RANCHO SANTA FE — The fundraising event Jammin Under the Stars was held at the home of Ginger and David Levy June 4, to benefit the Jammer Family Foundation. The event was organized by San Diego Charger Quentin Jammer and his wife Alicia with Maria Barry, Jolane Crawford and Ginger Levy.
Jeffery Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille provided catering and the evening’s festivities included silent and live auctions and an opportunity drawing. Guests mingled with members of the San Diego Chargers football team and the Charger cheerleaders in support of programs that empower San Pasqual Academy, the first national residential education campus for foster teens.
The event proceeds will directly impact San Pasqual Academy through the Jammer Family Foundation. “Quentin and I are deeply grateful for everyone who participated in this event — their contributions will enable us to advance the mission of our foundation and support programs that aid disadvantaged youth,” Alicia Jammer said.
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 the same 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 San Pasqual Academy, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, United Way and the Boys and Girls Clubs.
