Youth football team needs funds for national championship
SAN MATEO, Calif. (KGO) -- A youth football team in San Mateo is hoping supporters feeling the holiday spirit will help them realize the opportunity of a lifetime.
The Pop Warner Bay Cities Bulldogs Midgets team has earned a spot in the national championship in Orlando, Florida, beginning December 7. This is the first team in the local league's 26-year history to make it that far. But, lack of money may force the 12 to 14 year old boys to stay home.
They need to raise $40,000 for the trip and they're well short of that.
