-- Rancho Santa Fe, CA----The second annual fundraising event, “Jammin Under the Stars” was held at the private estate of Sean and Maria Barry in Rancho Santa Fe on Friday, July 15, 2011, to benefit the Jammer Family Foundation. The event, which raised $80,000, was organized by San Diego Charger Quentin Jammer and his wife Alicia, along with Maria Barry, Rob Powell, Jolane Crawford, Ginger Levy and Jennifer Enright. Jeffery Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille provided catering and the evening’s festivities included silent and live auctions, opportunity drawings, entertainment and dancing. Guests mingled with members of the San Diego Chargers football team including Darren Sproles, Antoine Cason, Mike Tolbert, Larry English, Darren Bennett (retired) and Darren Carrington (retired and event Emcee) in support of programs that empower the students of San Pasqual Academy, the first national residential education campus for foster teens. Event sponsors included: Le Dimora; Symbolic Motors; Mutual of Omaha; Schubach Aviation; Extreme Fun; Riviera Magazine; Milton’s Delicatessen;
Jimmy Choo; Hudson Printing; Coast Highway Photography and Delicias.
The event proceeds will directly impact San Pasqual Academy through the Jammer Family Foundation. According to Alicia Jammer, “We’re very pleased that we met our fundraising goal; we had a record number of guests attend in support of our mission and the live auction was particularly competitive this year. We’re especially grateful to our event sponsors and to Quentin’s teammates for their participation.”
The Jammers were introduced to the foster teens of San Pasqual Academy several years ago and have been instrumental in providing academic scholarships, Thanksgiving and Christmas programs, group outings to Charger games, one-on-one mentoring in addition to the construction of a home football field.
Quentin and his wife Alicia devote much of their time and talent to their nonprofit organization. The Jammer Family Foundation philosophy embraces the belief that all children should be given equal opportunity to excel in athletics as well as academics, regardless of their resources. Their ultimate goal is to establish a solid support system to develop young leaders that will sustain a prosperous community. The Jammer Family Foundation engages in a wide variety of worthy causes in the San Diego community, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), United Way, and the Boys and Girls Clubs.
