We thank our invaluable partners in the Sacramento Historical Society and Sacramento Pig Bowl – GUNS and HOSES for helping to bring the documentary to life.
We work together as a community to give back to the community.
For more than 70 years, this organization has brought together people like you to preserve and promote Sacramento’s golden history. As home of the first transcontinental railroad, the Pony Express, the first transcontinental telegraph and the center of the Gold Rush, the Sacramento region has a treasure trove of history to appreciate and discover.
The purpose of the Sacramento Historical Society is to preserve the heritage of the Sacramento region, to act as a resource for inquiries regarding local area history, and to promote a greater awareness of Sacramento’s regional and national history.
A small group of officers back in 1975 converted their good-natured badgering football scrimmage into a fundraising football game to help local charities. It all began as a friendly football game on a cold day in January 1975 that grew into an event attended by over 32,000 fans.
This original football game has now survived forty-nine years. We are proud to say we have played every year for the past 49 years and have donated over $1.5 million to local charities.
