“At Boeing, we support teams and events that are the pride and passion of our employees, driving positive change in the places where we live and work,” said Bill McSherry, Vice President of Government Operations at Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “That’s why we are proud to once again team with the Seahawks on Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing. Together we’re rewarding hundreds of local kids each year for their leadership and hard work in their schools and communities.”
Launched in 2014, the Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing program seeks to empower youth in Washington by providing Seahawks game tickets to community organizations that serve kids throughout the Northwest. LOY provides 100 game tickets to a group or organization each regular season home game.
During each of the eight regular season games, 25 students will each receive four (4) game tickets, breakfast with a special visit from a Seahawks Legend, concession vouchers, and a Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing sweatshirt.
The Seahawks and Boeing are committed to helping provide safe, healthy activities for local youth. The program recognizes and rewards students who are committed to their school work, demonstrate leadership, and are active in the community. It also recognizes kids who may be facing difficult challenges and need a positive boost.
