TPC Harding Park, San Francisco
JUNE 6, 2014

32nd Annual Golf Classic

The NFL Alumni Northern California Chapter held it’s 32nd Annual Charity Golf Classic at TPC Harding Park on June 6, 2014. 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 – 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.

After a day on the world renowned Harding Park Course, 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 the NFL Alumni does in their communities, but how an event like this is a mini reunion for them to see former teammates and in many cases, former rivals. All for the sake of raising funds for Caring for Kids.
