Formulated through the diligent organization of KC Adams, and with a little help from a group of friends, Anchorpoint Christian High – 2220 Pacheco Pass Highway – will host Unity Day on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. as part of Black History Month and a chance to, “pay it forward.”
“It’s something that I have wanted to do for awhile,” Adams said. “It’s going to be really good to get everybody together and give back.”
The list of activities and entertainment options is lengthy. First off, for kids elementary-school and middle-school aged, there will be games, jump houses, a punt, pass and kick challenge, 3-on-3 basketball tournament and many other family activities.
Musical guests include Robert Butler of cathedral of Faith, saxophonist Luis Lendz and karaoke by DJ JR.
The day will also be used to teach and encourage as Pastor Malcolm MacPhail (New Hope Community Church), Pastor Gerald Harris (Bethany Church), Sergio Montenegro (Monterey County School District), Bob Fitch (Martin Luther King’s former personal photographer), Sondra Cole (Anchorpoint Christian) and Peter Arellano (Gilroy Councilman), are all scheduled to speak.
Adams and his close friend Michelle Travlos, who suffers from Sickle Cell Anemia, also organized a Red Cross blood drive to raise awareness of the disease and invite visitors of Unity Day to donate. Register to donate blood at redcrossblood.org and use the sponsor code: anchorpoint. Donations will be taken from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
