The event will take place October 28-30, 2016, in beautiful Santa Clara, California. The International Swimming Hall of Fame is extremely excited to honor the class of 2016 with a full weekend of festivities.
ISHOF would like to invite swimming enthusiasts and corporations to help up honor these amazing athletes. Table sponsorships and individual tickets are still available. See the attached weekend schedule, which includes a VIP reception with Olympians, a spectacular water show at the historic George Haines International Swim Center, and a formal dinner on Saturday night where Dara Torres, Aaron Peirsol, among the rest of the 2016 class will be honored.
“Coming off of a spectacular Rio Olympic Games,” says ISHOF CEO Bruce Wigo, “we believe the weekend of celebration will provide a great opportunity to promote swimming and the new Santa Clara Community and Recreation Center, which will be our new home.”
