Joey's Hope Wheelchair Basketball Game Tonight

The Arena Football League and Delgado Community College will host the Joey’s Hope Wheelchair Basketball game tonight (Wednesday, August 8) at 7 p.m. CT, the League Office announced today.
Participating players from both teams in AVITAE ArenaBowl XXV will play against the Rollin’ Hornets, a wheelchair basketball team based in New Orleans.
The Rollin’ Hornets Athletic Association provides sports and recreational programs and events for youth and adults with disabilities.
Admission to the event is free to the public, but donations are encouraged. All of the proceeds from the event will go to support Joey’s Hope for Hungry Children.
Joey’s Hope for Hungry Children was formed to honor the life of New Orleans local USMC Sgt. Joseph A. Bovia who lost his life serving his country on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. With a passion for helping children, his family and friends collect and purchase food items to send home with hungry school children in New Orleans.
