Football jamboree: Making tackles to raise money

Anoka-Ramsey Athletic Association hosted more than 34 youth football teams in a football jamboree at Central Park in Ramsey Aug. 24.

The event included players from second- through eighth-grade taking part. More than $3,000 was raised for the Dylan Wiitschen Foundation through concessions sales.

Instead of a registration fee, teams were asked to bring non-perishable food to benefit Hope 4 Youth, which serves homeless youth in Anoka County through housing, outreach, prevention and education. The top donating team received a pizza party courtesy of Papa Murphy’s. More than 1,200 pounds of food was donated.
