One hundred percent of the proceeds will support the 49ers Foundation non-profit beneficiaries.
“We’re thrilled to launch the third annual 49ers Foundation Holiday Sports Auction after an overwhelmingly positive response from the Faithful. Over the last two holiday auctions, our fans helped raise more than $200,000 to fund initiatives that educate and empower at-risk youth, like our award-winning 49ers EDU and 49ers PREP,” said 49ers Foundation executive director Justin Prettyman. “All proceeds from the auction assist the 49ers Foundation’s charitable programs in giving back to those in need this holiday season. We’re grateful to KNBR and the Bay Area for supporting the 49ers Foundation.”
“The 49ers Foundation does a fantastic job of utilizing its numerous educational and leadership initiatives to serve underprivileged young people in the Bay Area,” said Cumulus Media-San Francisco Vice President/Market Manager Doug Harvill. “KNBR 104.5FM & 680AM is proud to partner with the 49ers Foundation to help raise funds for such a worthwhile organization.”
