The Babak Najafi Alumni Flag Football Game made a comeback this year! The alumni game is how we started, and we want to keep that legacy alive in honor of Bob.

Thank you everyone for another successful event! We hope everyone had a good time–the love and Bob’s spirit was definitely felt. The new location at Torne Valley Sports Complex, original merchandise, visitor and player turnout were incredible. Since we fundraise one year in advance, our event last night set us up financially for the 2014 scholarship recipient! We are confident the successful fundraising, which was a result of a solid turnout and even exceeded recent years, will help our now officially NYS Non-Profit Organization grow to have an even broader reach and greater impact, all in Bob’s name and remembrance. Congrats again to Jason Senat and all previous scholarship recipients!
