Friends of the Guardsmen,

UPDATE: Cocktail hour will take place in the PAVILION ROOM, followed by lunch in the VENETIAN ROOM.

This year, we are pleased to welcome local ABC7 sportscaster, Larry Beil, as our Master of Ceremonies. Larry first moved to the Bay Area in 1989, where he spent five and half years at KTVU, before moving to ESPN as a co-host of Sportscenter for the next six years. Then, in 2001, Larry realized that life in Nor Cal is tough to beat, so he moved back to the Bay Area to join the ABC7 news team, where he has been ever since.
Table sales will be given priority seating, so round up your friends and colleagues and secure your seat today! For those buying "Axe" or "Go Guardsmen" tables that want recognition in the luncheon program, the cut off for submitting your company logo and related text is COB on Friday, November 8th.
A limited number of individual tickets will be released on Wednesday, November 6th.
Tables are on sale now!
THE TRADITION CONTINUES...
Go Bears! Go Cardinal! Go Guardsmen!
When & Where
The Guardsmen is a group of Bay Area men mobilizing their significant talents and resources to enhance and improve the lives of at-risk youth. This all-volunteer organization, founded in 1947, provides access to high-quality educational and outdoor activities for inner-city youth. The opportunities created through The Guardsmen's scholarship and campership programs mean that every year kids who otherwise would not have a chance at success are given the opportunity to excel as productive members of society. Each year The Guardsmen sends 2,500 youth to outdoor education programs and provides scholarship support to more than 250 students at Bay Area private schools.
The Guardsmen is committed to making sure that fundraising dollars are spent wisely, with the greatest need and highest returns always in mind. In fact, approximately 97 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to support programs for kids.
