Walter Camp Day at the Yale Bowl – October 21st, 2016

The annual Walter Camp Day at the Bowl was held on Friday, October 21 when the Yale University Bulldogs hosted the University of Pennsylvania Quakers in the first night game ever held in the 103-year history of historic Yale Bowl.  The game was televised live on NBC Sports.  Berchem, Moses & Devlin, P.C. sponsored the pre-game event for the eighth consecutive year to support the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF) and the Yale-New Haven Hospital Auxiliary Toy Closets Program.  Fans, friends and firm clients were asked to bring a new unwrapped toy to support the cause, and in return, received a free general admission ticket to the game.  Attorneys and clients of the law firm donated hundreds of toys again this year, bringing the total-to-date to more than 2,500 gifts for children who are patients at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

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 Yale-New Haven Hospital Auxiliary encourages schools, organizations and businesses to make the Toy Closets program the recipient of their community-minded efforts.
