Rosies X Golden State Warriors

On March 26, 2024, Rosie Jeanne Gibson was honored as a Community Impact Warrior at Chase Stadium during a Warriors game. It was a wonderful experience to attend the game and see Jeanne honored on the floor during half-time. The crowd response was the loudest they’ve ever had for an Impact Warrior! 

Ernestine Wean & Willa Mae Thomas also attended the game with students from Rosie’s Service Corps, along with Executive Director Sarah Pritchard, Rosie Wrangler Tammy Brumley, RSC Program Staffer Celeste Rios and Pam Kruse-Buckingham, Development Associate.

Jeanne & Tammy were seated in a VIP box for the game, and met some famous people while they were there! 

After the game, (which the Warriors Won - the Rosies were their good luck charm!), we ended up out at Thrive City, the wonderful outdoor space at Chase Center. Jeanne & Ernestine held court there for about 25 minutes, greeting fans and posing for pictures. 

It was a magical night!

Many thanks to Jake Rassam, Claudia Leist and the entire Warriors Community Engagement Team for an amazing night and for coming to hear Jeanne Gibson & Marian Sousa speak on Friday April 26 at the Visitor’s Center!

There is certainly more to come with our friends at Chase Stadium/Golden State Warriors/Golden State Valkyries - please stay tuned!
