Back to School Bash Recap


August 4th was an incredible day at the Dream Center in the heart of Los Angeles. The Dream Center has been a part of Kershaw's Challenge for many seasons and we consider them part of our family. The Back to School Bash has become a staple event for children getting ready for a new school year. Kershaw's Challenge was honored to once again sponsor the event!



It was a warm day in LA--the heat rising with each passing hour. And yet that didn't deter the crowds! Children and families lined up around the Dream Center in anticipation of the festivities. What an awesome morning!



When things kicked off, children came through an entry of balloons to receive their backpacks--filled with everything needed for a new school year! Clayton and Ellen were joined by teammate Justin Turner and his wife Kourtney. It was pretty sweet to watch all of the interactions!



With brand new backpacks in tow, the children and families enjoyed a full morning of fun: bounce houses, face paintings, snacks, rides and games. What a way to celebrate a new school year!


The Back to School Bash is an amazing way for Kershaw's Challenge to tangibly love on the families in LA. We are deeply grateful for the Dream Center--they play an active roll in blessings these families day by day. 



This celebration and tradition would not be possible without the incredible support of the LA Dodgers Foundation--our signature partner! What a joy to love our city side by side!



And thank YOU, friends of KC! The Back to School Bash was a sweet event thanks to your dedication to our efforts. Now go get 'em students! Strap on those sweet new back packs and go be a light of joy and hope in your schools!
