49ers Academy Gala

Imagine 49ers, Giants, Warriors and Raiders all in the same game — and the name of the game is giving — it happened at the 49ers Academy Gala Under the Stars.  Watch the video, as seen on Red Carpet Bay Area KICU TV36:

The players traded the numbers on their jerseys for a number on a paddle and a chance to score a cruise to Dubai, trips to Cabo, Hawaii, London and more — all for a great cause — the 49ers Academy in East Palo Alto.  “We provide support services, counseling, mentoring, and after-school programs,” shared 49ers Academy executive director Michele Sharkey, “Our mission is to keep kids safe, on track and in school.”
