Hundreds of families already have registered for The Rivalry Series, an annual single elimination flag football tournament for men, women and children at Count Basie Field in Red Bank on Friday, November 23, 2018 (Black Friday). And our goal is to recruit more!
The event, which benefits Lunch Break in Red Bank, has expanded over the years to offer more games for more age groups from more towns. This year, The Rivalry Series will feature teams from Little Silver, Shrewsbury, Rumson, Fair Haven, Red Bank, Middletown, Oceanport and Monmouth Beach.
The Rivalry Series, which began in 2002 as a pick up football game for middle school children in Little Silver and Shrewsbury, has grown into much more than an annual flag football tournament. During the lead up to the Thanksgiving holiday, players will roll up their sleeves to serve warm meals for families in need at Lunch Break on two consecutive Saturdays, Nov. 17 and Nov. 24, 2018.
The excitement surrounding the big Game Day is not to be missed. The Downtown in Red Bank will host the Kickoff Party and Val’s Tavern in Rumson will be the destination for the After Party for all participants and their families. It’s a win-win for everyone!
