No birdies, just Seahawks to support local chamber event

Former NFL players joined other Renton businesses on the green at the Renton Chamber of Commerce’s Fifth Annual Golf Classic.

On July 29 at Fairwood Golf and County Club, the tournament and auction raised money for the Family First Community Center. Jordan Babineaux, NFL Alumni Association President Joe Tafoya and others big hitters and long drivers attended the event, according to the chamber.

The event had many sponsors, with King and Bunny’s Appliances as the presenting sponsor.

“A huge thank you to Jason Parker of King and Bunny’s Appliance, for continuing the Parker legacy of support which continues to benefit our causes, our kids and our community in ways we can all inspire to achieve,” a release from the chamber stated.

The chamber said the 11 former NFL players were a big reason the event was such a success.
