GRANELLO BAKERY ANNUAL LEADERSHIP RETREAT Sponsored by Laurie Steed
This December the Foundation once again brought alumni, speakers, donors and youth together for a leadership retreat from December 18th to the 23rd at The Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa. Here they evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, debate, discuss their lives and set out a vision for an improved future. The way these children open up, share, inspire and grow together is beyond words. Lives are inspired and changed. Our sponsors and supporters make much of this possible. In addition to Granello Bakery we want to thank Bob and Winnie Schulman and Ana and Sean Wolfington for sponsoring the leadership retreat.
This year the children were inspired to share their gratitude in a colorful and diverse way to demonstrate how much our key supporters mean to their varied lives. The foundation is proud to have hundreds of youth representing so many different walks of life, cultures and languages and this holiday greeting speaks to our diversity and unity.
The Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation inspires children through mentoring, leadership development, tennis and education. To date the foundation has helped 100's of at risk youth get off the streets, into the classroom, onto the tennis court and into college scholarships. The foundation has proven to be effective with their programming which has helped 83 children to earn academic and athletic scholarships to colleges like Stanford, Princeton, Georgetown University, Harvard, Wharton School of Business, University of Penn, Vanderbilt, The Citadel, Naval Academy, Villanova, UNLV, BYU and many others. This video was created by a foundation youth as part of their "Find your passion" work prep program. The video also highlights the foundations diversity and the children’s appreciation.
The foundation was created and thrives after ten years thanks to countless supporters, including entertainment legend Tony Bennett, tennis icon Mike Agassi, the worlds best doubles team ever Bob and Mike Bryan and their foundation, Wayne Bryan, The Wolfington Family Foundation, Sean and Anna Wolfington, The National Tennis Foundation, Windsong Trust, Neal and Nicole Tomlinson, Winnie and Bob Schulman, Jeff and Rashae Taylor, Laurie Steed, Tiffany Alvord, MOSAIC, Jason Strauss, Diane and Gerry Wendel, Harry and Carol Wolfington Family, Lily Chu, Clint and Kelly Holmes and many others.
