Menlo meets Sacred Heart Prep at Valparaiso Bowl

       For the eighth year in a row, rival football teams from Menlo School and Sacred Heart Preparatory will face each other in the Valparaiso Bowl, set for Saturday, Nov. 13.

The games raises money for the Peninsula Bridge program, which provides additional academic training for students from East Palo Alto, east Menlo Park, Redwood City and San Mateo. Some 250 middle-schoolers each year attend summer courses at Sacred Heart Prep, Menlo School, and other campuses on the Peninsula.

For the first time, the game will be played under the lights at Sequoia High School, 1201 Brewster Ave. in Redwood City.

The junior varsity game will start at 4 p.m., followed by the varsity game at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 for students, $10 for adults, and no charge for children 5 and under.

Refreshments will be sold, and all gate and food proceeds will benefit Peninsula Bridge.

Old Pro restaurant and sports bar in Palo Alto is donating food and will donate food sale proceeds to Peninsula Bridge, according to Ellen Moran, SHP football parent and member of the Valparaiso Bowl Committee.

The Valparaiso Bowl is so named because players on the two teams go to school only a few doors from each other on Valparaiso Avenue in Atherton.
