KALISPELL – Stillwater Christian School is well-known for attracting high profile speakers for its annual fundraising event.

This year they’re going for the end zone as they bring Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to the Flathead.

Stillwater bills itself as the only private K-12 school in the Flathead and every spring throws a major fundraising event which brings donations from not only the Stillwater Christian School parents and alumni but the broader community as a whole.

That will certainly be the case his year with a speaker of Wilson’s caliber. The program, entitled “For Such a Time as This, an Evening with Russell Wilson” is set for Wednesday, May 2.

In addition to hearing Wilson speak, the event will feature a variety of other fundraising features, including a raffle of Seahawk’s memorabilia.

Wilson, a third-round draft pick for the ‘Hawks in 2012, led Seattle to its first-ever Super Bowl victory the following year, and a second consecutive appearance in 2014. He’s the second highest rated passer out of all current NFL quarterbacks.

Tickets for the event are already available from the Stillwater Christian School. Click here for more information.
