DOING GOOD THROUGH SPORTS TO HELP THE HOMELESS - Donations to the Lucky Duck Foundation will be matched dollar for dollar by the Lucky Duck Foundation to help alleviate the suffering of San Diego's homeless.
Please join us for the 58th Annual Sports Banquet on Tuesday, October 23, hosted by the San Diego Hall of Champions and Lucky Duck Foundation.
The Sports Banquet, a staple Hall of Champions event, is an annual celebration of San Diego's sports, business and civic leaders who gather to do good through sports. This year we are partnering with the Lucky Duck Foundation to recognize County Supervisor Ron Roberts as San Diego's Sportsperson of the Year.
Proceeds from the event will support the Hall's mission to celebrate and support local athletic achievement and youth development through sports and the Lucky Duck Foundation's mission to immediately alleviate the suffering of the homeless across San Diego County.
Few San Diegans have contributed more to each of these efforts than Supervisor Roberts. He understands the benefits that sports provide youth and the entire community, and he has been an ardent supporter of San Diego’s sports organizations. In addition, during his time as County Supervisor, he has made significant contributions in the ongoing effort to help San Diego's homeless population.
The Lucky Duck Foundation (LDF) will be the event's "philanthropic beneficiary," meaning 100% of donations made above and beyond the cost of a $750 individual ticket will go to LDF and their efforts to alleviate the homeless epidemic in San Diego County. And, these donations will be matched dollar for dollar by the Lucky Duck Foundation to help alleviate the suffering of San Diego's homeless.
Since 2005, LDF has contributed more than $10 million to the charitable causes they support. In 2018, LDF has been awarded $2 million, which can be used to match your 100% tax deductible donation, thus doubling the positive impact on the San Diego community.
We hope you will join the Hall of Champions and Lucky Duck Foundation at the 58th Sports Banquet, and we encourage you to donate to LDF in honor of Supervisor Roberts.
Preferred table and seating placement will be awarded based on sponsorship level. Table, ticket, and sponsorship information is below.
