A phone call between 49ers quarterback Alex Smith and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has led to a pretty fun opportunity for fans with a hearty appetite. Working with the 49ers Foundation, Smith and teammate Patrick Willis have organized a charity dinner Nov. 15 at Morton’s in downtown San Jose, where they, a few teammates and 49ers alums Keena Turner and Guy McIntyre will trade their uniforms and helmets for aprons and plates.
Fitzgerald participated in a similar dinner at a Morton’s in Phoenix, and he mentioned to Smith that it would be a great way to raise awareness for the Alex Smith Foundation. The dinner costs $250 per guest and includes a reception, live auction and a four-course meal served by the 49ers.
Now if only I could find a date who enjoys a nice meal served by 49er players, I’d be set!
Proceeds benefit the Alex Smith Foundation and the Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation. For more information, contact Frances Carter at 408-947-7000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
