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.
