Duke Raleigh Hospital Goes for Fourth Flag Football Title


Duke Raleigh Hospital staff at last year’s event.

It’s that time of the year again! Come get in the game and support Duke Raleigh as our team takes on companies throughout the Triangle in the Holt Brothers Flag Football charity event on Saturday, May 18, at the NC State Close-King Practice Facility (4600 Trinity Road, Raleigh) from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Terrence and Torry Holt, former NFL and NC State football stars, host the annual tournament to benefit their foundation, which helps children who have a parent with cancer.

The event is open to all Duke Raleigh employees and their families, and there are many ways to get involved. There are prizes for the top fundraising team, the best tailgate, the best cheerleaders, the best team name, and the best-dressed team. This year’s event will also feature a Kids Zone and a Pet Zone, and you are encouraged to bring your pets and family. Duke Raleigh is a three-time champion, winning the Best Tailgate in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

This year we plan to continue the winning streak, while embarking on the challenge to claim a victory in the corn hole tournament. Even if you can’t be there in person, you can still support the cause! Make a donation to the Duke Raleigh team or look for other “teamraising” opportunities.

If you’re interested, or know someone that may be interested, in playing on Duke Raleigh’s corn hole team, joining the tailgating team, or if you have questions, please contact Tika Simpson in administration at The more, the merrier!
