The Wender Weis Foundation for Children is thrilled to present the sixth annual Holiday Heroes. Our event is being held on Monday, December 7, 2015 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 over 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.
A special invitation-only VIP Reception takes place from 4:30 - 5:45 PM, where there will be early entry to the Batting Tunnels and Dugout, as well as to the event itself. We will also have the presentation of the second annual Inspiration Award only during the VIP Reception. Smores on the field will be part of the VIP portion only.
For our sponsor heroes at $3000 and higher, we will offer private access to a special reception. Special wine and appetizers will be included as well. This will be hosted by one of our Celebrity Heroes.

Wender Weis Foundation for Children's mission is to improve children’s self-esteem and self-confidence. We strive to do this by funding existing programs, and creating new programs, that provide children living in underserved communities with the gift of encouragement and self-confidence. When children believe in themselves and have others believe in them, they are able to develop the emotional, social, and physical skills that allow them to lead healthy, motivated, and inspired lives.
