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
Cost: $150

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.

  • The Ball Drop, Videos, and the Program were shown on Nov 20th at 6pm on the S4EA Website and Facebook

  • 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.


For more information, please call S4EA at 858-565-7432.
