Found October 24, 2013 on Fox Sports:
The first Starbucks opened in Seattle in 1971, and it has been an institution in the city ever since. The Seahawks played the first game in franchise history five years later. Nearly four decades later both are going strong, Starbucks' stock price hovering at the $80 mark on NASDAQ and the Seahawks sporting the best record in the NFC at 6-1 -- and briefly holding the world record for loudest crowd . So imagine the excitement of some Emerald City residents when this greeted them at the drive-thru line of a Starbucks branch on Wednesday. @PeteCarroll Thank you, Coach! Proud to partner with you, the @seahawks and @ABetterSeattle to help our community's young people. -- Starbucks Coffee (@Starbucks) October 23, 2013 The two Seattle powers joined forces on Wednesday to raise money for A Better Seattle , a community-based program founded by Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. In exchange for a $50,000 grant from Starbucks, Carroll and some of his players served as "guest baristas" at various Starbucks branches throughout the city.
