About The Charity Bowl

The Charity Bowl originated in 1968 to raise money for The Joy Fund, a charity sponsored by the Virginian-Pilot. The Joy Fund purchased and delivered Christmas gifts to children whose parents could not afford presents. The game was originally played by former high school and college football players at Thanksgiving. Today, the event is the Priority Toyota Charity Celebrity Football Game, a flag football game featuring celebrities, elected officials and football legends. The Charity Bowl continues to benefit a number of local charities.
