For the last two years we have welcomed a new large sponsor, the Army. We still will always be looking for large sponsors in the future and continue to thank all the SPONSORS of the past. We have been blessed with many smaller sponsors that have made this game possible and allowed us to donate to many charities over the past years.
One of the primary charities is ALS. Charlie Wedemeyer has been an inspirational representative and has been a part of the Santa Clara County All-Star Football since 1989. Read all about his story.
This year's Banquet occurred on Monday, May 16th at the 300 San Jose bowling center. This year's speaker was Mike MacIntyre.

We had a GREAT crowd!
