Holiday Heroes 2017
The Wender Weis Foundation for Children is thrilled to present the eighth annual Holiday Heroes. Our event is being held on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at AT&T Park, home of the 2010, 2012 AND 2014 World Series Champion, San Francisco Giants. We will turn the Club Level at AT&T into a holiday wonderland for families, children, and more than 300 underserved children and their families. Holiday Heroes endeavors to connect at-risk children with professional athletes with the goal of providing the recipient children with hope & direction. An invitation-only VIP Reception takes place from 4:30 - 6:00 PM, ON THE FIELD at AT&T Park (weather-permitting). There will be also early entry to the Batting Tunnels and Dugout, as well as to the event itself. S'mores on the field and special VIP-only children's activities and special wine and appetizers will be part of the VIP portion only. BARRY BONDS, SF Giants Legend and Home Run King, will be presented with the fifth annual Inspiration Award. We will also have a "Broadway in San Francisco" performance by cast members from Disney's Aladdin and a special performance by Broadway's Jenn Gambatese, starring in School of Rock. We will also have other VIP surprises. A wonderful group of athletes will be donating their time and appearing at Holiday Heroes. Our main reception takes place at 5:30 PM on the Club Level, where this year we introduce our Teen Hangout, an area reserved for our 11-15 year old guests. For the rest of the Club level festivities, expect arts & crafts, holiday cookie decorating, teddy bear stuffing, video games, mascots, athletes, and a whole lot of holiday FUN and merriment. We also sponsor more than 300 underserved children's attendance at Holiday Heroes, and this year, we also hope to bring 200 kids from Sonoma and Napa, who have been displaced by the fires. For all of these sponsored children, Holiday Heroes might be their only holiday celebration. We want to try to bring a bit of joy to kids during a time of uncertainty. A few of our event beneficiaries include the Giants Community Fund, the Warriors Community Foundation, San Francisco 49ers Foundation, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, Do It for the Love Foundation, and the Fit Kids Foundation. In addition to raising funds for at-risk children, Holiday Heroes is an interactive, family-friendly evening. There will be cookie decorating, face painting, video games, a photo booth, teddy bear stuffing & holiday arts & crafts.There will also be access to the batting tunnels and dugouts. There will be buffet ballpark food and drinks for kids of all ages as well as an AMAZING silent auction filled with trips, hotels, restaurants, family activities, and sports memorabilia & experiences. It will be a ginger-snappin', jolly time!
