Rex Foundation receiving donation checks at Giants game

(l-r) Trixie Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Sandy Sohcot, and Bill Walton join McAfee’s Michael DeCesare and David Milam to celebrate checks from the San Francisco Giants and McAfee at the Giants’ Jerry Garcia Day August 1.

Jerry Garcia’s 70th birthday celebration at AT&T Park on August 1, 2012 was a night of fun, meeting and greeting, renewing old bonds, and cheering on the Giants in an event that’s become a San Francisco tradition. Moonalice added to its legend with two memorable sets before the game, one in Triples Alley at a VIP reception and one on the ball field for everybody.

We’re very grateful for the fact that besides all the good times, the event raised major-league funds to support the Rex Foundation’s work:  at a pre-game ceremony, we were thrilled to receive $27,000 from the Giants and an additional $10,000 from event sponsor McAfee.
