Raise money for S4EA at fun events
Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, some of the 2021 S4EA Fundraisers may be virtual, on-line, or drive-thru. S4EA hopes that the situation will have changed once enough people get the vaccine that we will be able to have in person fundraisers again in 2022.

S4EA Golf Classic
The S4EA Golf Classic brings together golf enthusiasts, business elite, and community leaders, all teaming up to support SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes. The 2019 S4EA Golf Classic was as follows:
When: Wed, August 7, 2019, 1-8pm
Where: Riverwalk Golf Club
S4EA Virtual Golf Classic
S4EA would normally be hosting our 2nd annual S4EA Golf Classic gala fundraiser in the fall of 2020 at the Riverwalk Golf Club from 1-8pm for 100-150 golfers. However, because of COVID-19, S4EA cannot hold our S4EA Golf Classic at the Riverwalk Golf Club with over 100 golfers. Therefore, S4EA had a S4EA Virtual Golf Classic in November, culminating on Fri, November 20, 2020 with nearly $8,000 raised for S4EA.
Virtual Golf Classic Highlights
The Ball Drop happened again this year with Marie Alvarez the winner receiving $500 cash.
Since no actual golf tournament at Riverwalk Golf Course, we offered a Golf Challenge instead.
During November we had interactive postings on Facebook.
Participated in Facebook Live.

Over the last 19 years the Law Enforcement Challenge -“Guacamole Bowl” has raised over $175,000 of needed operating funds for SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes. During this time, some 20,000 San Diegans have enjoyed sampling guacamole made by nearly 300 competitive teams.
20th Anniv. Guacamole Bowl
Save the Date - Feb 25, 2023
The Guacamole Bowl will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary this coming year. Come join in on the celebration on February 25, 2023 from 10am-2pm at the Balboa Park Club. Taste the Guacamole from champions from the past 20 years.
2022 Guacamole Bowl Results
The 19th Annual Law Enforcement Challenge "Guacamole Bowl" held Saturday, February 26, 2022 from 10am-2pm outside at the Recital Hall Lawn by the Balboa Park Club was a great success. Because of the Pandemic, this year’s event was a hybrid event with teams once again making the guacamole in the Balboa Park Club, but the member guests walked up to pick up the samples made by the various teams outside at the Recital Hall Lawn. The Guacamole Bowl attracted over 400 guests who tasted guacamole from 8 teams & helped determine who makes the best guacamole. The Guacamole Bowl made over $7,000 to benefit S4EA.
The winning teams are as follows:
1st: #Holy Guacamole
3rd: Si Si Si Persea Avocatier
Congratulations to the #Holy Guacamole team who won the coveted "Guacamole Bowl" Trophy as the best overall team.
S4EA would like to thank Henry's Avocado Corp. for providing the avocados, Mission Foods for providing the chips, and all of the event sponsors.
