The Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver is thrilled to announce that the 26th Annual JCC Sports Dinner will be taking place on March 5th, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Celebrating professional and local athletes, the Sports Dinner raises much-needed funds to provide scholarships and programs for members of the community who wouldn’t otherwise have access to these services.
The keynote speakers this year are two NFL Hall of Famers, Quarterback Joe Montana and Receiver phenom Jerry Rice. This will be the first time that these two speak together in Vancouver. This year’s Jack Diamond Award recipient is Greg Douglas, aka “Dr. Sport” who was the original publicist for the Vancouver Canucks and went on to almost two decades of topical sports coverage landing him in the BC Sports Hall of Fame.
Over 900 of the city’s top executives and sports enthusiasts will be in attendance as the dinner has become a place that connects business professionals with media personalities, government representatives, professional sports alumni, benefactors, and community leaders.
Previous speakers include: Shaquille O’Neal, Howie Long, Sir Charles Barkley, Emmett Smith, Vincent Edward ‘Bo’ Jackson, Scotty Bowman and many others.
CIBC is the Proud Sponsor of the event. Other top-tier sponsors include Nicola Wealth Management, Modern Green Canada, ZLC Financial, Dayhu Group of Companies, Beedie, Bosa Properties, Devonshire Properties, Keil Investment Group, MLT Aikins LLP, West Coast Reduction, AON Construction Services Group and Belmont Properties.
Live auction highlights include the brand new Cadillac XT4 Crossover, courtesy of Dueck Auto Group, and a private dinner for 8 people prepared by celebrity chef David Hawksworth.
Sponsorships available now, tables and a very few individual tickets on sale mid-February.
