Bringing the first week of the school year to an uplifting close, today I took part in a very special presentation and reveal of over $20,000 worth of musical instruments to the students of Oakland’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary, featuring a surprise performance by popular recording artists The Family Crest. Working in partnership with The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation (MHOF), StubHub awarded nearly 400 students, staff and district executives on hand. Presentations offered words of praise and inspiration to the students and faculty for the well-deserved donation to the school and the music teacher, Alison Streich, who received Oakland Unified School District’s Teacher of the Year Award this past year.
Being able to support our NextStage Social Good program with creative direction, design, and photography is immensely rewarding and one of the many reasons I enjoy working with StubHub. Read more about the program here and make sure to check out our partner the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation.
