This dinner recognizes and honors the Northern California athletes and coaches of the 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games in Rio and the athletes who competed in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. The Welcome Home Olympians Dinner, a 28 year old Bay Area tradition, features a reception with autograph signing, a silent auction of Olympic memorabilia and other exciting items, followed by a fabulous dinner and celebration of our Region’s Olympic and Paralympic Athletes.

The evening’s program, emceed by NBC Bay Area Emmy winning news anchor

The proceeds of this event will benefit the Northern California Olympians (NCOPA), an organization of Olympians & Paralympians from past and present teams who live and work in Northern California. The NCOPA offers fellowship to members of past and present Olympic & Paralympic teams, coordinates Olympian appearances at schools, community, and corporate events, maintains an athlete training & travel grant program and supports the active visible nationwide Olympian organization.

We anticipate this high-profile Bay Area event will be a sellout as it was in 2004, 2008 & 2012. Media coverage will include television, print, internet and radio. There are some co-op advertising opportunities possible. Enclosed you will find the sponsorship categories that are available. Please make your commitment TODAY.
