MIDDLETOWN >> The Powder Puff Charity football game played at Middletown High School Monday night smashed all previous records for attendance and gate receipts.
The crowd, estimated at 800, produced gate revenues of $4,200 according to Key Club interim adviser Lindsay Lowell.
“We also collected 15 boxes of canned goods that will be donated to the Amazing Grace Food Pantry,” said Lowell, a social studies teacher at the high school.
Lowell is subbing for adviser Nicole Charles, who is on child-rearing leave following the birth of the Charles’ son.
“We thank everyone for their support,” said Lowell. “Without the volunteer coaches and officials, this could not have happened. I also thank the Key Club members, who helped in so many ways.
“We were so pleased so many people, including a lot of alumni, turned out to support the kids and the charities.”
The Key Club, a high school service club affiliated with the Rotary Club national organization, is led by President Nick Mroczka, Vice-president Alex Kordonsky, Treasurer Michael Stielau and Secretary Mary Cantwell.
The Blue Dragons senior girls won the flag football game, 28-14 over the junior girls. Some 110 girls played in the game at Rosek-Skubel Stadium, while 35 boys performed as cheerleaders.
