Seahawks safety Earl Thomas holds fundraiser for families in need

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Seahawks safety Earl Thomas and some of his teammates got together with more than 150 guests Monday night for an auction, dinner and drinks at a Bellevue restaurant to help raise money for Thomas' Guardian Angel Foundation.

The "Steaks and Seahawks" dinner was held at Daniel's Broiler in Bellevue. Q13 FOX Sports Director Aaron Levine was the MC for the event.

"Anything I do, I want to do it just like football," Thomas said. "I put my passion and everything I got in it. My teammates, you know, these people that are being affected by the same thing I'm going through. I'm gonna do the same thing -- inject my own passions. These guys, before they came to the Seahawks, they weren't playing with passion like that. I'm trying to tell you, and I'm comfortable saying it, I'm gonna have the same impact on the people that are fed."

In addition to various NFL-oriented community service activities like Play 60, Earl Thomas carries out a series of yearly efforts to help those who are less fortunate get back on their feet. His work annually includes a Thanksgiving turkey giveaway, a winter coat drive, and a free summer football camp for children in the town where he grew up.
