"The 49ers Foundation is excited to continue our seasonal tradition of giving back to our community this Giving Tuesday with our seventh annual KNBR Holiday Sports Auction," said 49ers Foundation executive director Justin Prettyman. "All proceeds from these incredible experiences will be invested directly back into our community through our direct service programs, 49ers EDU presented by Chevron and 49ers PREP presented by U.S. Bank, and our four legacy nonprofit partners. We hope you will join us, KNBR, and our generous partners at PepsiCo in supporting Bay Area youth, and create unforgettable memories for your loved ones this holiday season with our auction packages."
Additional packages included in the auction offer autographed jerseys from Brock Purdy and Fred Warner, game-worn cleats from Trent Williams, an autographed helmet from Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, game-used footballs, and much more.
"We are once again honored and thrilled to continue our long-term partnership with the 49ers Foundation," said KNBR VP/market manager Larry Blumhagen. "Our goal at KNBR is to help raise much needed funds so the Foundation can continue its core and very vital mission of connecting with and supporting the thousands of underprivileged youth in the Bay Area."
