Special to The Advocate
Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett, in partnership with the Boston Renegades, will be hosting the Community Bowl on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Everett Veterans Memorial Stadium (located on Cabot Street). As part of Mayor DeMaria’s “Everett For Everyone” initiative, residents are invited to come watch the Everett High School (EHS) Alumni take on the Boston Renegades Alumni in a fun and competitive game of flag football. The goal is to bring the Everett community together to enjoy some flag football and help local resident Brandon Conde with his recovery from a spinal cord injury he suffered in 2019.
The event will have free admission for all who attend and will feature concession stands selling food, drinks and merchandise from both teams. All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting Conde’s recovery. The event will begin with a pregame “tailgate” from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. for residents to come together, play field games and have fun. The matchup between the EHS Alumni and Renegades Alumni will kick off at 3 p.m. and will feature a halftime show for all to enjoy.
After the game, there will also be a “Meet the Team Mixer” at the Schiavo Club (located at 71 Tileston St.) from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Attendees 21 and older only are invited to attend to meet the players from both participating teams and support Brandon Conde through donations. There will be food, a cash bar and plenty of fun.
The EHS Alumni team will be comprised of football players who played in the championship seasons 2001, 2002 and 2003, which are known as the “three-peat” years. This is the time period when EHS football won the championship for three years in a row.
The Boston Renegades is a professional women’s football team that is part of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA). The WFA is a professional full-contact women’s football league that began in 2009 and consists of 64 active teams across the United States (as of the 2022 season). The Renegades won their seventh overall and fourth consecutive WFA Pro National Championship this past season.
Mayor DeMaria invites residents to enjoy a day of community and celebrating Everett’s charitable nature through a friendly game of flag football. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
