Silver & Black Give Back Looks Ahead to the 2013-14 Spurs Season

Silver_Black_Give_Back_logoThe 2013-2014 Spurs season is upon us and the start of another season means Silver & Black Give Back is hard at work serving its mission of engaging young people to enrich their communities.

Spurs_Team_Up_Challenge_graphicTwenty student groups from across San Antonio will begin their Team Up Challenge projects this month. Past groups – including the Northside’s Jayci Derby – have made an astonishing impact on our community. Thirteen year old Jayci visited her grandfather’s grave at Ft. Sam Houston two summers ago and realized that many gravestones had no adornment for the holidays. She has set out on a mission to honor every veteran’s sacrifice with a holiday wreath as a youth ambassador for Wreaths Across America.

Silver & Black Give Back recently launched the Future Stars program, presented by SWBC, at several YMCA locations throughout the city. This basketball program is aimed specifically at young girls, encouraging a love for the game of basketball while teaching important character lessons like teamwork and integrity.

You can help Silver & Black Give Back serve youth in our community by participating in exclusive fundraisers with our coaches and players, such as Tux ‘N Tennies.  The 2014 Tux ‘N Tennies gala, presented by SWBC and H-E-B, will be on Friday, January 10 at the AT&T Center. The much anticipated evening is always a unique opportunity to bring the entire Spurs family together for fun festivities and a worthy cause.  The well-known and much-loved event dates back more than 20 years and is famous for the unusual dress code of tuxedos, gowns and tennis shoes.
