Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin is the featured speaker for the South King County Scholar Athlete Fund breakfast on Tuesday, July 10 at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center, 31510 Pete von Reichbauer Way S.

The engagement will raise scholarship funds for scholar-athletes and programs in the Auburn and Federal Way school districts.

“Although South King County does not have the same revenue or donor base as other areas of King County, our students and programs have the same needs,” said King County Council member Pete von Reichbauer. “This breakfast is an opportunity for our community to come together and support the best and brightest scholar-athletes South King County has to offer.”

Doors open at 6:30 a.m. The breakfast begins at 7:30 and concludes at 8:30 a.m.
