Unfortunately it will not feature our San Francisco Forty Niners but it will be showcasing The Carolina Panthers and The Denver Broncos.

CONGRATULATIONS – EMPIRE ROW TAILGATE!!!
Christmas Morning 2015
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.
Erie Chapter – Family road trip to Cleveland
ERIE, PA – Hello my name is Tara Holmes-Ruiz and I have been a 49ers fan all my life living in Erie, PA. My story starts from a tragedy but brings me to the blessing it is today. My younger brother Francisco Lasanta was a Die Hard 49ers fan and always had dreams of going to his first Niner game. Unfortunately before he could ever make it to one, he was in a motorcycle accident which took his life at only 32yrs of age.
That was when I decided to honor his memory by keeping his tradition of family football nights alive in our home. I reached out to fellow Niners across the world through social media when my friend and Niner brother Andre all the way from Niner Empire Germany helped me out. He got me connected with Rajeev Prasad and The Niner Empire Organization. After filling out a chapter application everything began falling into place. By the grace of god the NINER EMPIRE ERIE, PA Chapter was born.
