The 49ers Foundation will kick off the 2018 football season with the annual fundraiser 49ers Foundation Kickoff: Players for a Purpose presented by SAP, taking place on the field at Levi's® Stadium on August 28th. The event will offer guests the opportunity to mingle with 49ers players, coaches and executives while they dine on the end zone at Levi's Stadium, and enjoy unparalleled access to the entire 49ers football roster, a VIP Reception presented by NRG featuring premier California wines, activities and entertainment featuring 49ers players.
All event proceeds will go to support the 49ers Foundation's mission to educate and empower Bay Area youth.
"Players for a Purpose will be a great event to kick start the 2018 football season while directly supporting 49ers Foundation beneficiaries," said 49ers Foundation executive director Justin Prettyman. "The evening will be an opportunity for fans to mingle with 49ers players, coaches and executives while helping to educate and empower Bay Area youth."
The event will commence with a welcome reception sponsored by NRG in the 49ers Museum where guests will walk through the history of the 49ers and witness demonstrations by 49ers EDU student participants. Guests will then head to the sidelines which will feature wine tasting from premier California wineries, photo opportunities on the field with the team's five Super Bowl trophies and meet & greets with 49ers alumni. The dinner program will feature a "Family Feud"-style game between 49ers players and guests, as well as a live auction, and fund-a-need to raise money for the Foundation's mission to educate and empower Bay Area youth.
Last year, the 49ers Foundation donated $4 million to Bay Area non-profit organizations.
