“Warren Moon: A Football Life”
Red Carpet World Premiere Set For Seattle
Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon will host the NFL Films Documentary on His Life
Kenny Mayne, longtime ESPN personality and Washington State native, will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the red carpet premiere of Warren Moon: A Football Life in Seattle on Thursday, October 2. Mayne joins hosts Warren Moon and his on-air partner at KIRO Radio Seattle Steve Raible for the star-studded event. Additional VIP guests attending include Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and other current Seahawks, as well as former players and teammates of Moon such as Blair Bush.
The one-hour documentary produced by NFL Films focuses on the career of Warren Moon, the record-setting quarterback from the University of Washington, former Seattle Seahawks Pro Bowler and 2006 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee.
The event will be held at the EMP Museum, beginning with a VIP Reception at 6:00pm, followed by the screening of the film and a question-and-answer session with Moon. An auction will be held, with proceeds benefiting the Crescent Moon Foundation, which Moon founded in 1989 that provides scholarships for students who have displayed a commitment to their community.
“Warren Moon’s long road to the NFL and the Pro Football Hall of Fame included stops at different schools and in different countries,” said NFL Films Producer Ryan Kelly. “He faced bigotry from without and disquiet from within; and along the way he became a stereotype-shattering superstar who helped open the door for other African-American quarterbacks. This is a story that fans should know and appreciate, and we’re honored to help tell it.”
The premiere is made possible through the generosity of several sponsors across the country. Presenting Sponsors of the evening include Alaska Airlines, L’Oreal, Safeway and Sports 1 Marketing.
Limited seating is available for the premiere, which is nearly sold out. For more information, or to purchase tickets or sponsorships, visit http://www.CrescentMoonFoundation.org.
Warren Moon: A Football Life debuts on NFL Network Friday, October 3.
