PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THREE PIECE SUITS TAKE TO THE GRIDIRON AT CHARITY EVENT TO SUPPORT MILITARY VETERANS
BOSTON – Over 200 attendees are expected on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019 at the seventh annual charity event THREE PIECE SUIT FOOTBALL (TPSF), happening at Rogers Park. The park is located in Brighton, the football game kicks off shortly after 2 p.m., and admission is free for all ages.
Guests at the event will enjoy live music from local artists, food trucks, and a VIP reception tent featuring beer & wine. The main attraction of the event is the picture-worthy game of tackle football played by men and women wearing three-piece suits, all for a worthy cause.
For the fifth year in a row, TPSF Boston will support Operation Delta Dog (OpDD), who rescue and train shelter dogs and pair them with local military veterans who could benefit from a service animal. Support is raised for OpDD during the event through VIP reception ticket sales, prize raffles throughout the day, and donations.
“We raised $10,000 at last year’s game, so our goal is to exceed that this year,” said Victor Morency, TPSF Boston chapter president. “We’ve got a good core of supporters, so word of our event spreads and attendance grows each time.” Last year’s crowd was treated to a 40-39 final score with plenty of hard-hitting action.
The charity event first began in Atlanta, Ga., in 2009 as a pickup game of football on the morning of the Super Bowl. “The first year, there were 14 of us playing and a handful of spectators,” explained TPSF founder Cameron Miller. As attendance and excitement for the game increased each year, the players decided to use the event as a way to raise support for worthy causes. “One of our original players was active military and missed the second TPSF game when he was deployed to Iraq,” Miller continued. “So when deciding on a charity, we thought it was fitting to support veterans and their causes.” In 2014, while working at the VA hospital in Jamaica Plain, Miller helped establish the chapter in Boston, which plays this game every October.
