Dodgebrawl Brings More Than 3,000 Guests to Downtown
"SMG Tulsa is proud of another successful Dodgebrawl tournament. This requires a special thanks to all the sponsors, the participating teams and all of our health and fitness vendors. The most special part of this event is the opportunity to give back to the community."
- Jeff Nickler, General Manager, SMG Tulsa
Dodgebrawl was designed by SMG Tulsa as part of its lineup of special events that focuses on giving back to the community. Each team selected charity to represent throughout the tournament. The top three winning teams won prize money for their charities as well as the Best Team Name and Best Team Uniform award-winners. For the 2014 event, Dodgebrawl raised more than $4,500 for local charities and nonprofits.

In addition to the Dodgebrawl tournament, Live Great 918 featured a variety of health and fitness vendors, including Fitness Protection Program, Barre 3, My Fit Foods and Fleet Feet Sports Tulsa.
Dodgebrawl made its debut in July of 2012 with 50 participating teams. This year, 58 teams participated in the tournament. Each year, the SMG staff aims to make the event bigger and better for the Tulsa community. The addition of Live Great 918 gave Tulsa residents the opportunity to meet gym and fitness vendors and hear about healthy food choices from local nutritionists and chefs.
