Team Walker will honor Westfield resident Robert Sloan at its Annual “Evening of Dreams” benefit dinner on Thursday, October 3, 2013 at Mayfair Farms. Team Walker is a community-based non-profit organization founded by former Seton Hall University basketball star Jerry Walker that helps youngsters in Jersey City with academics and life skills.
Team Walker’s Evening of Dreams annually recognizes outstanding service. At this year’s event, Sloan will be honored with the Extraordinary Service Award. Robert holds an MBA in finance from Seton Hall and currently leads AT&T’s Public Safety Solution Offer.
Jerry Walker, CEO, has valued Robert Sloan as a part of the organization for many years. “Robert has gone above and beyond for Team Walker,” explained Jerry. “His commitment has proven to be very valuable to the organization and Bob has a huge heart. Bob is dedicated to our kids and has a keen knowledge of what is going to be very important to them to be successful.”
Sloan has special interest in the Team Walker’s academic programs and the focus on math and science. “There is no more important cause than helping provide children with the tools and opportunity they deserve to succeed in life – especially in areas where children have little,” said Sloan. “The mission and goal of Team Walker – providing opportunity through education and athletic programs it sponsors – delivers opportunity for children. I am proud and honored to be a part of that mission!”
Along with Sloan, ESPN broadcast Bob Ley will also be honored at the event. Ley will receive the “Pop” Curry Award for his contributions to Team Walker.For more information on tickets to the Team Walker Evening of Dreams dinner, or how to make a donation, please log onto www.TeamWalker.org or contact Ed Schwartz at (201) 939-8601.
