Warriors / Oakland
To honor her contributions to the Alameda County community, Golden State Warriors Vice President of Public Affairs, Community Relations and Event Management Gail Hunter will be inducted into the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame, the team announced today. Hunter receives the recognition in the sports and athletics category for her work not only with the Warriors organization overseeing the Club’s Community Relations and Public Affairs efforts, but also her efforts personally with the local community. Hunter will join 11 other women chosen from an extraordinary group of 80 nominees for induction into the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame at its 23rd Anniversary and Award Ceremony luncheon on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Oakland.
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by Alameda County and be in the company of such amazing women,” said Hunter. “It is important for me to not only give back to the community in which I live, but to also be a positive role model for young women in the Bay Area.”
Through her role with the Warriors organization, Hunter sits on the Board of Directors for the Warriors Community Foundation which is dedicated to making a significant and lasting impact on the lives of underserved youth in the San Francisco Bay Area. Hunter’s personal community efforts also include serving on a variety of additional boards including the Board of Governors and Development Committee for Boys and Girls Clubs of San Francisco, the Board of the Embarcadero YMCA, and Board of Trustees for the First Tee of the East Bay. In addition, Hunter is an active member of Women In Sports & Events (WISE) and was named the 2012 WISE Women of the Year Award for her leadership and continued influential voice for women in the sports and event industry.
