VA BEACH - It's a good game for a great cause - the annual Charity Bowl.

All money from the November 30 game will be donated to The Joy Fund, which provides toys during the holidays to underprivileged children in Hampton Roads.

Last year's event raised nearly $60,000 and provided toys for nearly 4,000 children.

The Toyota Charity Bowl Football Game, started in 1968, is the longest-lasting charity football game in the country. Teams are made up of former high school, college and professional football players.

This year, the game returns to Va. Beach after four years in Norfolk. The event kicks off, literally, at 5:00 p.m. with the Pop Warner All-Star Game, followed by the Sheriff’s Flag Football Game at 6:00 and then the Charity Bowl at 7:30 p.m.
