SPOKANE, Wash.--A North Spokane business man’s love for the Seahawks is helping a local hospital. 

The owner of a car and RV dealership along Division is a big fan of the Seahawks. He is such a big fan that he decided to make a donation based on their score and to give away a car since they have been doing so well.

"I've been following the Seahawks since the Krieg, Largent days in the 80s, and it seems like they'd always get close but no cigar,” said owner of Arrotta’s Automax, Daniel Arrotta.

Arrotta came up with a contest for a new VW Beetle in Seahawks blue.

He also found another way to cheer the Hawks on and help a charity along the way.

"For every touchdown scored, we'd give $500 to Shriners Hospital as a donation,” said Arrotta.

Arrotta was surprised by how much he would have to donate after the Super Bowl. He loved that his team did so well, but did not realize they would score so many points.

"Didn't anticipate there was going to be that many touchdowns by the Seahawks but quite honestly it was exciting and thrilling to watch,” said Arrotta.

Arrotta said he will give away the car at the end of February. He will make the $2,500 donation to Shriners Hospital on Wednesday.
