Turkey Bowl flag football tournament benefits Pueblo's Care and Share

It's a flag football tournament that started out as a fun rivalry between brothers.

Now in its fourth year, the Turkey Bowl has become a full blown tournament between ten teams with a total of 120 players.

They played out at CSU-Pueblo, and all of the proceeds from the event go to Pueblo's Care and Share to help out needy families for Thanksgiving.

"There are families everywhere that don't get that warm feeling that you get when you hear the word Thanksgiving," said Isaac Montoya, Co-creator of the Turkey Bowl. "It just makes me think of family, food, and football."

Their estimates so far show they've raised more than $3,000 this year.

Last year they raised $1,200 which helped buy food that was given to 7,000 families.
