Key Club seniors came out on top. The Powder Puff game is a longstanding tradition in the community
The Key Club at Lynbrook High School in the Lynbrook Public School District recently hosted its annual Powder Puff football game on Nov. 13, the proceeds from which benefitted the Mary Brennan INN Soup Kitchen in Hempstead.
The friendly competition between junior and senior girls took place on the turf field at Marion Street Elementary School. The game has been a tradition of the Lynbrook community for 15 years, and high schoolers and community members regularly attend.
The Key Club organizes the event, during which junior and senior club members sold jerseys and freshman and sophomore club members volunteered to fundraise. Through the tickets sold to students, parents and members of the community, more than $1,100 was raised for the Mary Brennan Inn, which provides a broad variety of essential services to assist those challenged by hunger, homelessness and poverty.
The senior girls finished the game on top, defeating juniors by a score of 49-43.
