Ticket Donations Now Being Accepted Through MilitaryBowl.org
WASHINGTON, D.C. – With Thanksgiving just days away, the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman is a sports experience that regional and national football fans can be thankful for, as an exciting battle between the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and Conference USA (C-USA) awaits on December 29 at RFK Stadium. In the spirit of giving, the general public can make a donation toward the purchase of bowl game tickets for military members and their families on MilitaryBowl.org, the bowl’s official site.
The web site, which launched its “Donate Now” feature just last Monday, has already raised over $5,000. Through these contributions, the bowl committee hopes to create a memorable sporting experience for service men and women to enjoy during the holidays.
“The Military Bowl is proud to support our troops and their families,” said Steve Beck, Executive Director of the Military Bowl. “In addition to purchasing bowl tickets, the public can support the military by donating funds through MilitaryBowl.org, so that many of our brave men and women can come out and enjoy this sporting event in our nation’s capital at no cost.”
As the benefiting partner of the Military Bowl, a sizable portion of the bowl game’s proceeds will benefit the USO on an annual basis. The “Donate Now” feature on MilitaryBowl.org aligns with the mission and goals of the bowl, which are to create awareness and funding to support the USO.
“We are so thankful to our service men and women for all that they do for our country,” continued Beck. “From its inception, this event has always supported the military and veterans, and we look forward to continuing that tradition at RFK Stadium on December 29.”
