Seahawks running back Chris Carson and offensive tackle George Fant will sign posters starting 1 p.m. Saturday at Louis Gs in Oak Harbor.
Signatures won’t cost anything, but donations will be accepted to help the family of Oak Harbor resident Chuck Walter.
Walter was recently been diagnosed with ALS, and John Youngsman Jr., owner of the restaurant, said he wanted to do something to help the family with medical and travel costs.
Signed memorabilia will be auctioned at the event and all proceeds will go toward the Walter family.
“He’s known for being just a nice guy and a very well-liked person in the community,” Youngsman said of Walter.
The fundraiser happened to coincide with Youngsman’s long-time goal of bringing players to his restaurant.
“We’re always kind of known as a place to watch a Seahawks game,” he said.
Fans who come in the most “outlandish” Seahawks gear will be entered to win prizes such as free pizza and signed merchandise. Youngsman said he also wanted to drive home that residents “don’t have to travel 90 miles to experience something pretty cool.”
“We just wanted to do something, not only for someone in need, but also because we wanted to inject a little spirit and positivity in Oak Harbor and the Whidbey Island community.”
