Posted Jan 31, 2018

The San Francisco 49ers Foundation announced on Tuesday the dates for its final 49ers Winter Fest presented by Chevron.


The San Francisco 49ers Foundation announced on Tuesday the dates for its final 49ers Winter Fest presented by Chevron. From March 16 – 18, the Faithful will have the opportunity to join 49ers players, coaches, alumni, ownership and Winter Olympians at the Resort at Squaw Creek to raise funds benefiting Bay Area youth. The 49ers Foundation will begin a new chapter in 2019 with a rebranded fundraising event.

The all-inclusive Winter Fest weekend includes opportunities to ski, snowboard and skate with Olympians, silent and live auctions with unique packages and experiences, a Chalk Talk hosted by 49ers coaches and players, daily events for kids and young adults, and more. All proceeds from 49ers Winter Fest presented by Chevron will benefit the non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, San Francisco 49ers Foundation.

“For nearly two decades, 49ers Foundation supporters at Winter Fest have played an integral role in the foundation’s ability to give back tens of millions of dollars to the Bay Area community, enabling the 49ers to use its platform to reach, educate, and engage countless youth through programming including the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute, 49ers Academy, and so much more,” said 49ers co-chair Dr. John York. “We are forever grateful to the Tahoe region and our Winter Fest supporters over the years and look forward to making the last installment in Squaw Creek the best one yet.”

The 49ers Foundation harnesses football to educate and empower Bay Area youth through collective innovative and community-focused strategies. From the Foundation’s award-winning STEAM Education initiatives and nationally recognized Youth Football programs, to impactful community partnerships with leading non-profits, the franchise is dedicated to inspiring the confidence and collaboration youth need to tackle possible.

“Winter Fest has been a marquee fundraising event in support of the 49ers Foundation for many years and the 18th and final installment will be no different,” said 49ers Foundation executive director Justin Prettyman. “We’re excited to bring Winter Fest’s grand finale to the Resort at Squaw Creek, and move ahead in the coming years to bring a more diverse slate of programming opportunities for the Faithful to support our efforts to give back to Bay Area youth.”

Last year alone, the 49ers Foundation invested more than $4 million back into the Bay Area community and in its 27 years in existence has donated more than $40 million. In recognition of their unparalleled commitment to charitable giving, the 49ers were the winners of the ESPN Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year in 2017 and the Beyond Sport 2015 Sport Team of the Year.
