The Impact Award, conferred by the Golden State Warriors Foundation, is a prestigious symbol of commitment to community empowerment and positive change. This accolade is reserved for individuals who have demonstrated remarkable contributions to their communities, showcasing a spirit of service, innovation, and impactful leadership.
On the night of November 18, 2023, GLIDE celebrated a significant moment as Lanie Igtanloc, the Director of the Family Youth Childcare Center (FYCC), was honored with this distinguished award. The recognition was a testament to her leadership, dedication, and the tangible impact she has made in the community through the FYCC program.
Coinciding with Filipino American Heritage Night, the award ceremony unfolded during halftime at a Golden State Warriors game. Lanie, accompanied by our President and CEO, Dr. Gina Fromer, stepped onto the court amidst the vibrant energy of the game’s halftime. This moment was both a celebration of her achievements and a reflection of her cultural heritage. Lanie shares a poignant message reflecting on this honor: “Let us champion the values that make us strong.
Our partnership with the Warriors Foundation is crucial in amplifying the positive changes we strive to achieve in our communities. Together, we are committed to building a future where every individual has the opportunity to thrive, supported by the pillars of education, inclusivity, and empowerment.
Lanie Igtanloc’s receipt of the Impact Award on a night celebrating her cultural heritage and profound impact on the community is a beacon of inspiration for us all at GLIDE. It reaffirms our resolve to continue our mission, driven by leaders like Lanie and supported by partnerships that share our vision for a better, more inclusive world.
