The East Hampton girls varsity and junior varsity soccer teams are hosting the second annual Battle of the Bonackers staff soccer game.
On Wednesday, October 23, at 4:15 PM at East Hampton High School, teachers and staff members from John Marshall Elementary School, East Hampton Middle School, Springs School, and East Hampton High School will face off against each other to raise money to “kick out” cancer.
This event is open to the public. Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased at the door. There will also be performances from the East Hampton dance team and pep band. Food and drinks will be sold along with raffle tickets to win prizes from local businesses. There’s also a chance to score a penalty kick. All proceeds will be donated to Suffolk County Girls Soccer Coaches Association’s Kicks for Cancer, benefitting cancer organizations and local families.
Last year, East Hampton raised $1700. Varsity girls soccer coach Cara Nelson said the goal is to surpass that this year.
This version has been amended to indicate the new date and time of the Battle of the Bonackers game. The game was postponed due to projected inclement weather on the original date, October 3.
