Speaker Sponsor ZLC Financial has, once again, made it possible for organizers to bring an A-list personality to the Vancouver stage. Alex Rodriguez invests in world-class startups and partners with leading global companies across a variety of industries. While best known as one of the world’s greatest athletes (a 14-time MLB All-Star and a 2009 World Series Champion with the New York Yankees), for more than 25 years Alex has led a team of experts building high-growth businesses and enhancing the value of more than 30 companies in the A-Rod Corp portfolio.
Alex is also an Emmy Award-winning MLB analyst for Fox Sports and ESPN. He’s been a judge and investor on ABC’s Shark Tank, mentored financially distressed ex-athletes on CNBC’s Back in the Game and currently co-hosts the podcast The Corp. Alex is committed to creating opportunities for young people to succeed, and serves on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade.
Past speakers include: Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson, Drew Brees, Joe Montana & Jerry Rice, Shaquille O’Neal, Sir Charles Barkley, ‘Sugar’ Ray Leonard, Tommy Lasorda and many others.
Celebrating professional and local athletes, the RBC JCC 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. When the COVID crisis began the JCC quickly adapted to hold the community together, creating new and innovative programs that allowed children, youth and families to remain supported and connected. Proceeds from the dinner ensure no one is left behind, and helps open doors for a better tomorrow.

The in-person show has been carefully planned by committee members and staff currently to allow for a 50% capacity of attendance with proof of double vaccination. The recent lifting of restrictions on indoor gatherings has provided some optimism for the capacity to be increased, however the organizers are monitoring the situation and will reassess as the event date approaches.
