Our events are fun, sophisticated, and inspiring! Whether we're organizing a rubber ducky race, mixing craft cocktails, or listening to youth talk about their life-changing internship experiences, it's all one big party to support foster youth! Read on to learn more about our events. 

Pivotal Ducky Derby

Ducky Derby 

Our first-ever virtual event raised $25,000 for coaching and scholarships. For just $100, participants registered a rubber ducky, gave it a funny name, and tuned in to hear San Jose's very own Randy Hahn give a play-by-play commentary as over 250 ducks paddled against each other in a 25-yard pool dash. Our 2020 winner, Lucky Duck Leo, won four tickets to a San Jose Sharks game!

Dream Makers

Each year we honor our Dream Makers, people whose incredibly generous donations allow us to keep fulfilling our mission. At this incredibly special luncheon, our youth take the stage to share their experiences and gratitude for the people whose contributions make their lives brighter. 


Internship Showcase

When our employers hire one of our summer interns, they do more than provide a job. They open up a world of new possibilities. They spark their interest in future careers and give our youth their first real experience in the workplace. Our Internship Showcase features a moderated discussion that includes supervisors and interns who openly share their experiences with attendees.
