Each week we’ll be profiling one of our Super Bowl 50 Host Committee volunteers, learning a bit more about how and why they got involved with the Host Committee Volunteer Program.
This week our volunteer spotlight is on Adina Carter from San Francisco.
SB50: Why are you volunteering for the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee?
AC: The opportunity ticks a ton of boxes for me. Being a lifelong San Franciscan, I am eager to show off this unique part of the world to all of the people that will visit here because of the Super Bowl. I am also a huge sports fan who comes from a family of huge sports fans, so I knew the minute I saw this opportunity that I had to jump on it. My background in event management is also something I am looking to revive through this opportunity.
SB50: You have volunteered with us on 50 Tour. What has been your favorite moment so far?
AC: I am a San Francisco 49ers fan, but I have enjoyed showing off the Oakland Raiders Vince Lombardi Trophies to their fans! My first 50 Tour stop was Pacifica, and although it’s San Francisco 49ers territory, Oakland Raiders fans definitely showed up to see the everything that was going on.
SB50: What makes the Super Bowl special to you?
AC: I like how the Super Bowl game ties together all of the different initiatives from the NFL throughout the season, including giving back to the local communities. Plus, it is always exciting to see which teams make it!
SB50: What do you like most about the Bay Area?
AC: I like that the Bay Area has something for everybody. You can live here and do whatever you want at a short distance and at any time during the year. Many people in other parts of the country can’t do things year round, it makes the area very special.
