HAMILTON: Partnering with Champion Charities for a Night at the Theater!

On March 12, the BASIC Fund celebrated A Night at the Theater with Champion Charities. Champion Charities, a non profit led by Harris Barton and Ronnie Lott, selected the BASIC Fund, UCSF Medical Center and Teach for America to benefit from their sold out private performance of the award-winning musical HAMILTON.  Funds from the evening were distributed to the three organizations, and The BASIC Fund received a grant of $400,000 from the performance- which will help take 67 children off of our wait-list and put them in school this fall!  The evening began with a reception at City Hall and ended with an incredible performance of the highly acclaimed musical.  There were even celebrity attendees like Joe Montana, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant in the audience!  The BASIC Fund is incredibly grateful to Harris Barton and Champion Charities for selecting us as a partner for this incredible event, and proud of our impact in helping more children access a school of their choice this fall. The Hamilton event marks the second Night at the Theater partnership with The BASIC Fund and Champion Charities, the first taking place in December 2016 for a production of THE LION KING.
