For well over two decades, Marcus Borden has run a charity all-star football game in the summer.

For the longest time it was the Snapple Bowl. Other sponsors also have put their name on the game. For the last two years, there’s been no game at all due to COVID-19.

This July 21st, it will make its return, at North Brunswick Township High School’s Steve Libro Field, where it will be known as the Marisa Rose Bowl, with Bellamy & Son Paving – a founding and regular sponsor of Central Jersey Sports Radio – as its primary benefactor.

Proceeds from the game will support the Marisa Tufaro Foundation, which helps children in need – and their families – in Middlesex County and beyond.

The game can be heard live on Central Jersey Sports Radio, with Mike Pavlichko and Korbid Thompson calling all the action, starting with pregame at 6:45 pm, and kickoff at 7:00. Click here to listen on gameday.
