Net-proceeds from Saturday's flag football tournament at MacArthur High School in memory of fallen Wantagh native Rick Bailey to go toward Superstorm Sandy relief efforts.
This Saturday’s fifth annual Rick Bailey Memorial Turkey Bowl flag football tournament
in honor of a MacArthur High School
graduate from Wantagh tragically killed in Albany will take on an extra-special meaning.
Organizers of the flag football event at Levittown’s MacArthur High School and post-tournament reception at Mulcahy’s Pub & Concert Hall
in Wantagh will be using net-proceeds toward Superstorm Sandy relief
efforts on Long Island in Bailey’s name.
Bailey, a former Wantagh
resident and MacArthur football player, was shot and killed in October
2008 during a botched robbery while attending college at the University
at Albany. Bailey's killer, De Von Callicutt, was convinced and sentenced to life in prison
The flag football tournament, which is open to both men and women, is
scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The post-tournament
reception at Mulcahy’s will take place from 4-8 p.m. and feature a $40
open bar, buffet, live music and raffles. Organizers will also be
collecting for the annual John Theissen Children’s Foundation
Holiday Toy Drive.
Tickets for the Bailey Memorial Turkey Bowl can be purchased in advance at Sal’s Place
on 1495 Hicksville Road in Massapequa. For further information, log onto the event’s Facebook page
