2019 Oak Tree Recipient
Congratulations to Simon Tissington from the San Diego Lions for winning the inaugural Oak Tree Award.
The item that yielded the highest funds during the 7th Annual North American Meet Up in San Francisco was a boot signed by none other than Jack Grealish.
Simon obtained the boot through a meeting opportunity in Minneapolis, Minnesota during Aston Villa's preseason friendly on July 17, 2019. The Jack Grealish boot was auctioned for $1100 USD.
