ABOUT THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
One of the oldest teams in Major League Baseball, the 140-year-old franchise moved to San Francisco from New York in 1958. After playing a total of 42 years in Seals Stadium and Candlestick Park, the team moved to the privately constructed, downtown ballpark on the corner of 3rd and King. 2023 marks the Giants 24th season at Oracle Park. The organization is widely recognized for its innovative business practices and baseball excellence. The franchise has been named the Sports Organization of the Year by Street & Smith’s Sports Business Journal and Baseball America. Oracle Park is also the only ballpark in the country to have earned Silver, Gold and Platinum LEED certification for an existing building.
Since opening its gates, Oracle Park has become internationally renowned as a premier venue in the world of both sports and entertainment. On the diamond, more than 67 million spectators have witnessed a number of magical moments, including a franchise record 107-win season in 2021, three World Series Championships (2010, 2012 & 2014), the raising of four National League Pennants and eight playoff appearances. The ballpark has played host to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and some of music’s biggest acts, including Lady Gaga, Beyoncé & Jay Z, Ed Sheeran, the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band, Green Day and Billy Joel. It also was the site of the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens.
Off the field, the Giants Community Fund uses baseball and softball to promote health, education and character development to propel youth in underserved regions to be positive forces in their communities. The Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity, is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and sustained by contributions from individuals, businesses and foundations through a number of special partnerships and fundraisers.

ABOUT GEORGE MARK CHILDREN’S HOUSE
George Mark Children’s House (GMCH), located in San Leandro, California, provides life affirming care for children with illnesses that modern healthcare cannot yet cure, or for those who have chronic medical conditions. GMCH bridges the gap between hospital and home, offering safe, excellent medical care in the comfort and warmth of a home-like setting for patients who do not need the resources of a full children’s hospital. GMCH offers five types of service: Transitional Care for children who have usually been in an acute care hospital setting and still need medical care, but not of an acute nature, before they transition to being cared for at home; End-of-Life Care, where a patient’s family can stay in its own family suite and surround their child with the love and the support; Respite Care, where patients receive high quality medical care and appropriate activities while offering parents and families a short break from the nonstop care at home; Perinatal Care provides expertise, resources, support and information for at-risk preterm births about prognosis and prospective complications, establishing continuity of care for infants and parents; and Bereavement Care to provide ongoing support of families following the death of their child.
