Get ready to raise those paddles and join us for our annual fundraiser, Words to the Wise, on Thursday, September 19 at 6:00 pm at the stunning Oshman Family Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto. This special event celebrates our Fifth Anniversary and will benefit our high school debate programs
Our exciting evening features a live debate showcasing our top debate students competing against experts from the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, a program of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. They will debate the topic of arms sales, the national policy debate topic for the 2019-2020 school year.
The evening will also include a lively Fund-A-Need with Emmy Award winning radio and TV personality, and auctioneer par excellence, Liam Mayclem, giving guests the opportunity to help us reach our fundraising goal. You'll also enjoy a reception in the outdoor courtyard and three-course dinner with drinks, all in a beautiful setting.
Your attendance gives some of the best and brightest high school students in Silicon Valley the chance to build confidence and gain critical communication and listening skills through SVUDL's programs, opening up new career path opportunities. It's set to be an entertaining and inspiring night to remember!
