SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes held the 13th annual Law Enforcement vs. Realtors Challenge “Guacamole Bowl” fundraiser on Saturday, February 20th from 10:00am until 2:00pm at the Balboa Park Club (2150 Pan American Road West, San Diego 92101). The “Guacamole Bowl” is a premier competition designed to determine, “Who makes the best Guacamole?”

Proceeds from the 13th Annual Guacamole Bowl will benefit SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes







Retired San Diego Police Officer Matt Weathersby came up with this unique fundraising idea as a way of supporting local charities.  Last year’s charity is SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes.  Over the thirteen years, the Guacamole Bowl, co-sponsored by San Diego Park & Recreation-Therapeutic Recreation Services, has raised over $126,000 to support local programs for athletes with developmental disabilities.

According to Weathersby, over 2,000 pounds of fresh avocados donated by Calavo Growers, Inc. were used by the various teams along with lots of onions, tomatoes, cilantro and jalapenos, provided by Jordano’s, to the competing teams.  Matt added, “If you like good guacamole, and lots of it, then Balboa Park is the place to be”.
