Four Lasallian schools in the District of San Francisco participated in a unique volleyball tournament that combined community service with competition. The inaugural Serve It Up: Founders Classic was held September 27-28 at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory in San Francisco, CA.
Other schools that participated were Christian Brothers High School in Sacramento, CA, Saint Mary’s College High School in Berkeley, CA, and La Salle Catholic College Preparatory in Milwaukie, OR.
The players from each team mixed into groups on Friday afternoon and performed community service at various nonprofits in San Francisco. The teams then met on the court Saturday to play in a round robin tournament. More than 70 players, coaches, and moderators from the four teams in two states collaborated to work on seven service projects. Proceeds from the tournament ticket and t-shirt sales were donated to two charities.
