SEATTLE -- Are Seahawks fans ready to taste the Seattle rainbow?
In honor of Skittles fan Marshawn Lynch, Wrigley candy is auctioning off three items of "Seattle Mix" Skittles that feature the Seahawks' iconic blue and green colors. Three lucky fans will have the chance to win packs of Skittles in an online auction beginning at 8 p.m. Wednesday and that closes on Saturday at 8 p.m.
On Wednesday night, one item that includes the special Skittles and a Skittles-covered football was drawing bids of up to $5,100. A second item of Skittles and a Skittles-covered helmet was drawing bids up to $3,750. The final item -- of Skittles and a Skittles-covered megaphone -- was drawing bids up to $2,900.
All proceeds will benefit Lynch's charity, the Fam 1st Family Foundation.
Skittles will also cheer on Lynch during Sunday’s big game by donating $10,000 to the Fam 1st Family Foundation for every touchdown Lynch scores. The Fam 1st Family Foundation was started by Lynch, and is a nonprofit group advocating for families around San Francisco's bay area.
Don't have money for the auction? Don't worry. Seahawks is rewarding a limited number of lucky Seahawks fans through surprise Skittles “Seattle Mix” giveaways this week in Seattle. Fans should be on the lookout for special appearances by "the Rainbow," as those events are expected to take place throughout the week.
