The Sports Celebrity Dinners were developed by the Jewish Community Centre of Toronto in 1985. Each year, a different person connected with the world of sports was honoured by the community for their contributions. The night included a dinner, guest speakers and celebrity appearances, and usually an athletic demonstration or participatory event that related to the honouree's sport. For example, a boxing match, a skating demonstration or a batting cage.
