About

SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes is holding the 15th annual Law Enforcement vs. Kiwanis Challenge "Guacamole Bowl" fundraiser on Saturday, February 24th from 10:00am until 2:00pm at the Balboa Park Club (2144 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 15th 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. In recent years the charity has been SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes. Over the thirteen years, the Guacamole Bowl, co-sponsored by San Diego Park & Recreation-Therapeutic Recreation Services, has raised over $138,000 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".

Prize Categories

The top 3 teams in each division, decided by popular vote, will remake their recipe for the official judges for the final rounds. Cooking medals will be presented to the top 3 teams in each division. The gold medal winners from each of the four divisions (Law Enforcement, Kiwanis, Open 1 & Open 2) will then compete for the highly coveted "Guacamole Bowl" Trophy.

Best decorated Table: A trophy will be presented to the best decorated table, as judged by the general public.
