YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Grab your family and friends and form a team to support local food pantries in the annual Turkey Bowl Flag Football fundraiser, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 28.
“You’ll have a fantastic time participating in a family-oriented or competitive event that benefits local food pantries,” said Yorkville Sports Association president, Al Morales.
The 2015 Turkey Bowl will benefit local food pantries, including Yorktown Community Help (YCH), a Yorktown-based nonprofit that was founded in the 1960s. Its purpose is to provide food to individuals and families in need. YCH is 100 percent volunteer run and will be accepting donations and non-perishable foods at the event. The tournament will be held at Navajo Fields at the Yorktown Sports Complex, which is generously donating its fields. You must be at least 18 years old to participate in the competitive divisions. All ages are welcome in the family division. Every player will receive a free commemorative t-shirt. The cost to participate is $35/player. The cost for students is $20/player with a valid student ID. Team check-in starts at 11 a.m. on Nov. 28, and the first game begins at noon.
Winners will walk away with fabulous prizes. The winning team will receive full color championship pinnies and gift certificates to local eateries. The MVP for the tournament will receive a football. In addition, prizes will be going to Team MVPs, Outstanding Athletic Recognition Award, Most Sportsmanship Award and the Muddiest Player Award. The event will also include a 50/50 Football Toss Accuracy Challenge! Activities will run from noon to 3 p.m. Please stop by and support this great cause!
