Frederick, MD (LG) It’s time for the Battle of the Badges! The 2017 Turkey Bowl Flag Football Tournament is a competition match between the Frederick County Firefighters and the Frederick City Police Officers. As much of a competition that it is between both sides for bragging rights, two years ago both sides were successful in collecting over 140 pounds of canned food and goods to donate to the Frederick County Food Bank.
“The firefighters won last year,” said Chris Chiaravalloti, FPD. “They actually won the last two years, but we came together this year and put together a pretty solid game plan that we are planning to execute on the field,” he continued.
This year’s goal is to raise $10,000 for Operation Warm, which is a charity that purchases warm coats for local children in need.
The event is taking place on November 11th, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. at the Chuck Foreman Field, at Ballenger Creek Park.
The field will open at 11:00 a.m. with pre-game events to include, food, local vendors, and music. Admission is $7.00 for adults and children 10 and under are free.
