(Pico Rivera) – El Rancho and Bell Gardens’ “Black and Blue Game” to be held on August 24, 2018 will also serve as a charity event for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Although the game isn’t being played for 6 months, donations are being taken now.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides financial assistance to the surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations service members who lose their lives in the line of duty. The foundation also provides to severely wounded and hospitalized special operations personnel. It is one of the highest rated Military and Veterans charities.
The El Rancho Dons and Bell Gardens Lancers have played 38 times with Bell Gardens having a 21-17 edge in the rivalry. It is always a very hard-fought, hard hitting game by each team. Both schools come from very strong communities that take great pride in their football programs and each school have very successful alumni who make a difference in their communities.
