Volunteer Spotlight on Riley Steinmetz

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 Riley Steinmetz from San Francisco.

SB50: Why are you volunteering for the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee?

RS: My parents were Super Bowl volunteers in Indianapolis. They are still telling me about how great their experience was! After hearing all of their stories, I knew I had to sign up as soon as the Super Bowl came to my city. I started volunteering in June and all of the incredible people, both with the Host Committee and those I have met while volunteering, have kept me coming back to help week after week

SB50: You volunteered with us on the 50 Tour, what was your favorite moment?

RS: I wouldn’t say there has been one particular moment. Rather, it’s been getting to talk to so many people from around the Bay Area that I wouldn’t have gotten to meet otherwise. I’ve made great new friends that I’ve gone to games and concerts with, I know those relationships will continue to grow into the future as well!

SB50: How are you involved in the community otherwise?

RS: I volunteer at a local hospital and participate in other one-off volunteer opportunities through my job. I also live in the Presidio which has tons of volunteer opportunities for its residents.

SB50: Where is your favorite Bay Area place?

RS: I love San Francisco. It’s the place I call home and has everything a person could possibly want or need. It’s a city where everyone can truly be whoever they want to be, and people embrace that diversity. Sonoma County would be a close second — I’m a big fan of trying out all of the wonderful Syrahs and Zinfandels the vineyards have to offer!
