San Francisco 49ers owners Denise and John York will be honored tonight in San Jose with City Year’s Service Leadership Award for their work in the Bay Area community through the 49ers Foundation.

City Year, which for more than two decades has given young adults the skills and opportunities to improve their futures beginning with a year of full-time community service, specifically recognized the 49ers Foundation’s “Safe, On Track, and In School” program.

“City Year San Jose/Silicon Valley is proud to honor Denise and John York, the San Francisco 49ers and the San Francisco 49ers Foundation with our Service Leadership Award for their commitment, dedication and investment in education and our community,” said Beach Pace, executive director of City Year San Jose/Silicon Valley.

“Through the family’s leadership, the San Francisco 49ers Foundation has contributed $10 million over the last eight years to non-profits throughout the San Francisco Bay Area,” the organization wrote on its website.
