Storm getting back in the community

SeattleStorm.pngDoppler and Storm CEO Karen Bryant will represent the organization on April 1 for some worthy causes.
The Storm front office will join members of the Seattle Majestics and champion Seattle Pacific women’s soccer team at the Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club for the 7th Annual Girls in Sports Day. The event begins at 10:30 a.m. and more than 100 girls across King County are slated to participate. The Majestics, which open their IWFL season on April 11, plan to hand out tickets to the game while the soccer team is the guest speaker.
Downtown, Bryant will speak at a Nothing But Nets rally at Westlake Park beginning at 2 p.m. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Microsoft, Boeing, Seattle Sounders FC, Union for Reform Judaism, the people of The United Methodist Church, UNA-USA, the World Affairs Council and the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) are hosts along with the Storm. The aim is to increase awareness and help raise funds to send life-saving nets to refugees in Africa.
During the event, partners and the public will have a chance to take a free kick against a Sounders FC player and take a shot with the Storm mascot, Doppler, in exchange for a small donation.
The overall goal of Nothing But Nets is to send 275,000 nets to protect over 600,000 refugees by World Malaria Day on April 25.
Bryant, whose daughter celebrates her first birthday on Sunday, is also the official spokeswoman for the 2009 Greater Puget Sound March for Babies on May 3. Center Ashley Robinson also will represent the organization as a spokeswoman. Bryant’s daughter was born two months prematurely. You can read more about it here.
