The Goldfish Bowl, the SDLC’s version of “Shark Tank” where Tournaments have the opportunity to compete for Sponsorship Prizes, was a smashing success!

Special THANKS to…
Connect Sports Marketplace, Salt Lake City
Danielle Vincenti, Judge from Richmond Region Tourism
CJ Kelly, Judge from NAGAAA
DJ Doran, Judge from Diversitas Media

Over $18,000 Cash and Prizes were distributed among these AMAZING finalists…
ASANA – Angela Smith, Commissioner
Gay Polo League – Chip McKenney, President
WeHo/USA Dodgeball – Jake Mason, President
Lynn Lewis Foundation – Mashonda Gilmore, Founder

There were such compelling presentations by the Tournament Leaders that there was a tie among the participants. The judges determined to award the 1st and 2nd place prize packages equally and presented them to ASANA and Gay Polo League. WeHo/USA Dodgeball and Lynn Lewis Foundation tied for 3rd prize.

Everyone learned from the experience which has translated into a better understanding of how important presentations are when reaching out to obtain Sponsorships.

Our next Goldfish Bowl will be held at the SDLC Conference in Scottsdale, AZ on Saturday, November 10, 2018, as a part of The Compete Diversity Awards weekend (aka, The Petey’s).

The water has been tested and proven to be “shark-free,” so jump on in! (Our Editor gave me grief about this “turn of phrase,” but let’s face it, there are times when correct grammar is just not as dramatic. ~ LOL)
