There is no denying the Warriors are HOT — and the wins keep coming as the team prepares to become BAYCAT’s neighbor to Bayview Hunters Point! The sports team is already making a full-court press to show their commitment to the community.
BAYCAT was invited to tell the stories of 4 community based organizations as part of the team’s Taste of the Warriors event, a food and wine festival exclusively for their Season Ticket Holders. The annual event reached out to BVHP and mission-based nonprofits La Cocina, Old Skool Cafe, Young Community Developers, and BAYCAT to cater, staff, and film the event respectively. (The video will premiere at our Open House this Thursday— join us to see a Taste of the Warriors.)
That isn’t the only way the Warriors are reaching out to our community.
Two BAYCAT youth were part of an exclusive group of 6 young people invited to interview Warriors players Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green as part of the team’s Youth Media Day. Youth media producers Nailah Reynolds, age 11, and James Parker Pennington, age 13, interviewed the players, asking about overcoming obstacles, and if they always knew they’d make it to the NBA.
The experience was a great one for Nailah, who got to practice her interview technique on Draymond Green. But her favorite part was being close to her favorite player, who was practicing on the court while the youth were conducting the interviews.
“Most of my pictures are of Stephen Curry,” she said with a laugh.
