Michael Bennett as Seahawks Santa

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Seahawks’ Michael Bennett put on a blue and green outfit Sunday, but it wasn’t for the big game.

Oh and also a Santa hat.

The defensive end surprised kids at a Bellevue fundraiser as Seahawks Santa.

Bennett read ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas to children from Bellevue Lifespring, Bellevue Boys & Girls Club, and Jubilee Reach.

He also performed in Snowflake Lane riding a bike up and down the street.  Bennett’s wife and three girls joined him at the Nutcracker Float.

The fundraiser supported Tateuchi Center. A performance arts center in Bellevue that will open in 2020.

Macklemore and his family also attended the event.
