Young Democrats use Redskins-Ravens game to raise money for Sandy relief

By ,

Prince George’s Young Democrats are getting into the Redskin-Ravens rivalry promoted by County Executive Ken Ulman (D-Howard) and County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D-Prince George’s). But they are using the regional rivalry as a chance to promote public service, rather than a fight promoted by the older generation about who can wear which jersey.

Larry Stafford Jr., president of the Prince George’s Young Democrats issued this challenge just hours before game time: If the Baltimore Ravens lose, the Howard County Young Democrats and the Baltimore City Young Democrats will agree to take on one service project within the Washington Metropolitan area, selected by the the Prince George’s County Young Democrats and Montgomery County Young Democrats. And if the Ravens win, the Montgomery County and Prince George’s County Young Democrats will agree to take on a service project within the Baltimore region.

The Montgomery County Young Democrats are hosting a Hurricane Sandy relief watch party at 12:30 p.m. at 3500 Burtonsville Rd., in Spencerville, near the Howard-Montgomery border. The price of entry: a donation to Sandy relief efforts, Stafford said.
