Community Center

To Host 1st Annual Slam & Jam

Back-To-School Event




The Sonny Melendrez Community Center is proud to host the 1st Annual Slam & Jam 3 on 3 basketball competition on Saturday, August 14th from 11am to 5pm.


The event is presented by The City of San Antonio (District 6&7), the San Antonio Spurs, and the San Antonio Youth Summit and will serve hundreds of at-risk and disadvantaged students from San Antonio's West Side. From dozens of food booths, to demonstrations by SAPD, SAFD, and SWAT Team members, to information booths urging kids to get a full education, countless volunteers have worked tirelessly to make this back-to-school bash a major success.


Joining me as hosts will be San Antonio Spurs star, George Hill and Janie Lopez the President and CEO of Y.E.L.L. (Youth Engaging in Leadership and Learning).  The event will be broadcast live on The Beat 98.5 and Fox News and will feature KENS 5's Paul Mireles as celebrity MC.


If you would like to volunteer your time or would like to make a donation, please call SMCC director, Kyndal Topperwein at 210-707-0303.


Families wishing to bring students can call SMCC director, Alex Charles at 210-434-0277


Congratulations and my heartfelt thanks to all who have unselfishly given of their time, energy and resources for this magnificent event!
