Newcastle residents will have the opportunity to meet Mack and Zoe Strong from 4 to 6 p.m. April 28 at the Newcastle Professional Center. A portion of the event’s profits will go toward the TEAM-WORKS Academy,  a program of the Washington Chapter of HOPE worldwide.

HOPE worldwide is a faith-based relief and development organization founded in 1991 that is dedicated to serving the poor and needy.

After 15 years in the NFL as a Seattle Seahawks fullback, Mack and his wife Zoe run the Mack Strong Team-Works Academy helping disadvantaged and at risk kids. The Strongs were named Washingtonians of the Year by Lt. Governor Brad Owen in 2011.

The Washington Chapter of HOPE worldwide provides services to at-risk individuals in the Puget Sound region through seasonal days of service and its signature program, the Mack Strong TEAM-WORKS Academy. The program was founded in 2002, growing out of the volunteer work of the Strongs.

Sweet Decadence owner Sandra Wixon has offered to donate 10 percent of sales during the two-hour period to Team-Works Academy.

“You can support a local business, support a local charity, and meet an NFL Allstar Fullback all in one afternoon,” said event organizer John Jensen. “Mack and Zoe are an inspiration to children through TEAM-WORKS Academy, and they are role models for those who want to give back to their community. They are a treasure right here in Newcastle.”

RSVP for the event by emailing John Jensen at jensenroofing@msn.com or going to the event’s Facebook page.
