Henry Parker Jr. has been an all-star salesman and ambassador for the Giants Community Fund’s annual 50/50 Raffle for the past 5 years. Henry was first introduced to the Fund through a former manager after working with the Golden State Warriors and Oakland A’s organizations, and knew the Fund’s program would be a perfect fit for his interests and experience.
A longtime fan of the San Francisco Giants, Henry enjoys spending time at the ballpark and interacting with Giants fans.
“No matter what my day holds, it could have been a horrible day where nothing seems to be going right, that I find a get-away from life stresses at the ballpark … I greet people with a genuine smile, or “Hello, how are you doing,” and really mean it. I just enjoy being around people.”
A few of Henry’s favorite San Francisco Giants moments over the years have been Barry Bonds Day and Bruce Bochy’s final game as the Giants manager. Henry credits the Fund’s community impact over the past 30 years to being inclusive of everyone from all walks of life. He appreciates that kids and teens are able to learn from each other on and off the field and hone their life skills such as empathy, collaboration and respecting others who may be different from themselves.
