Zero Motorcycles has donated a Zero DS motorcycle to the Steve Young/Jerry Rice Bay Area Classic. Now in its seventh year, the golf tournament is one of the primary fundraisers each year for a host of programs supported by the Forever Young Foundation.
Founded in 1993 by NFL Hall of Famer and Super Bowl MVP Steve Young, the Forever Young Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that serves children facing significant physical, emotional and financial challenges. Funds raised from events such as the Steve Young/Jerry Rice Bay Area Classic work to provide academic, athletic, and therapeutic opportunities otherwise unavailable to these children.
"Zero Motorcycles is very proud to be able to support the efforts of this amazing organization, its staff, its volunteers and its founders," said Abe Askenazi, chief technology officer for Zero Motorcycles. "Steve Young and Jerry Rice have become celebrity fixtures in the Bay Area and their wholehearted community outreach speaks volumes. As a corporate neighbor and progressive company, we believe we have a responsibility to support worthwhile organizations like the Forever Young Foundation. We are thrilled that our small gift helped raise much needed money that can be used to affect children’s lives in a positive way."
"It was wonderful to have Zero participate as a generous sponsor of our Steve Young/Jerry Rice Bay Area Classic," said Sterling Tanner, president of the Forever Young Foundation. "This is a very high-end event with donations ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 and so to have Zero give away such a valuable prize was a perfect fit. The motorcycle was a big hit with our guests, and it certainly created a lot of excitement when they realized that one of them would be taking it home. We appreciate Zero’s commitment to giving back and helping us to bless the lives of Bay Area children."
