The Golden State Warriors Foundation and the Chase Center made this holiday season unforgettable for 32 youth from our Latino Men & Boys (LMB) and Oakland Youth Engaged (OYE) programs. Our youth and eight staff chaperones spent Christmas day at the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers game at Oracle Arena. As part of the Warriors’ season of giving, each guest received a new Chromebook laptop computer from one of the players.
“Every kid’s reaction was a complete joy. They had just gotten a mini-tour of Oracle, eaten a special breakfast, and went out on the court and met some players. They were all already over the moon, and then they got laptops! Every single person that was in the room watching all of the kids’ race to open their gifts had a massive smile on their face. It was impossible not to. It was so awesome to see them be treated like VIPs.”
