Raise money for S4EA at fun events
Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, some of the 2021 S4EA Fundraisers may be virtual or on-line. 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 by the summer of 2021.
Alternative Fundraiser to "A Taste 4 SPORTS"
The month of May with door prize drawing on Thursday, May 28, 2020
In the Comfort and Safety of your Home
SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes would normally be hosting our 13th annual “A Taste 4 SPORTS” gala fundraiser on Thursday, May 28th from 6:00 - 9:00pm at the Balboa Park Club in beautiful Balboa Park for 350-400 guests. However, because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, S4EA cannot hold a fundraising event with several hundred guests. Therefore, S4EA is having an Alternative Fundraiser to “A Taste 4 SPORTS”. Because “A Taste 4 SPORTS” is our largest fundraiser, S4EA needs your support now more than ever for this Alternative Fundraiser by making a straight donation so that S4EA can provide the same high level programming once the Pandemic is over.

When: Wed, August 7, 2019, 1-8pm

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.

During November we had interactive postings on Facebook.
Participated in Facebook Live.
