Former Seattle Seahawks safety Jordan Babineaux had fun with the audience while fielding questions during the inaugural Answers for Elders’ 12 Days of Goodness program at the Kent Senior Activity Center on Tuesday.

The event raised awareness that, according to numerous studies, 60 percent of seniors are without regular visitors. The program, in its fifth year, aims to inspire fans to give at least one act of kindness to a senior during the 12 days, Dec. 12-23.

Dennis Boyd, a lineman who played for the Seahawks from 1977 to 1982, and SuperFan appeared with Babineaux on Tuesday. They shook hands, signed autographs, joined seniors for lunch and distributed prizes.
