Annual Jenny Lin Concert

Jenny Lin Foundation Concert

This annual event is a tribute to Jenny’s love of music. Hundreds of students musicians, volunteers, and community spectators gather
every summer to enjoy this annual event. The concert is the finale in a four week long music camp that is organized by Foundation volunteers and student directors. These teens not only improve their music skills but also learn the importance of leadership and community service while spending the summer with their friends.

Annual Car Wash

Jenny Lin Foundation - Car Wash

Local teens and Foundation volunteers gather each summer to hold a fundraising carwash. In addition to raising funds to support Foundation activities, the event provides an opportunity to educate the public about the Foundation’s mission. In addition, it is a great day out in the California summer sun for everybody!

Friendship Court Dedication

Friendship Court - Jenny Lin Foundation

Inspired by Jenny’s love for her friends, school and music, family members and volunteers began the Friendship Court project to help beautify the Canyon Middle School campus where Jenny was a student. The purpose of this project was to not only beautify the school but to also provide students a safe, well-lit outdoor area to gather for social events or wait for parents after school. The project was a labor of love for Jenny’s family, volunteers, supporters and the Castro Valley School District for over 2 years and culminated in a dedication ceremony on May 26, 2001.
