NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - The North Caldwell Police Department is seeking sponsors so that its team can compete in the upcoming NJ Snow Bowl. Organized to support the Special Olympics New Jersey, the eighth annual Snow Bowl is an official 6-on-6 flag football tournament, with light blocking, and takes place over three days from March 1 to March 3 at MetLife Stadium.
“The holidays are almost over and it’s time to do for others, please help us support the NJ Special Olympics,” North Caldwell Police Chief Mark Deuer commented. “We are looking to compete in our first Snow Bowl at MetLife Stadium. A small donation to Team North Caldwell Police will help get us to our fundraising goal!”
Law enforcement has had a long history in NJ of supporting the worthwhile organization. All proceeds collected by the North Caldwell Police Department will benefit Special Olympics New Jersey athletes and the Special Olympics mission.
