This weekend was one for the memory book! On Saturday my wife and I went to Michael Bennett’s “Champs & Cocktails” charity event at the Columbia Tower Club. The charity is OCEAN — a program founded by Bennett that aims to “fight obesity through community, education, activity and nutrition.” Get more info at MichaelBennett72.com
Huge thanks to Angel, who organized the event...she was a rock star in how she ran things, it was an awesome experience and I look forward to future events!
The event was awesome…there were a ton of Seahawks there besides Michael…guys like Percy Harvin, Russell Okung, Greg Scruggs, Jesse “Tha Monstar” Williams, Jordan Hill, Phil Bates, BJ Daniels, and more!
It was cool to catch up with Michael, and he even remembered the phone interview we did while he was at the White House…
It was a blast to watch the Hawks interact with their fans, and the Columbia Tower Club is awesome…what a sweet view:
A one point in the event, Michael Bennett decided to be the DJ! Yes…#72 got behind the "wheels of steel".
What did he play? I gotta give him props for his first song selection! You can’t see Michael in the video all too well…but check out the song!
Turn Down For What!
After the signing I was lucky enough to grab dinner where some of the Hawks were there…I got to sit with Russell Okung, who is one down to earth cool fella! It was a blast chatting with him about sushi, karaoke, 80’s rock music, and more!
