The tournament proceeds are used to support the mission of Caring for
Kids. Each year, the NFL Alumni selects a former Raider and 49er as their
Annual Honorees Ė this year Raymond Chester from the Raiders and Dana
Stubblefield from the 49ers were dynamic representatives of both their
former teams and the NFL Alumni.

everyone came in for a dinner program that included video highlights,
a live auction, and presentations to Raymond Chester and Dana Stubblefield.
Both honorees spoke about how they enjoy and are proud of the good work

rivals. All for the sake of raising funds for Caring for Kids.
