Amidst the glitz and glamour of Super Bowl weekend, a remarkable event captured the attention of sports enthusiasts and advocates alike: the Women Raise the Game brunch. This exclusive gathering, held against the backdrop of one of the most anticipated weekends in sports, brought together a diverse array of women who are not only pushing forward the boundaries of athleticism but also shaping the landscape of leadership in the industry.

 

Hosted by Tish Gualindo of The 360 Agency, the Women Raise the Game brunch served as a powerful platform to honor and celebrate the achievements of women who are making significant strides in the world of athletics. From athletes and coaches to executives and advocates, the event brought together a dynamic mix of trailblazers who are breaking barriers and inspiring change.

 

Among the distinguished honorees at the brunch was Holly Peete Robinson, a revered figure whose contributions to sports and philanthropy have left an indelible mark on the industry. As an accomplished actress, author, and advocate, Robinson’s unwavering commitment to Autism after the diagnosis of her son, earned her the “philanthropist of the year” award. She’s been dedicated to making an impact both on and off the field for years.

 

In addition to Robinson, the brunch also celebrated the achievements of Sammy Schuster, Zaileen Janmohamed, President & CEO of the Bay Area Host Committee who received the Woman of the Year Award , and other influential figures whose passion and dedication have propelled them to the forefront of the sports world. From groundbreaking performances on the field from their sons or partners; to visionary leadership behind the scenes, each honoree exemplifies the spirit of excellence and resilience that defines women in sports today.

 

Super Bowl Champion, JuJu Schuster delivered a tear jerking introduction about his Mother Sammy Schuster who raised seven kids in her pursuit of pushing him to greatness, and ultimately the NFL. Sammy Schuster received “Visionary of the year” award and teary eyed spoke on her journey to becoming her son’s manager out of protection with no direction or guidance she accomplished her goal.

 

Throughout the event, guests were treated to inspiring speeches, and intimate networking opportunities designed to foster connections and empower women to reach their full potential. From discussions on leadership and mentorship to insights into navigating the challenges of the industry, the brunch provided a platform for meaningful dialogue and collaboration among attendees.
