Slam dinner - March 28th, 2019
Supporters from the SquashDrive community gathered on March 28, 2019 at the Olympic Club in San Francisco for our annual Slam Dinner. Attendees had the opportunity to learn more about SquashDrive, beginning with a cocktail hour where they conversed with SquashDrive students. SquashDrive middle schoolers Jahlil Lindsay and Leo Ibarra wowed the crowd as they opened the dinner with their original Slam poem. Then, throughout the course of the dinner, the community was excited to hear about SquashDrive’s growth over the course of the past year from Board Chair Stephen Seelbach and Executive Director Lauren Patrizio Xaba. Highlighted in their speeches were the four graduating SquashDrive seniors-SquashDrive’s first class to graduate high school and matriculate to college. SquashDrive senior Piera Miller received a standing ovation for her moving speech about her time in SquashDrive and plans for the future. Thanks to the generosity of the SquashDrive community, SquashDrive will be able to continue to support these students as they begin their next chapter.
