Silver & Black Give Back Team Up Challenge
October 21, 2015 - 9:00am

Brauchle is a semifinalist in the 2015-2016 Silver & Black Give Back Team Up Challenge. We received $2,500 to begin a service-learning project. Eighteen semifinalists were selected in San Antonio based on proposals submitted for projects to improve their communities. The semifinalists were announced last Friday at the AT&T Center with help from Spurs player Boris Diaw, the Silver Dancers, Rampage Ice Girls, and the Coyote and T-Bone mascots. In April, five groups will be selected as Champions based on their work within the community and each group will be presented with a check for $20,000 to continue their service-learning projects. Wish us luck!
