HRYF JOINS Priority Toyota for the 49th Annual Charity Bowl
HRYF has been selected as a 2017 beneficiary of this year’s Priority Toyota Charity Bowl and will receive a donation for attending the 49th Annual Charity Bowl Football Game on Saturday April 15th at 12pm at the S.B Ballard Stadium housed on the campus of Old Dominion University! The Charity Bowl originated in 1968 to raise money for The Joy Fund, a charity sponsored by the Virginian-Pilot. The Joy Fund purchased and delivered Christmas gifts to children whose parents could not afford presents. The game was originally played by former high school and college football players at Thanksgiving. Today, the event is the Priority Toyota Charity Celebrity Football Game, a flag football game featuring celebrities, elected officials and football legends. The Charity Bowl continues to benefit a number of local charities.
