On Saturday, August 3rd, the African American Community Service Agency (AACSA) in partnership with the Antioch Baptist Church presented the block party at 6th and Julian Street in San Jose. The church celebrated 125 years this year. The event had bounce houses, face painting, community resources, food, a DJ and more. Mayor Liccardo stopped by to tour the church and meet with the community members.
The First Tee of Silicon Valley had a booth and games set up for attendees to try out golf. We had volunteers Trevor, Krisha, Twish and Linette on hand to show folks how to hold the clubs and play the games. They passed out a choice of TFTSV-branded fanny or back packs to the high score getters of the day.
“Community events such as this are wonderful ways to introduce folks to the game of golf while supporting our community.” Said Julie Donnellan, Operations Coordinator.
