18th Annual Tribute to Jackie Robinson & Scholarship Gala | April 26, 2014
Sheraton Harbor Island Resort
The Tribute to Jackie Robinson & Scholarship Gala was originally established to honor the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in baseball. Since our first event in 1997, the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA has awarded over $225,000 to more than 150 students in Southeastern San Diego to help them pursue their dreams of higher education. And there's more. Through the generosity of our inspired patrons, close to $2,000,000 has been dedicated to program scholarship support for kids and families living in San Diego County's most critical community.
