HAYWARD (KRON) — Dozens of families in Hayward are celebrating Thanksgiving early this year.

The Hayward Adult School partnered with a number of agencies to feed low-income and foster children in the area.

And this isn’t the first time.

The number of families in need continues to grow year after year.

Jack Del Rio faced a difficult early matchup in his foundation’s inaugural bocce-ball tournament Tuesday. It was Del Rio’s team of Raiders coaches against the squad from Hayward High, where Del Rio played three sports.


“Yeah, that was tough,” Del Rio said. “I mean, we got beat by Hayward.”


Del Rio’s team bowed out early. But his event, held at Campo di Bocce in Fremont, was a win, attracting 32 teams and raising funds for several East Bay causes, including the athletic programs of Hayward, Mount Eden and Tennyson high schools, NorCal Special Olympics and the Alameda County Deputy Sheriff’s Athletic League.


The Raiders’ bye week allowed Del Rio to host the tournament during the season. He said part of the funds raised would go toward new pads, helmets and other equipment for the three Hayward-based public schools’ football teams.


“Football’s been good to us, and we — just as a family, my wife and I — want to give back to the community,” Del Rio said. “So it’s awesome to be able to do this, have fun for a great cause and be able to do something specifically for the people here.”


Among the Raiders’ coaches competing Tuesday were Todd Downing, John Pagano, Sal Sunseri and Mike Tice. Former 49ers and Cal head coach Steve Mariucci helmed a team that included celebrity chef and Raiders fan Guy Fieri. The event also included a silent auction — a dinner with Del Rio and his wife, Linda, went for $10,000.


Mariucci, along with John Madden, has hosted a bocce tournament for charities in the Bay Area since 1999. The NFL Network analyst gave a candid assessment of Del Rio’s bocce technique.

“For a defensive player, linebacker kind of guy, it’s pretty decent form,” Mariucci said. “Bocce is a touch sport, a finesse sport. Defensive guys have trouble usually. But Jack’s got a little finesse to him.”


Defensive end Khalil Mack also showed some finesse in a brief on-court cameo. Derek Carr, Reggie Nelson, Karl Joseph, Giorgio Tavecchio and most Raiders rookies were spectators. General manager Reggie McKenzie made an appearance.


In the wake of a 27-24 win at Miami on Sunday, it made for a lax afternoon for the Raiders — mostly.


“You’re gonna compete,” Del Rio said.


Added Linda Del Rio: “I have the coaches’ wives on my team. Talk about competitive.”


Mariucci could attest. Two years ago, at Raiders training camp in Napa, Mariucci challenged Del Rio to an on-air bocce match during an NFL Network segment.


“It was an upset,” Mariucci said. “He beat me.”
