The battle of The Finest vs. The Bravest is on!

November 10, 2015

Residents of ROSS’ apartments for rent in Hyattsville, mark your calendars because on Saturday, November 14, the Hyattsville Fraternal Order of Police (HFOP) Lodge #119 will take on the Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department (HVFD) for their 5th annual Heroes Bowl at Magruder Park, and you aren’t going to want to miss it!

In case you’re new to the area, the Heroes Bowl is an epic flag football game that determines whether the HFOP or HVFD will have bragging rights for the next year. Far more importantly, as the participants will tell you, proceeds from this great event go toward benefiting the Sonny Frazier Toy Drive. So, in lieu of charging a monetary amount for admission, fans are asked to pay the admission price of a new, unwrapped toy or cash donation.

The Sonny Frazier Toy Drive is a non-profit organization that supplies underprivileged children in our community with gifts for the holidays.

To get the community pumped up for the battle – won last year by the HVFD – here’s an exclusive inside scoop on how the two teams are feeling about the big day:

“364 days a year we work side-by-side with the HVFD assisting people in their times of need. We work with each other during each and every one of those 364 days to make our community a safer place. You may be wondering ‘What happened to that 365th day?’ That day is November 14. The time is 3:00 pm. The place is Magruder Park. We put our working relationship on hold to find out who is best….The Finest (HFOP) or The Bravest (HVFD).”

Head home after the Heroes Bowl knowing that you could be living in an active apartment community that shares your values and truly cares about the well-being of all its members. It starts with a tour of ROSS’ apartments in Hyattsville.
