Team owner Jed York and co-chairmen Denise and John York lead the foundation’s mission and efforts, which has raised more than $8 million just in the last seven years alone, earning the philanthropy a well-revered reputation among National Football League foundations.
Playing off of the wild success experienced in years past, the entire roster of players for the San Francisco 49ers are eagerly anticipating the return of Pasta Bowl III, presented by SanDisk on August 11. This charity dinner is a family-style affair that not only features the expected silent auction and youth activities, but also dishes up the nightly entertainment in the form of NFL players serving as celebrity waiters. The fundraising event is geared towards companies who want to demonstrate their commitment to philanthropy by showing their support for the San Francisco 49ers Foundation with the purchase of a table set for 18 guests. An upscale wine tasting reception will also be conducted, featuring selections from California’s wine country regions of Napa and Sonoma. In addition to the good time that is sure to be had with the likes of Frank Gore and Patrick Willis serving up plates of pasta, two celebrity team waiters will also host dinner guests at each of the sponsored tables.
Along with event partners Silicon Valley Leadership Group, the 49ers Foundation will donate the proceeds from Pasta Bowl III to support City Year San Jose/Silicon Valley, Santa Clara Athletic League, and Fresh Lifelines for Youth. Throughout the course of its 17-year history, the 49ers Foundation has served as the nonprofit extension of the legendary team, raising funds and community support for activities that inspire the youth of today to become respected and successful leaders of tomorrow. Team owner Jed York and co-chairmen Denise and John York lead the foundation’s mission and efforts, which has raised more than $8 million just in the last seven years alone, earning the philanthropy a well-revered reputation among National Football League foundations.
