Fathers hosting 5th annual Turkey Bowl Thanksgiving Day at 9:30 a.m.

The Iona Prep Lower School Fathers’ Club is proud to present its 5th Annual Turkey Bowl Game on Thursday, Nov. 26, at the Upper School's Wellington T. Mara Field. This event pits dads against their sons for a two-hand touch football game. All alumni of both the Upper and Lower schools and their siblings are invited to participate.

This event was founded five years ago by one of our dad’s, Tom Fritsch, and continues to be a great community builder. Hot Chocolate, Bagels & Coffee will be on hand, so dress warm and come out and join us for some football.

A donation of $20.00 from each family who participates has been collected in the past. Some of the charities we have donated to include the Hope Center, the Hurricane Sandy Fund, American Red Cross for the benefit of the Philippines Typhoon Fund and, last year, to the Nicholas Gardini Fund.

This year, the Fathers are donating to Team Savanna Lily of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Lily is the granddaughter of Mrs. Maria DiFatta, who works in the Upper School Cafeteria.

Come out and enjoy the morning with other Iona Prep families and participate in this annual event. Reminder, this is open to both the Upper & Lower School.

Time: 9:30am – 11:30am
