SPOKANE, Wash.—Shriners Hospital received a major donation Wednesday in honor of the Seahawks Super Bowl win.

Dan Arrotta decided to put his passion for Shriners Hospital and his spirit for the Seahawks together and made a donation based on how many touchdowns the team scored on Sunday. The high scoring game led to a $2,500 donation for Shriners Hospital in Spokane.

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

However, the donations added up fast with the Seahawks Super Bowl win.

“It makes you realize, real fast, real soon you know the reality of what we're put on earth for and that is to help each other," said Arrott.

Staff at the hospital said community support is important.

"It's very exciting to know that there are business owners out there that want to serve as ambassadors for our hospital," said Angelique Heinzen with Shriners Hospital.

Arrotta, who owns Arrotta’s Automax, said he is not done donating. He wants to form a group of business leaders to help support Shriners Hospital. Arrotta promised to donate $50 for every car sold at his dealership in February.
