Cal Poly Athletics Helps Local Youth Through Hometown Heroes Program

Cal Poly Athletics Helps Local Youth Through Hometown Heroes Program

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -– Cal Poly Athletics is proud to announce the continued success of its Hometown Heroes program, designed to provide local disadvantaged youth in San Luis Obispo County free entrance to Cal Poly athletic events.

In its first year, the program has provided men's basketball tickets to dozens of children from different youth programs, including the San Luis Obispo YMCA and San Luis Obispo Big Brothers Big Sisters. Over 70 youth were able to attend Cal Poly football games this year.

Children from the San Luis Obispo YMCA were able to get autographs from the basketball team, and even participate in promotions held during halftime and timeouts.

The program will continue for the remainder of the basketball season and into the spring sports season. Several youth groups are already scheduled for both men's and women's games.

This is Hometown Heroes' first year as an official program of Cal Poly Athletics. The program is part of Cal Poly's mission to place value on civic engagement and social responsibility.

If you run a program serving San Luis Obispo County youth and would like to request tickets to a Cal Poly athletic event, email Brandon Jones at bjones14@calpoly.edu.
