2012 bay area investors dinner
On behalf of our students, THANK YOU to all of our 2012 Investors Dinner supporters! This year’s event raised $500,000, which will be invested directly in low-income young leaders who have the grit, character, and determination to succeed but lack the opportunities.
With this generous support, Summer Search can reach even more students like Dexter and Raquel, who we heard from at the event:
I assume you all have heard the term high risk/high reward? It was self-doubt that held me back, and Summer Search challenged me to trust myself and see more of the high potential rather than the high risk in me. - Raquel Gonzalez, '03
No matter the circumstance, true winners keep climbing. As I stood 10,000 feet in the air on a peak in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, I no longer felt the weight of being poor, fatherless and Black but instead felt a new sense of hope and inspiration.
- Dexter Moore, '05
