Youth are homeless for three reasons: Home doesn't exist, home isn't safe or home isn't supportive. On any given night, 1,000 kids and young adults are along on King County's streets.
Together we can make a difference with United Way of King County, the Seattle Mariners and Bonneville Seattle at the second annual All-Star Softball Classic for Homeless Youth, presented by Microsoft.
On June 21, 2014, 710 ESPN Seattle's Bob Stelton, KIRO Radio's Don O'Neill, SuperSonic Gary Payton, Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, and other big names join them at Safeco Field to help fight youth homelessness. United Way's All-Star Softball Classic for Homeless Youth makes history by bringing thousands of people together to end youth homelessness.
The teams will be captained by Mariners Hall of Famers Dan Wilson and Jay Buhner, with Edgar Martinez as head coach. The five-inning celebrity softball event will have all the trimmings of a game at Safeco Field, full of action, laughs, and surprises. First pitch is at 3:00 p.m. at Safeco Field!
Celebrities are continuing to confirm as the event approaches, so check back often for updates.
The event helped raise $1.2 million for homeless youth last year, and we hope to increase that number in 2014!
