Congratulations to Willow Glen’s Anthony Navarro and Clayton Wilson for being selected to the Charlie Wedemeyer All Star South team.
The 42nd Annual Charlie Wedemeyer All-Star Football Game, presented by the Rotary Club of Almaden Valley, will be held at Levi’s® Stadium on Saturday, July 16, 2016. The event is scheduled for 6:00pm kickoff and will feature the very best graduating seniors from 46 Santa Clara County High School football programs. The next generation of collegiate and pro hopefuls will lace up for a special evening at Levi’s® Stadium to raise money for charities supported by the rotary club. Over the years, the Rotary Club of Almaden Valley, a nonprofit organization, has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities both local and abroad. The Charlie Wedemeyer game accounts for a great deal of the funds generated by the organization each year.
