EMPIRE ROW TAILGATE - Experience a taste of Candlestick at Levi's!
San Francisco, CA. - Sixteen year old 49ers fan and recording artist Anjali Asha is welcoming Super Bowl 50 with a song. She released her video on Friday night via social media and has been getting a great response from all over the world.
This beautiful song which she wrote herself is all about the city that she loves as is seen in the back drop of the music video. Great job by one of our own who tailgates at every game with Levi's Stadium's "Tailgater of the Year" winners Empire Row. - GO NINERS!!!
San Francisco, CA. - Superbowl 50 will be played in The Niner Empire territory. Unfortunately it will not feature our San Francisco Forty Niners but it will be showcasing The Carolina Panthers and The Denver Broncos. These two are some of the NFLs classiest organizations so for those of you attending please give them a warm welcome! Good luck to both teams! May the better team win!
San Francisco, CA. - Over the years every Christmas day our 49er brother Mike and our 49er sister Chale have separately gone out alone on their own to feed and pass out warm items to the homeless around San Francisco. They met each other this year while hanging out at Empire family picnics, tailgates, etc and on game day before Christmas 2015 they got together with us and set up a clothing drive at the Empire Row Tailgate. The Empire family showed up in full force and donated warm items for a good cause.
On Christmas morning we met up together in our cars bringing additional bags of items plus got pastries, coffee, water bottles, turkey/PB&J sandwiches. We all followed Mike to different locations to feed the less fortunate and pass out warm items. Continue reading
It was there that we met some very wonderful people. They got to know my husband, myself and my kids and always welcomed us with open arms. After learning that my husband wasn't working they were concerned about how we were going to provide Christmas presents to our kids since money was tight. Unbeknownst to us they had signed up our kids for gifts from Toys for Tots.
It was such an amazing feeling to know that my kids were not going to experience the pain of not having gifts on Christmas. In the months leading to the next years Christmas (2013) I thought it would be a great experience to give back to someone in need just like it was done for my family. So I proposed the idea of a toy drive to the committee. I'll admit they weren't to fond of the idea due to a concern of there not being a good turnout or enough participation from members.
But I went out on a limb & contacted Toys for Tots just to get a general idea of what goes into doing a toy drive. That's when I met Virginia Cardinal... She's the Coordinator of Toys for Tots Fresno County. She was excited to work with us & her excitement fueled my desire to keep pushing the idea on the committee. I was able to get 1 committee member on board (Raul Madrigal) and even his wife (Stephanie Madrigal). Together we decided on a date, a location, made a flier & posted it on Facebook to see how many members were interested. To our surprise there were lots!
