SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The Santa Clara University athletic department will conduct its third annual Get In The Game women's sports luncheon Thursday, May 5 on the main playing floor of the Leavey Center.
The event, which is being underwritten by a donation from Comerica Bank, begins with an 11:30 a.m. reception, followed by lunch and a program that includes former Bronco All-Americans Brandi Chastain and Leslie Osborne beginning at noon. Contact Donna Bolio at 408/554-5344 to RSVP.
Started in 2003, this fundraising luncheon is an opportunity for women to ensure the continued success of Santa Clara's ten female sports teams by contributing to Santa Clara Athletics. SCU women who are alumni, parents or friends, have a chance to come together to celebrate and support women's athletics.
Chastain, a former Bronco All-American, member of the U.S. National Women's Soccer Team and SCU Athletic Hall of Famer, will be the featured speaker at the luncheon. She will speak about her career success as well as reflect on her time at SCU. Current Bronco student athletes will also speak about their experience at SCU and athletic director Dan Coonan will address the importance of women's athletics.
