A Huge Week for One of Our Executive Directors!

Sep 24, 2017

Congratulations to Michele Huntzinger, Executive Director of StandUp For Kids – Silicon Valley, for winning the San Francisco Giants’ Isabelle Lemon Community Spirit Award!

“It was a big week for Michele Huntzinger. The San Jose resident and executive director of StandUp for Kids-Silicon Valley was honored as the winner of the San Francisco Giants’ Isabelle Lemon Community Spirit Award on Tuesday during a pre-game ceremony at AT&T Park. The award recognizes a volunteer who exemplifies the commitment to community service and “can-do” spirit of Lemon, a Giants Community Fund board member and former promotions manager for KNBR.

“With the award, Huntzinger received a $2,500 grant for the volunteer-run nonprofit, which aims to provide safe places for more than 2,500 homeless youth in Santa Clara County. Then, Wednesday morning, she was at StandUp for Kids’ fundraising breakfast, hosted by the silicon valley organization’s Leadership San Jose program. The packed house of generous early-risers at Villa Ragusa in Campbell contributed an additional $130,000 for the cause.”
