San Antonio is focused on our San Antonio Spurs because they are winners and the NBA finals will be another opportunity to showcase our favorite team. The attention to our city brings along positive economic factors, such as tickets sales and revenue for local businesses.
In addition to the tremendous effort that the Spurs team exerts on the basketball court, they are also giving their best efforts to help the San Antonio community.
The Silver & Black Give Back is a non-profit arm of the Spurs network that includes the Rampage, the Stars and the Austin Toros. Their mission is to "....creatively engage young people to enrich their communities." This group celebrated its 25th year anniversary in October 2012 .
Some of their focus is on offering youth sports programs such as Team Up Challenge and Spurs Youth Basketball League. Local students have participated in service projects to benefit local charities such as the food bank and respite care. Created in 1988 it was originally known as the Spurs Foundation.
To learn more and get involved as a volunteer or make a donation, see the link for Silver & Black Volunteers. Some of the events during the year are fund raisers such as "Tux & Tennies" and "Silver & Black Shoot Out". Just another reason to be proud of our San Antonio Spurs.
