OC United Way Philanthropy Fund Breakfast with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

05.18.20

Orange County United Way will host its annual Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast virtually on May 20, from 9 – 9:45 a.m., with a live Q&A with NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Now more than ever, vital funds are needed to support Orange County families and children facing poverty and housing instability in challenged neighborhoods. It is essential that the programs continue helping the most vulnerable in the community in the wake of COVID-19.

The virtual breakfast is free to attend.

The format for this year’s breakfast will be live-streamed virtually, due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis.

As the event’s celebrity guest, Abdul-Jabbar will participate in a live Q&A. Abdul-Jabbar – a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.  Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, a six-time NBA champion and the league’s only six-time MVP.

Currently, Abdul-Jabbar serves as the chairman of his Skyhook Foundation and brings educational STEM opportunities to underserved communities through innovative outdoor environmental learning. 

This year’s breakfast will highlight the needs stemming from the pandemic, and how United Way's Impact Hub is helping to ensure local families and children can continue to thrive.

Interested parties can register for the event live stream and submit questions to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar here.  If you are not able to join for the event, you can still support Orange County United Way’s life-changing initiatives and programs, and make a donation
