University Club Hosts Juma Ventures and Bill Walton
The University Club Atop Symphony Towers, San Diego’s chic private members-only club, kept their philanthropic efforts in high gear with a reception hosted by the Giving Group's Charity and Wine events headed up by Chair Bob Alden July 13th, 2011.
On the scene were many of San Diego's caring movers and shakers including John Dadian, Jackie Harris, Social Diary Magazine's Margo Schwab and Scott Johnston, and Council Member Marti Emerald.
The focus of the evening was Juma Ventures best explained by special guest and basketball Hall of Famer Bill Walton.

"Juma is a fantastic organization that is doing front line work with the most vulnerable members of our society" explained Bill Walton. "These young people desperately need and rightfully deserve our love, support, encouragement and attention. The terrific children in the Juma programs are only looking for the chance that so many of us take for granted in our own lives. They are not asking for a hand out, rather a hand up. Think of all the sacrifices that other people have made for us in our climb up the mountain in the game of life. We cannot pull the ladder up behind us. With privilege and success come responsibility, duty and obligation. Make a difference. Give Juma and the dreams for a better tomorrow that burn so brightly in the hearts and minds of our young people a chance to blossom. I am proud of and loyal to the Juma cause, mission and purpose. Please, won’t you come with me? Let’s be the difference."
Well said Bill.
Juma's mission is explained by the following. "Juma Ventures San Diego Juma is a unique organization that breaks the cycle of poverty by ensuring young people complete a four-year degree. They do this by employing low-income youth as vendors at Qualcomm Stadium and PETCO Park – Juma obtains bank accounts for youth-earned funds while administering financial literacy and providing college services and mentoring. Juma’s ultimate goal it to ensure the successful completion of high school and college. Over 97% of Juma Ventures’ Youth graduate high school, with a 91% college going rate!"
“Charity and Wine is not just a knowledge forum and reception; it is a unique fundraising opportunity,” explained Giving Group Chair Bob Alden.
Cool too is that for the month leading up to Charity and Wine events, invited guests are extended an exclusive invitation to join the University Club. The club then donates the new member’s enrollment fee directly back to the non-profit! .... How cool is that!
Social Diary Magazine's Margo Schwab and Scott Johnston were happy to support this Juma Ventures event.
P.S. - The University Club in San Diego is known as San Diego's finest private business club for a reason...it's done right!
