Powderpuff Games Score for Charity

Girls from neighboring Catholic high schools Chaminade Julienne, Carroll and Alter will team up on the gridiron to score for a local charity Saturday, May 12 during the Touchdown for Tots Powderpuff Football Tournament.

Games have been relocated to Carroll High School's practice football field (directions) and the gate opens at 11 a.m. for spectators. Admission costs $2 per person (players and coaches included) and concessions will be available. All proceeds benefit the Children’s Medical Center of Dayton.

Support our senior Eagles as they face off against Alter at 11:30 a.m. before taking on Carroll at 2:10 p.m. The Patriots and Knights play each other beginning at 12:50 p.m.

Touchdown for Tots is CJ’s third annual charity powderpuff football event, hosted each spring since 2010 by members of Student Council. The 2011-2012 school year marks the first time all three area Catholic high schools will participate together. In the previous two years, CJ and Alter have combined to help raise more than $500 for charity.

CJ Student Council members appreciate donations of baked goods and beverages (bottled water, soda, sports drinks, etc.) to sell at the concession stand, and are also looking for volunteers to referee and announce the games. Anyone interested in helping with the tournament should contact Angela Ruffolo, teacher and Student Council moderator, at aruffolo@cjeagles.org.
