Annual Thanksgiving Day football game held for charity
A group of Long Island residents played an annual Thanksgiving football game for a good cause.
The charity game took place in Frazer Park in Greenlawn for the 11th-straight year.
The players say it's not just about getting together to play football, they also require donations from all the participants. Those donations are then given to local charities.
"The first year started off with about 10, 12 kids and then it grew to 20 and then it grew to 40," says Robert Gadamowitz, of Greenlawn. "We've got as many as 50 to 100 kids some years, so it's been quite the experience over the years. It's been good to see that the kids are still doing it."
Donations for this year's game went to the Ronald McDonald House. In past years, participants gave to local food kitchens and Superstorm Sandy relief.
Parents told News 12 they are happy to see their kids have fun while helping a good cause year after year.
