Joe Montana, Paul Allen, Kenny Mayne headline Marshawn Lynch's Fam 1st fundraiser

New, comments

Marshawn Lynch hosted a charity dinner for his Fam 1st Family Foundation last night, and had quite a few familiar faces in attendance. Lynch and his cousin Josh Johnson started their Fam 1st Foundation to focus on putting on extracurricular educational workshops for at-risk youth to teach them skills outside of their basic education throughout the West Coast, and it's been something that Lynch has tried very hard to promote and grow during his football career.

Marshawn's dinner fundraiser took place at Seattle's Edgewater Hotel last night and he was joined by Jennifer and Joe Montana, Paul Allen, Pete Carroll, Pete McLoughlin, and a few of his teammates, including Jermaine Kearse, Doug Baldwin, Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, Will Tukuafu, B.J. Daniels, and others.

If you're wondering about the connection between Marshawn and the Montana family, Lynch and Jennifer Montana teamed up recently to do some work for charity. Lynch designed a chain for Montana's jewelry design company, which is staffed by a non-profit center in Oakland, and the proceeds for that go to Lynch and Montana foundations.
