High School Football Stars Play to Benefit Hospitalized Children

Graduated seniors face off in all-star HS football games in NH in effort to raise money for Shrine hospitals.

The Annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl is no regular football game; it's a major regional event that pulls together graduating seniors from Vermont and New Hampshire in a sportsmanlike game of football whose proceeds are donated to benefit children who are living in Shrine Hospitals for Children. The motto of this long-standing event is "strong legs run so that weak legs may walk," and it's a great encapsulation of the philanthropic nature of this event.

Annual Shrine Maple Sugar BowlThe annual game is held at Castleton State College, and spectators are treated to an impressive Shriner parade before commencement. Players who participate in the game walk off the field as official graduates, and they also have the knowledge that they have helped children who are less fortunate. It's a rare occurrence, too and big draw to the community; there are only 30 Shriner games held across the country annually. For spectators who don't enjoy football as much or for those just hungry for more pageantry, the Shriner All-Star band, a collective of the best marching band players from surrounding schools, will be putting on a spectacular show as part of the event.

All in all, this event provides family fun and entertainment while also supporting children in need of medical care. For those who want to find a quiet place to stay while visiting town, Hanover Inn Dartmouth is a great choice. Our cozy Inn helps you have a smooth visit and a comfortable stay amid the beautiful landscape of New England, and it's conveniently close to Memorial Field at Dartmouth College. You are invited to include our Inn in your plans to visit for this classic event.

Good luck to all participants!
