Junior Review Committee selected
Former Team Up Challenge students assist SBGB in funding decisions
This summer, Silver & Black Give Back selected 10 former Team Up Challenge students to serve alongside our executive review committee as part of the Summer Team Up Challenge. These former Team Up Challenge participants helped to decide where Silver & Black Give Back's Summer Team Up Challenge funding would be distributed and will go on site visits to the selected nonprofits throughout the summer.
Each of these students will also receive a $1,500 scholarship toward his or her higher education.

Kids takeover the Stars game June 27
On Saturday, June 27th kids took over the Freeman Coliseum at our 2nd Stars Silver & Black Give Back Theme Night. Dozens of kids who participate in SBGB's programs had the opportunity to shadow members of our Spurs Sports & Entertainment staff - they were Star Squad members, an in-arena host, PA announcer, content producer, social media coordinators and more! All fans who attended the game received SBGB sunglasses.
Their mentors made sure they were involved in every step of the production. Their future is so bright, we've gotta wear shades!
