Super Bowl party helps Vernon Minor Football

Vernon Minor Football and The Green (formerly Sneakers Pub at the Village Green Hotel) are teaming up

A super partnership continues its local tradition Sunday.

Vernon Minor Football and The Green (formerly Sneakers Pub at the Village Green Hotel) are teaming up to host a Super Bowl party which is used to help minor football.

“This event normally is our best fundraiser,” said minor football president Ed Huber. “The Green has happily been our partner for almost 20 years, helping us raise in excess of $40,000 in that time.”

Minor football executives including Huber, his wife, Wendy, Heidi Hyer and vice-president Scott Nicholas will be selling 50/50 tickets (for five draws), raffling off a 50-inch LCD HDTV (tickets are $15) and selling helmets that are painted and stickered to match the colours and looks of the Super Bowl combatants, the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.

There will also be a prize table for giveaways throughout the day.

“We are encouraging everybody to be wearing jerseys,” said Huber. “Also, at halftime, there will be chili cheese fries-eating contest. That will be fun.”

The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m.

All proceeds from the Super Bowl party go to Vernon Minor Football.
