Seattle Sports and Bonneville International are pleased to announce that after just one day the “John Clayton Memorial Fund” has raised more than $41,000. The John Clayton Memorial Fund will benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society, a MS research organization supported by Clayton, as well as his wife, Pat.
“These generous donations reflect how much John meant to sports fans not only in Seattle but all over the country,” said Bonneville Seattle Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Cathy Cangiano. “I know John would be thrilled to see how his legacy is making a difference for a cause that meant a lot to him.”
Donations to the John Clayton Memorial Fund are still being accepted at SeattleSports.com/ClaytonFund (#ClaytonFund). 100% of the donations received will be donated to the MS Society.
The Seattle Seahawks donated $12,000. The Fund received an initial investment of $10,000 donated by Bonneville International Corporation, the parent company of Seattle Sports.
“Part of our company’s mission is to give back in the communities where we serve,” said Darrell Brown, President of Bonneville International. “John was a valued employee who used his own powerful voice for good. We believe this is the best way to honor his memory.”
