Wideout Deion Branch will host a flag football tournament and MVP party to raise money and awareness for the Deion Branch Foundation this weekend at Qwest Field.
Other Seahawks players will join Branch in the two-day tournament that starts Saturday and features both men’s and coed divisions. The entrance fee is $475 per team of 12, which includes a two-game guarantee, a gift bag and admission into the MVP party on Saturday at Jillian’s Billiards.
All proceeds go to benefit the Deion Branch Foundation, which was set up after Branch’s newborn son contracted meningitis in 2002. The foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to offer support to children’s mental, physical, and emotional well-being by assisting programs and initiatives aimed at improving their quality of life.
