On March 24, 2014, KNBR,City National Bank, and former San Francisco 49er, Brent Jones teamed up to promote youth sports on safe and accessible fields. Dinner with a Legend is an annual event devoted to supporting the work of TLC for Kids Sports, a community outreach program aimed at improving youth sports fields throughout the greater Bay Area.
The evening was filled with laughs as Tom Tolbert, KNBR radio personality and retired NBA player, interviewed Brent Jones in front of an intimate crowd of fans about his past and present career endeavors. The former tight end turned businessman took the time to answer questions from fans, reminisce on his victory of winning three Super Bowls, and offer his insight on the future of the 49ers. Brent Jones has been a dedicated Officer and Board Member of TLC for Kids Sports since its inception, to insure that every child can play on a safe and handicap accessible field.
KNBR, the Bay Area’s ‘sports leader’ radio station regularly collaborates with celebrity athletes to raise funds for TLC, including their annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament. Last year’s Dinner With a Legend featuring Basketball Hall of Famer, Jerry West raised $10,000.
