On the evening of September 27th, for the third year in a row, Ladies of the Empire attended the amazing Cocktails and Couture event to benefit the 49ers Academy in East Palo Alto. The event was hosted by Carolyn Chaikovsky at her beautiful home in Woodside. The 49er Academy provides under-served, low income students with the resources, resources and support services they need to achieve academic success in middle school, high school and beyond. Once again, Dennis Brown, 49er Alumni, and all-around great guy, was there to welcome ladies to the event with a glass of bubbles. The models included Mandy Shanahan, Raheem & Dominique Mostert, Deforest & Ashlyn Buckner, Pierre Garcon, Dante Pettis, and the amazing Alumni Duo, Steve and Tina Bono. Keena Turner and his lovely wife, Linda also graced the runway this year. The wine flowed, the music bumped, laughter echoed and beauty, in grace, heart and appearance shined everywhere. Our LOTE attendees this year were Oona Smith, Monique Morales, Razya Pollock, Denahi Crawford, Canan Sonuk and Cindy Robins. Each year our squad gets a little larger. We sure hope to see you there next year, ladies.

I want to thank you so much for giving me 49er tickets. My dad and I had so much fun! This was my first football game! And for our team to win was just the best. Also the seats we had were perfect, and we were able to see the whole field. The weather was also perfect. I had so much fun. This was a great way for me and my dad to hang out. My dad would also love to thank you for giving us this opportunity to go. He had lots of fun. That day was honestly one of my favorite days this summer, and I want to thank you again for that!

“Dear Ms. Tate,
Thank you so much for the 49er tickets. My dad and I had so much fun! We were the first ones in line to go into the stadium, that is how stoked we were to go see the Niners win!!
Once we got into the stadium, we went to the museum and it was amazing! My favorite part of the museum as the life size statues of the players that made it to the Hall of Fame. We probably took like 100 pictures!
During the game, Breida #22 ran 65 yards to make a touch down – that was shocking! The final score was 30 to 27, and we won! Thanks again for giving me and my dad the tickets for the 49ers game. We will never forget this game.
