  3. Ryan Vogelsong BALL

  4. Brandon Belt BAT

  5. Tim Lincecum JERSEY

Raffle ticket are $20 each or 3 for $50.

  1. All of the proceeds from the raffle tickets--i.e., 100%--will be donated directly to our two causes this year and split evenly between them.
  2. Patrick was a key person in the Giants organization in helping make our annual Wharton Club Day at AT&T Park events happen, and his loss two years ago in a battle with leukemia has been poignantly felt by his family and the Giants organization. The funds raised by our efforts this year will go to benefit an educational fund set up for Patrick's children and also to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help other adults and children suffering from leukemia and lymphoma.

    This is an opportunity to both do good and directly thank an organization that has been key to supporting the Wharton Club's ability to offer such an amazing event to our Club members over this past 7 years.
  3. Everyone is eligible! We encourage as many people as possible to participate and would appreciate your forwarding this opportunity to anybody who might be interested in winning a piece of baseball memorabilia. Raffle participants will need to be present to win.
Please take the opportunity here to both support a great cause and also have the Wharton Community be recognized as a good citizen within the world of the San Francisco Giants and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!

About Patrick Landers
Born on August 29, 1973, in Washington, DC, Patrick Landers grew up in the nearby suburb Bethesda, MD. After college, Patrick moved to San Francisco where he began his lifelong career with his beloved Giants. He married his wife Christine Patterson September 20th, 2003. An Eagle Scout, Olympic torch-bearer for the 1996 Atlanta Games and marathon runner, Patrick's adventurous spirit and mischievous grin infected all those around him. Not just an employee, but a fervid fan of the Giants, thankfully he got to celebrate the 2010 World Series Championship with his adopted city and work family. His love for sports ran second only to his love and devotion to his family and friends. A proud, loyal, and loving husband and father, Patrick leaves behind his wife, Christine Patterson Landers; two sons Aidan (6) and Ty (3) whom he loved more than anything, sisters Mary Margaret Landers and Kathryn Marie Knowles, parents John Jay and Mary Theresa, nieces Emma and Lindsay Nie, his beloved dog, Carter, and countless friends in the US and Canada. During his year-long battle with cancer, Patrick demonstrated strength, courage, bravery, and taught us to live every moment of life to its fullest. He will forever be our hero.
