Create moments of wonder that spark a lifetime of possibility

An annual event hosted by the WWFC, Holiday Heroes is a family-friendly fundraising event raising funds and spirits for underserved children this holiday season

We believe all kids deserve a chance to just be kids. We encourage youth to laugh hard, grow tall, and dream big through access to sports, after school programs, health care services, and exceptional experiences.

Event Details

December 7, 2021

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 our full COVID protocol 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.

Impact that can be measured.

  • “The Fontela children have expressed numerous times how grateful they are for the caring community who puts together the Holiday Heroes event. We’re most thankful for the lesson of “sharing” that our girls take away from this night. More than just gifts and fun experiences, they go home with the best value of learning how giving is more important than receiving. Thank you to all who makes this event happen and puts those smiles on many faces of children!”

  • Fernanda Rivera was diagnosed with Leukemia and came to stay at Family House in June of 2016 with her family, so that she could have a Bone Marrow Transplant at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. In August while she was undergoing chemotherapy in preparation for her transplant, her family’s apartment in Modesto was destroyed in a fire, and they lost everything. Fernanda, her mother Jessica and Myluna her sister were thrilled to attend Holiday Heroes, because it meant that for a short while they could just have fun away from the hospital and celebrate being together at the holiday time.

  • Attending the Holiday Heroes event gave the Junior Giants players a place to have unlimited fun for an evening. Kids got to be kids, no matter their background; everyone leaves a winner with a smile on their face.
