::Event: San Francisco 49ers Vernon Davis Holds First Annual Charity Weekend::

On July 18-20, San Francisco 49ers and Washington, D.C. native Vernon Davis held his first annual weekend extravaganza for charity that benefited the ANC Umbrella Foundation and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.

The weekend kicked off on Friday with a free football clinic for youth at his alma mater, Dunbar High School that featured a flag football game between Dunbar's alumni and the D.C. Police Department. On Saturday, celebrities came out to bowl for charity at Lucky Strikes and the weekend concluded on Sunday with a brunch and silent auction at the Park at 14th Street.

During the brunch, D.C. Council member Vincent Gray presented Vernon Davis' grandmother, Adelaine Davis with a plaque, as she raised Vernon and his siblings and is a major contributor to Vernon's success. Vernon is committed to continuing his contributions to his community, whether in Washington, D.C. or San Francisco. He is especially passionate about programs for children, whose parents are or were addicted to drugs.
