The Wender Weis Foundation for Children is thrilled to present the seventh annual Holiday Heroes. Our event is being held on Monday, December 5, 2016 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 more than 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 - 6:00 PM, ON THE FIELD at AT&T Park (weather-permitting). There will be also early entry to the Batting Tunnels and Dugout, as well as to the event itself.

During the main reception, there will be a photo opportunity with the 2010, 2012, and 2014 Giants World Series trophes.
Soon, we will announce our 2016 Inspiration Award Recipients as well as local Bay Area athletes and mascots scheduled to attend.
