In the spirit of celebrating 135 years of transformational work in the Bay Area, we formally invite you to the first-ever Lincoln Champions Luncheon! Spend a thrilling morning with Kristi Yamaguchi, Marshawn Lynch, and Dr. Sandra R. Hernández as they join us in advocating for children’s futures! Since 1883, Lincoln has provided quality school and home services, driven policy in favor of children’s welfare, and expanded resources so Bay Area families have the best possible outcomes for success.

Join us as we honor 3 incredible individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to education, family strengthening, and well-bring work in our communities, mirroring Lincoln’s own work. Join them and hear about the impacts they’ve made in the community:
