TV Tops Radio in Celebrity Game at Hope at the Scope
NORFOLK, Va. – Local celebrities teamed up for a great cause on Saturday night at Scope as “TV and Friends” topped “Radio and Friends” 6-4 in the 2009 Hope at the Scope celebrity game to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The Admirals donated a portion of the proceeds from tickets sold from this special game to the Alzheimer’s Association.
The “TV and Friends” team included WTKR NewsChannel 3’s Kurt Williams, Bianca Martinez, Juliet Bickford, Marie Coronel, Christie Barclay, Corinne Milligan and Nick Allen; WAVY-TV 10’s Tom Schaad; and WVEC 13 News’ LaSalle Blanks and Joe Flanagan.

The “Radio and Friends” team included 96X’s Mike Powers, Bob Fresh, “Slightly Overweight Richie Cunningham,” Scotty Mustache and Mark Lees; US106’s Brandon O’Brien; FM99’s Tim Parker; and former Admirals public address announcer Don Bolger.

The Alzheimer’s Association was also represented at the event by Alzheimer's Association Executive Director Gino Colombara, Director of Development Patricia Bartosch and Alzheimer’s Champion and founder of Jim White Fitness Jim White.
The teams were even at one goal apiece after one period. However, the offense exploded in the second period, as “TV and Friends” out-scored “Radio and Friends” 5-3 in the period and claimed the 6-4 win.
