Walter Camp Day at Yale Bowl

Saturday is Walter Camp Day at the Bowl when the Yale Bulldogs host the Leopards of Lafayette College at 12 noon.

The Walter Camp Football Foundation in conjunction with the Yale-NH Hospital Auxilary's Toy Closets Program is asking fans to bring a new unwrapped toy* to support the cause and in return, receive a free general admission ticket to the game.

Toys can be dropped off at the Hospitality Village on Central Avenue, which is located near Gates D & E.

This is the 10th year the Walter Camp Foundation has coordinated this toy drive and the first with event sponsor, the law firm of Berchem, Moses & Devlin, P.C.

The Yale-New Haven Hospital Auxiliary's Toy Closets program was developed to provide new, age-appropriate and educational toys to pediatric patients at the Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital.

Founded in 1993 by Ann Nyberg, WTNH News Channel 8 anchorwoman, the Toy Closets help insure that pediatric patients come away from their hospitalization with a pleasant memory. In addition, the toys serve as gifts for special occasions such as birthdays and holiday celebrations for hospitalized children.

Toys, gifts and financial contributions are needed throughout the year.

The success of the Toy Closets program is directly related to community involvement, such as Walter Camp Day at the Bowl.

The Auxiliary encourages schools, organizations and businesses to make the program the recipient of their community-minded efforts.
