Menlo Park's JobTrain raises nearly $365,000 at 'Breakfast of Champions'

 

"Nothing worth having and achieving comes easy," Renel Brooks-Moon, a public address announcer for the San Francisco Giants, told the audience at the Santa Clara Convention Center on June 3 as she received the Role Model Award at JobTrain's 32nd annual Breakfast of Champions fundraiser.

The event raised almost $365,000 for JobTrain, a Menlo Park-based nonprofit that provides vocational training for adults and youth, according to Neha Gupta, a JobTrain spokesperson.

Ms. Brooks-Moon said her father had served on the board of directors in JobTrain's early days and her mother had taught typing classes there.

Facebook and Google sponsored the event, and Facebook CFO David Wehner also spoke.
