Sinclair Men's Basketball Assists with Generation Dayton Day

Members of the Sinclair Men’s Basketball team joined forces with 100+ young professionals to give back to Dayton.

As unbelievable as it sounds, the rain held off long enough Friday afternoon for members of the Sinclair College Men’s Basketball team to spend four hours working on improvement projects throughout the Gem City. Dayton Mayor Gary Leitzell spent some time with a few members of the Tartan Pride before they headed out to their locations.

An estimated 150 young professionals took to the streets of Dayton on Friday, May 4, 2012, to "Get Out, Give Back Dayton!" Known as Generation Dayton Day, volunteers check in at a central location for lunch before embarking on assigned volunteer missions between 1 and 5 p.m.

Generation Dayton was founded in May 2006. It is a diverse organization of talented young professionals who live and work in the Dayton region to meet, network, learn, grow and establish themselves as integral components in the future success of the Dayton region. They strive to be the most all-inclusive and well-respected young professionals' organization in the Dayton region, dedicated to motivating all members to reach their full potential.
