Fifth Anniversary Fundraiser - Words to the Wise

Thursday, September 19, 2019
Oshman Family Jewish Community Center

To celebrate our 5th anniversary this year, we’re launching a new fundraising event: Words to the Wise. Join us on Thursday, September 19, 2019 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center at the Taube Koret Campus for Jewish Life in Palo Alto. Our goal is to raise over $250,000 to help us continue expanding our programs to give more low-income students in Silicon Valley the chance to grow in confidence and engage in issues they care about through learning the valuable (and fun) art of debate.

The event will begin with a cocktail reception, followed by a quick-fire policy debate round that will pit one of SVUDL’s top student teams against a team of two professionals who are former student debate champions in front of a VIP panel of debate judges!

The evening will also include a Fund-A-Need, giving guests the opportunity to “raise the paddle” to help us reach our fundraising goal. It will be a lively evening to remember. Please join us by becoming a sponsor or buying individual tickets online.
