49ers Foundation Dig for Gold Fan Feature
Following the 49ers Foundation's Dig For Gold Auction x Sale x Sweepstakes presented by TIBCO, we discovered our newest offering, the Play Catch Bundle featuring gloves, towels and a practice used football was well received not only from our loyal foundation supporters but our furry faithful as well! Meet Vanessa, and her dog Montana, having some fun with their new favorite ball! Be on the lookout for Play Catch Bundles to return this season.
And the winner for best virtual background goes to...Kelvin K. from San Jose! Kelvin secured all four of the banners that used to hang at Levi's® Stadium via the 49ers Foundation's Dig For Gold auctions and sales throughout last season. Upon getting each banner autographed on his own, Kelvin now has a truly one of a kind display to admire and share. Thank you for your support of the 49ers Foundation and Bay Area youth, Kelvin!
Annie is a 49ers super-fan who proudly shows her passion for the team by sporting her sideline worn gear and blowing up social media with dream experiences - all won through the 49ers Foundation's Dig for Gold auctions. Annie's Kyle Shanahan Super Bowl pack and Joe Staley's sideline gear pack are high on her list of favorites. The pre-game sideline experience during the 2019 Playoffs vs. Minnesota was her all-time favorite package she has won from Dig for Gold. Not only because of the win and opportunity to see 49ers greats up close, but she also got to experience it with her mom, who Annie considers the second-biggest fan behind herself. It was a memory that will last a lifetime! It's hard for Annie to imagine anything better than the 2019 experiences shared with her mom, sister, Aunt Neta and Calvin, but her excitement about what lies ahead in the Dig for Gold auctions for the 49ers 2021 campaign keeps this Faithful Fan going.
Meet Brian, a 49ers Foundation supporter and longtime 49ers Super-Fan! A Bay Area native from Daly City, Brian loves getting game worn items for his growing memorabilia collection from Dig for Gold, which benefits the 49ers Foundation and the communities Brian has grown up in. Brian says, "Taking part in once-in-a-lifetime experiences and owning items is priceless. One of my favorite items that I own is Kendrick Bourne's game worn jersey that I just adore. His game ethic, character, and heart will always be cherished in 49ers lore. Other cool items won in the Foundation auctions were autographed Bosa, Sherman, and Garoppolo jerseys.
Makenda and her father, Jim have been consistent winners at our Gameday Auctions this past season. Through their donations to the 49ers Foundation, they have not only helped to educate and empower Bay Area youth, but they have been able to compile a full 49ers game-worn uniform!
