 Community events

Special fund-raising events to support our U.S. Olympic teams have been held in recent Olympic years in conjunction with the United States Olympic Committee. For example, a special "Welcome Home" event honored members of the 2000 team returning from Sydney, Australia. In 2004, the world premiere of The Walt Disney Studios' "National Treasure" was the backdrop for an unforgettable event that paid tribute to U.S. Olympians who competed at the Athens Games.


 Publications

The Sports Council’s highly respected Community Report, a compilation of Sports Council achievements and programs, is published every other year and is distributed to Board members and civic leaders.


 Touchdown for Youth

As a part of its commitment to the communities of Los Angeles, the Sports Council has created programs which bring sports to people who might not otherwise be able to enjoy it.

Principal among these is the Sports Council Foundation’s "Touchdown for Youth" program. Created for the 1993 Super Bowl by Host Committee Chairman Shell Ausman, Touchdown for Youth collects funds from corporate contributors and then uses that money to provide tickets, transportation, drinks and hot dogs for economically disadvantaged youngsters to attend a USC football game at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Over the life of the program, which began with the 1993 USC season, more than 40,000 young people have attended games and enjoyed a glimpse of what sports and university life can offer.
