San Jose, CA – The much anticipated 2nd Annual 408 Niner Empire Chapter BBQ was held this past weekend at Lake Cunningham Regional Park. The event was organized by Chapter President Lisa Gutierez who along with her sister Elena showed up at 5am at the park to start setting up. After working year around for different causes in their community, it was time to kick off a new season of celebrating life with the Empire family.
After word got out after last year’s much talked about event, folks who missed it made sure to mark their calendars as soon as this event was announced.
San Francisco Bay Area recording artist Jose Santana’s management connected with the 408 Event coordinators and announced he would be shooting his next 49er Anthem “Niner Party” music video at the event as well.
As fans arrived and began setting up their canopies the grill was lit and volunteer grill masters Marlon Allen and Abel Rueda of F.F.F. (Forty-Niner Faithful Forum) went to work.
