Retired San Diego Police Officer Matt Weathersby came up with this unique fundraising idea as a way of supporting local charities. This year’s charity is SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes. Over the past nine years, the Guacamole Bowl, co-sponsored by San Diego Park & Recreation-Therapeutic Recreation Services, has raised over $67,000 to support local programs for athletes with developmental disabilities.
According to Weathersby, over 2,000 pounds of fresh avocados donated by Calavo Growers, Inc. will be 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”.
