Spectators were surprised at the beginning of the game at 6 p.m., when the teams took the field and not only were there women on the field, but they also were joined by a dozen or so men.
Marino explained, “A few days before the game the opposing team decided to drop out of the event. In order to make sure the event was not impacted, my team and I decided to bring the dads in,” she said. “The guys were wonderful. We split into two co-ed teams. Red and green. We had the best time ever. Such camaraderie. The Red team won but we were all winners in my book.”
After the game Marino welcomed both teams to her house for a party.
Thanks to supporters at the game, the organization raised $900 for AARF.
