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.
"A Taste 4 SPORTS"
SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes would normally be hosting our 14th annual “A Taste 4 SPORTS” gala fundraiser at the Balboa Park Club in beautiful Balboa Park for 350-400 guests. However, because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, S4EA cannot hold an indoor fundraising event with several hundred guests. Instead, S4EA is having a Drive-Thru “A Taste 4 SPORTS” event for S4EA members on Thursday, June 17th from 5-8pm at S4EA/North Shores (9575 Aero Drive, San Diego 92123). Guests will drive-thru to sample tasty offerings from various restaurants & caterers in to-go containers, listen to great music, meet celebrities including NBA basketball Hall of Fame player Bill Walton, view Classic Cars from 'Mad' Mike, participate in the raffle, and more. From June 1-16, we will also have an online auction with great getaways, sports memorabilia, sports, antiques & art, health & fitness, etc. Because “A Taste 4 SPORTS” is our largest fundraiser, S4EA needs your support now more than ever, so that S4EA can provide the same high level programming once the Pandemic is over.
Proceeds benefit S4EA
The proceeds from the Drive-Thru "A Taste 4 SPORTS" Fundraising Event will benefit SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes — a non profit sports program serving 1,400 athletes with disabilities ages 5 through adult in over 20 sports during 4 sports seasons.
Sponsorship opportunities available at following levels:

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 17 years the Law Enforcement Challenge -“Guacamole Bowl” has raised over $160,000 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.
2021 Guacamole Bowl
In light of the Pandemic, and keeping with tradition, this year’s event has gone mobile. The 2021 Law Enforcement Challenge Guacamole Bowl on Wheels is a drive-thru event featuring guacamole making kits. Each kit or box includes everything needed to make your own award winning guacamole from the comfort of your own home. Items in each box includes avocados, tomatoes, lemons, onions, cilantro, jalapenos, and a bag of Mission tortilla chips. And, as an added bonus, a Guacamole Recipe Book which includes many past Guacamole Bowl champions.
The Guacamole Bowl On Wheels, held on Saturday, March 6, 2021 from 10am-2pm by the Balboa Park Club, was a great success. 210 vehicles picked-up a Guacamole Making Kit and Guacamole Recipe Book for a $25 donation. S4EA received over $8,000 in donations. Thank you to Henry Avocado Corp. for donating the avocados, Mission Foods for donating the chips, and to everyone who participated in the Guacamole Bowl On Wheels.
$25 is requested for each guacamole kit. Please click the donate button if you would like to make a donation.
