Holiday Heroes is full of surprises this season – prepare to be delighted!

Celebrate this season of giving with an event that brings the joy of the holidays to you, your family, and to hundreds of other Bay Area children and their families who need a little help to make this season magical.

Holiday Heroes is an inclusive environment where children and families from every background enjoy once-in-a-lifetime moments together. Our event seeks to inspire, motivate and delight.

1/3 of our event attendees are sponsored families. For some, this will be their only celebration this holiday season, and the gifts they receive at our event will be the only ones they enjoy.

Holiday Heroes will be celebrated in three very special ways this year.

First, in order to prioritize the safety of our guests at our in-person event, we require all attendees ages 12+  to be vaccinated. Guests 5-11 can attend if they are vaccinated with at least one shot or provide a negative test, and guests under 5 can attend with proof of a negative test. For negative tests, we will accept PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event or antigen [rapid] test taken within 24 hours of the event.  View details here.

Holiday Heroes will be outdoors (weather permitting) at Oracle Park for a magical evening of in-person activities to raise spirits as we raise funds.

Holiday Heroes will be a masked event, regardless of vaccination status, with proof of vaccination required.

Next, for those who choose not to attend in person, we will be sending you Holiday Heroes Wonder Boxes filled with sleigh-full of goodies and treats. you can enjoy At Home with … Holiday Heroes presented by Kaiser Permanente.

Finally, our 2021 goal is to bring joy and to raise spirits for 300 underserved children either through delivery of Be-A-Hero boxes or attendance at Holiday Heroes.

When: Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 5:30 PM

Where: Outside at Oracle Park for holiday cheer and merriment (health regulations permitting)*

Attire: Festive holiday attire

Who: Guests 12 and over who are vaccinated. Guests ages 5-11 with at least one vaccine shot or proof of a negative COVID test. And guests under 5 with proof of a negative COVID test. For negative tests, we will accept PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event or antigen [rapid] test taken within 24 hours of the event. View Holiday Heroes COVID-19 Protocol here.

Those unable to attend our in-person event can celebrate with Wonder Boxes and Be·A·Hero Boxes.

Why: To make spirits bright while raising funds for at-risk children and their families. In addition to 1/3 of our event guests being sponsored families, with funds raised at Holiday Heroes, we will continue to create permanent play structures in the Bay Area as well as provide grants to local Bay Area organizations.

Ages 12 and over must be vaccinated*

Those attending from home can order a Wonder Box full of holiday fun!

So how do you get in on the festive fun of Holiday Heroes?

You can experience the magic of Holiday Heroes in person at Oracle Park (vaccinated individuals ages 12+, kids under 12 will need to be vaccinated with two shots or provide proof of a negative COVID test, and kids under 5 will need to provide proof of a negative COVID test. For negative tests, we will accept PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event or antigen [rapid] test taken within 24 hours of the event. Proof of vaccination is required at our fully masked event.

You can also order your own Wonder Box (one per child). You can also have the chance to sponsor an underserved child’s attendance at Holiday Heroes or donate Be-A-Hero Box(es) to a child/family in need so they can share in the magic this holiday season.

Each magical box will be stuffed like a stocking with goodies and games, so get ready to unwrap some holiday spirit! Donated Be-A-Hero boxes will also contain essential items and gift cards to make the season bright for underserved children and their families.

Our 2021 goal is to bring joy and to raise spirits for 300 underserved children either through delivery of be-a-hero boxes or attendance at Holiday Heroes.
