“I called up Seattle companies and got some prices, and we figured if we could raise at least $7,000, we’d be able to do something in response to the banner,” organizer Aasheesh Shravah told CSN. ”So many people responded. It has been amazing the support this thing has received.”
“We’re going to try to keep it classy and represent the 49ers,” he said of the chosen billboard, which will feature the 49er's five Super Bowl trophies and a background photo of Dwight Clark's famous 1982 catch.
Shravah and the rest of the 49ers fans have already raised nearly $2,000 more than the $7,000 needed to buy the billboard, but all excess donations will go to the Seattle Children's Hospital.
