NORFOLK -- Norfolk native Kam Chancellor of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks is giving back to Hampton Roads this weekend.

Tonight, Chancellor’s foundation will host the Kam Cares Celebrity Game Night at Dave & Buster’s in Virginia Beach. All proceeds will benefit the Kam Cares Foundation, which supports children and families facing economic hardships in the Hampton Roads and Seattle areas. Within the last year, the Kam Cares Foundation has donated more than $50,000 to community efforts, in addition to clean water initiatives in Ethiopia.

The fun continues on Saturday with Chancellor's Fifth annual Seven Cities Family and Friends Memorial Day Cookout at Lakewood Park in Norfolk. It's from noon to 6 p.m. and it's free.

He's bringing a few NFL friends along, too, for you to meet, including “Legion of Boom” teammates Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, and Byron Maxwell and Hampton native Tyrod Taylor of the Baltimore Ravens.

Entertainment by Z104’z Shaggy and DJ Canrock. There will be plenty of activities for the kids, including moon bounces, face painting and relay races. Prizes and giveaways have also been provided courtesy of the Seattle Seahawks.

Don't miss the first-ever Talent Showcase and BBQ Rib Cook-off – judged by Chancellor and other NFL guests.

“This has been an amazing season for me, so I’m excited to bring my teammates to Hampton Roads again this year,” said Chancellor. “Winning the Superbowl is not only a personal and team accomplishment, but I consider it a hometown victory. The 757 community has been super supportive in my efforts on the field and in the community, and I’m really looking forward to spending the holiday weekend with family, friends, and fans – and enjoying some good barbeque.”
