On Wednesday, September 19, Giants fans celebrated another winning season: the Season of Sharing. During the home game against the Colorado Rockies that night at AT&T Park, fans were treated to a special program of activities paying tribute to Season of Sharing’s 26 years of work on behalf of Bay Area families in need.
Watch the recap:
Among the highlights:
- A pre-game ceremony at home plate saluting the Season of Sharing program. A third-inning video paying tribute to the work of Season of Sharing.
- A special rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” led by Ashkon Davaran, the force behind the 2010 Giants’ anthem, “Don’t Stop Believing” and a proud supporter of Season of Sharing.
A big thanks to the World Series Champions for their support!
About the Season of Sharing:
Since 1986, the Chronicle Season of Sharing Fund has distributed more than $85 million to help thousands of Bay Area families. The Fund offers one-time grants to help families in crisis so they can pay for housing and emergency needs. In addition, the Season of Sharing Fund supports food banks to provide 1.5 million meals each year to individuals and families who might otherwise go hungry. Over the last 26 years the Fund has been one of the largest donors to Bay Area food banks, providing them with more than $13.8 million.
All of the Fund’s administrative expenses are covered by the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund and the San Francisco Chronicle. As a result, 100 percent of the money raised by the Season of Sharing Fund goes directly to help local families and communities.
