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.


2021 Drive-Thru  

"A Taste 4 SPORTS"

Fundraising Event


Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes could not hold an indoor event with several hundred people. Instead, S4EA held a Drive-Thru “A Taste 4 SPORTS” event for S4EA members on Thursday, June 17th from 5-8pm at S4EA/North Shores. About 190 people in 80 cars tasted delicious food & drink provided by 8 restaurants and caterers. Guests viewed 25 classic cars coordinated by 'Mad' Mike & Hotrod Holly. NBA Hall of Fame basketball player Bill Walton chatted with the guests. The 'Los Tecolotes' band performed on stage, wandering minstrel Joe Castro played his guitar & Steph Johnson sang with S4EA athlete Isaac on the 200" big screen TV. Guests participated in the raffle & auction.


The Drive-Thru Taste was a great success with nearly $35,000 raised for S4EA.​ Thank you to everyone who participated.

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.

Guacamole Bowl

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 

On Wheels

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.
