WHAT IS THE TURKEY BREAST BOWL?
Founded by Corday, the Turkey Breast Bowl was originally an All-Girl (thus the word BREAST) flag football game celebrating our love of football season. After numerous years of good times, the game became increasingly competitive as we all got a bit older, resulting in injuries at every game. In 2021, we decided to create a kinder gentler game -- and play KICKBALL instead of football. This doesn't mean we aren't still highly competitive!
The kickball tournament consists of 3 nail-biting single-elimination games, with players all fighting to take home the big prize -- the perpetual turkey trophy. We have real referees and a damn fun commentator who will entertain you with play-by-play and announcements. Games are timed, and once time is up the winning team moves on to the next round. Players and spectators are welcome!! Players must be on the field by 10:30am in athletic attire, closed toe shoes. EVERYONE is welcome to watch! Spectator stands will be open! That's where you'll get the best view and play-by-play. BYO snacks and drinks (no alcohol/open containers as per City Rules). Player fee is $25 and includes an exclusive Turkey Breast Bowl T-Shirt. You also have the option of donating to FARM SANCTUARY to help sponsor a turkey or two! There is no charge to watch the games, but we encourage everyone to order a T-Shirt, and donate to help a turkey if you can. Scroll down to read more about the turkeys...
Awards Ceremony and Corday Concert immediately follow the tournament at Hennessey's Tavern (143 Main St) in Seal Beach from 3pm-7pm.
100% of whatever you donate to the turkeys will be passed on to Farm Sanctuary, supporting the day-to-day care of at-risk, abused, neglected and injured turkeys at Farm Sanctuary, a 26 acre home to approximately 100 rescued farm animals, located on a beautiful hacienda ranch in Acton, Los Angeles. Farm Sanctuary does amazing work with turkeys and you can read all about it HERE.
