Warriors and Comcast SportsNet Bay Area to Host Make-A-Wish Holiday Party at Oracle Arena
Team Will Welcome 15 Children From Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area For A Night Of Holiday Fun On Monday, December 2
As part of the team’s Plays for the Holidays outreach campaign, the Golden State Warriors will host a Make-A-Wish Holiday Party for 15 children at Oracle Arena (7000 Coliseum Way, Oakland CA 94621) on Monday, December 2 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., the team announced today. The Warriors, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area have teamed up to transform the Warriors home court into a children’s theme park, where Bay Area youth with life-threatening medical conditions will have the opportunity to fulfill their wish of meeting and playing with Warriors players Toney Douglas, Festus Ezeli, Draymond Green and Nemanja Nedovic. Comcast SportsNet Bay Area’s broadcast talent Brodie Brazil and Erin Coscarelli will also be in attendance.
“The holidays are a season of giving, and there isn’t a better feeling than sharing a special moment with a child,” said Warriors forward Draymond Green. “Not every child is able to enjoy the holidays the way others do, so it’s great the Warriors and Comcast SportsNet are joining together to make this a memorable experience for these kids.”
On Monday night, Warriors Hype Woman Ruby Lopez will welcome the children to Oracle Arena, which will be filled with interactive activities and games including the Comcast SportsNet SportsCaster Experience booth, gingerbread house station, photo booths, basketball games and other fun activities for the kids. This is the third year the Warriors, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area have teamed up to bring joy to the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions and their families.
“Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area is thrilled to be invited for this special event for a third year in a row,” said Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area Program Director Hermelinda De La Torre. “This activity is an opportunity for our wish children to feel good about themselves and not have to think about what they are battling medically. It’s a chance to enjoy just being a kid. We so appreciate the generosity and support by the Golden State Warriors.”
Coverage of the Make-A-Wish Holiday Party will air on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area’s SportsNet Central later that evening at 10:30 p.m. and midnight and online at www.CSNBayArea.com.
