The ninth annual powder puff football game between the Missisquoi Valley Thunderbirds and BFA-St. Albans Comets is Saturday night.
Boys on the football team team will trade their pads for headsets and serve as coaches while the ladies meet in a contest that’s historically been ultra competitive, and not just on the field.
Funds raised will benefit Camp Ta-Kum-Ta and the Norwhwest Medical Center’s Jim Bashaw Fund, each serving in the fight against cancer.
For the players, raising the most money, is the ultimate prize.
“I guess it’s bragging rights to the teams that have come before, and how much money they raised. We always want to go higher than what was before. So I believe that’s more of our bragging rights, like, ‘We made this much more money!’ and just brag it on. But it’s not just about the win, it’s about money for good causes,” said BFA tight end Jenni DeLaricheliere
Over the years, the powder puff game has raised well over 100-thousand dollars for cancer research. Saturday night at 7:00, a packed house is expected as BFA-St. Albans closes out its spirit week.
