The countdown is on for Super Bowl 50, taking place Feb. 7, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. In the days leading up to the big game, there will be a slew of haute events taking place from Napa to Carmel. We’ll tell you about at least one different event each week so you can make plans to be a part of the festivities. This week’s featured activity is actually on game day. Let’s face it, most of us are not going to the game. The question becomes: where will you watch the game? You can join six Pro Football Hall of Fame legends for a Big Game tailgate and watch party in beautiful Yountville.
The pre-game tailgate party starts at noon, with NFL Hall of Famers and other special guests greeting those who gather at the Town’s Community Center for pre-game fun, food and libations. The Watch Party beginning at 2:30 P.M. will feature six exclusive lounge areas, each hosted by a Pro Football Hall of Famer including – Anthony Munoz, Jack Youngblood, Dave Wilcox, Willie Brown, Chris Dolman and Joe DeLamielleure— providing attendees with the opportunity to interact with the players up close and personally.
Lounges include complimentary food and beverage service, comfy sofas and a perfect view of the 14-foot, high-definition video wall showing football’s ultimate game. The first person to purchase an entire lounge will receive an authentic autographed Hall of Fame football. Each of the six lounges accommodates eight people and may be purchased for $5,000. Individual lounge seats are $500 each.
In addition to the lounge areas, there will be reserve tables for eight, each available for buy-out at $1,250. Table guests will each receive a Hall of Fame ball cap and Sharpie markers suitable for autographs. Individual reserve seating at tables is $125 per person and includes two drink tickets and serve-yourself game day chow. NFL Legends will mix and mingle with guests during the game.
General Admission standing/partial bench seating for the broadcast is priced at $75 per person. Admission to the tailgate party is $25 per person. A silent auction will also take place, featuring a Hall of Fame 50th anniversary helmet, autographed by over sixteen Hall of Famers, along with other items.
Sponsored by the Yountville Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Yountville’s Tourism Improvement District, a portion of the net proceeds of this once-in-a-lifetime experience for football fans will benefit the Tug McGraw Foundation’s research and service programs focusing on traumatic brain injury.
“Our watch party is the perfect way to rock the red zone and enjoy the Big Game while supporting a great local charity,” says Cindy Saucerman, President and CEO of the Yountville Chamber of Commerce. “It will make a fantastic holiday gift for football fans and may be your only chance to experience a championship game in the company of the Legends who created the game.”
