As part of the bowl's long tradition of fighting hunger, Foster Farms will donate 100 meals to a local food bank for each contest entry received. The winner will also get to choose a local food bank to receive a donation of 1,000 meals in their name.
"The 'Oh Say, Can You Sing?' contest is a great opportunity to highlight local young talent and get people excited for this year's Foster Farms Bowl," said Ira Brill, director of communications at Foster Farms. "Last year's winner, a group of 10 singers from Maria Carrillo High School Jazz Choir of Santa Rosa, California, impressed the crowd with their rendition of the anthem. We look forward to this year's entries."
The 2016 Foster Farms Bowl will feature teams from the Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences. The game will be televised live on Fox with a 5:30 p.m. PT kickoff. Foster Farms will donate one meal to local hunger relief organizations for every Foster Farms Bowl ticket purchased. For more information about the game and tickets, visit www.FosterFarmsBowl.com.
