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.
