Sonic Legend Shawn Kemp to Wait Tables at Fundraiser for Donaldson

On August 9, mayoral candidate James Donaldson is hosting a "fund raising island party" at Island Soul restaurant in Southeast Seattle from 4-7 p.m. (suggested donation, $50). Wings, plantains, salad, coconut corn muffins, and wine will be served. Serving that fare will be none other than legendary former Sonics power forward Shawn Kemp. For all his indiscretions (hard partying, fathering multiple children out of wedlock), Kemp remains one of -- if not the -- most beloved Sonics ever to have worn the green and gold. To wit, when the franchise announced its all-time team on its 40th anniversary a few years back, the ovation Kemp received was significantly louder than any of his former all-timers -- Gary Payton, Jack Sikma, Gus Williams, and Detlef Schrempf among them. Donaldson didn't make that team, but evidently Kemp's on his now.
