Local FASTSIGNS® Team Offering “12th Man” Sports Signs to Fans, Raising Money for Local Hospital
(KIRKLAND, Wash.) January 24, 2014 – With the anticipation of Super Bowl XLVIII building, the die-hard Seahawks fans at FASTSIGNS® of Kirkland have started prepping for the big game by creating and printing up “12th man” sports signs for fans to show support.
“Initially we came up with the idea of printing these banners in support of our Seahawks out of sheer excitement for this weekend’s game,” said Greg Shugarts, co-owner of the Kirkland FASTSIGNS. “They have been a really good customer of ours for many years and we are just so ecstatic they have come this far this season. Our city of Kirkland was the original home for the Seahawk’s headquarters—all the more reason we want to stand behind them and show them that they have the best fans around.”
After printing several of the signs for interested customers, the FASTSIGNS team decided to use this opportunity to raise money for another local organization: Seattle Children’s Hospital.
“For every 12th man sports sign we are able to sell, we are donating 50% of the proceeds to the Children’s Hospital,” explained Brent Pettersen, co-owner of FASTSIGNS of Kirkland. “Word has been spreading quickly, but we haven’t yet reached our goal of selling 200 of the banners, to be able to donate a total of $3,500 on behalf of the community. We hope more fans will respond to not only show support for our Seahawks, but help raise money for the hospital in the process.”
