Scrimmaging for a cause

Good football, a good cause and good weather.

That’s the forecast for Saturday night’s nine-team Breast Cancer Awareness Day scrimmage at Bay Shore High School that will benefit the Judi Shesh Memorial Foundation. The varsity program begins at 5 p.m., with a series of half-hour scrimmages among the teams going on simultaneously at the North and South fields.

For the second year in a row, Bay Shore coach Jim Giattino, whose wife is a breast cancer survivor, is hosting this event, which features three of Suffolk County’s top-seeded teams for the 2010 season — North Babylon (Division II), Sayville (Division III) and Bayport-Blue Point (Division IV). The other participants are Bay Shore, Connetquot, Copiague, Deer Park, Newfield and Wyandanch.

There is a $5 admission charge for spectators, with the money going directly to the Shesh Foundation in support of breast cancer awareness. There will be a table set up for those wanting to make additional donations to the cause. The Marauder Football Booster Club will operate a concession stand during the scrimmages.
