Founder of the Good Tidings Foundation, Larry Harper spoke about the partnership with the Warriors and how proud he is of the work theyve done together in the community.
Warriors President Robert Rowell agreed with Harper's sentiments, noting how the Warriors and the Good Tidings Foundation have teamed up on 40 Bay Area court refurbishments in the past 17 years.
Alameda Mayor Marie Gilmore surprised everyone by proclaiming Wednesday, April 27, 2011 as Joe Lacob Day in the City of Alameda.
Joe Lacob was truly humbled by the honor and he encouraged the students to take advantage of the court to turn themselves into well rounded individuals.
The kids were excited about their new basketball court, and an appearance from Franco Finn and the Warrior Girls did nothing but heighten that enthusiasm.
With assistance from Bank of America and the Good Tidings Foundation, Joe Lacob and the Warriors were able to turn something like this ...
... and turn it into this lovely new facility with a new NBA-size playing surface and brand new backboards and rims.
The kids loved their new court ...
... and showed their appreciation to Lacob with a special gift.
After the ceremoy, it was time to officially break the court in with a game.
Lacob got things started by tossing up the ceremonial first tip.
As the game was going on, the Warrior Girls led a group of students in a dance clinic.
After the program, everyone in attendance enjoyed a lunch courtesy of Lark Creek before receiving special Warriors goodies and a scoop of ice cream from Fentons Creamery.
A huge thank you goes out to Bank of America for providing a grant to make this project possible.
The Warriors also thank the Good Tidings Foundation for its continued support in the team's community endeavors.
Joe Lacob Court will serve Haight Elementary students for many years to come.
Again, the Wariors thank everyone involved in making this dream baketball court a reality.
