Celebrity Auction


25th Annual Celebrity Dinner Auction


Keena Turner

Our 2019 Celebrity speaker is 49er Keena Turner!

After finishing his standout playing career as a student-athlete at Purdue University, Keena Turner was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 1980 NFL Draft.  The San Francisco 49ers traded for Keena on draft day. This trade would turn out to be beneficial for Keena and also the 49ers.  Keena played his entire 11-year NFL career for the 49ers as a linebacker. Through his career as a 49er he was a Pro Bowl selection and retired with four Super Bowl rings.  Keena was a member of the 49ers while they were Super Bowl Champions in Super Bowls XVI, XIX, XXIII, and XXIV.

After retiring from the National Football League, Keena stayed involved with the 49ers.  He has been involved with the 49ers as a player and as part of the team’s front office for more than three decades.  In February of 2018 Keena was promoted to be the Vice-President and Special Advisor to the General Manager for the 49ers.
