Blue-Gold football game June 22

June 11, 2013

Delaware’s 58th Annual DFRC Blue-Gold All★Star Football Game is one of Delaware’s premier benefit events and is for a good cause, helping those with intellectual disabilities. It’s always a great game, with high school all-star players, band members, cheerleaders, and other students from around the state. And since this is Delaware after all, you are guaranteed to meet your friends and your elected officials (and those who would like to become elected officials!)

The game is at the UD stadium. There’s tailgating, and lots of pre-game activities for kids and grownups. Even if you aren’t sure you can go, pick up a few tickets for the cause. Tickets are available online NOW via TicketLeap and are also available at the door.

Schedule and details will be available here: http://www.blue-gold.org/blue-gold-football-game

It’s more than just a football game. For weeks before the game, the football players and cheerleaders are matched with individual “buddies” who benefit from the programs, and they spend time together at their homes and other events, even if it’s just having a catch. I know this first-hand, because my younger brother with Downs Syndrome was always thrilled when his buddy came to visit. These high school kids really are All Stars. Everybody wins even before the game starts.
