Last night Armando and I were given the opportunity to attend the Holiday Heroes Children Fundraiser hosted by the Wender Weis Foundation for Children.
A coworker of mine had originally received the tickets but was not feeling well and I was invited at the last minute. I dressed with going only to work in mind, but I had Armando bring me my pumps and clutch at the end of the day for a night out in SF.
The event was held at AT&T Park and the fundraiser benefits the Junior Giants Baseball Program, 49ers Foundation, Children of Shelters, Raphael House and the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center. Their mission is to provide encouragement to under-served kids to impact their future in a positive way. Funds were made by purchasing tickets, participating in the silent auction, and SF Giants Christmas Tree Raffle.
There was plenty of food and drink was provided and many fun activities for the kids that attended such as cookie decorating, stuffed animal stuffing, and face painting. There was a video game center and all of theBay Area Team Mascots! I felt like a kid myself and got my own stuffed monkey, that Armando claimed for himself by the end of the night I took photos with Sharkie the San Jose Sharks mascot as well as Jeremey Affeldt.
We even participated in the silent auction and won a Raider's Football signed by the entire 2012 team. This will make a great Christmas gift for my dad and we both felt great that our purchase will be going straight to the charities the event was sponsoring. I'd love to attend more benefits like this because not only was it fun, it was also for a great cause.
