The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman, benefiting the USO, and Katcef Brothers, Inc. are giving one lucky fan the chance for a private meet and greet with the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales on Dec. 26, the day before this year’s Military Bowl game.
The Clydesdales will be in the Washington area to once again lead the Military Bowl Parade on Dec. 27. The Parade starts at 10:30 a.m. at City Dock in downtown Annapolis and proceeds to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
Knowing just how special the Clydesdales are to so many fans, the Military Bowl and Katcef Brothers are asking fans to go on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to share their favorite Clydesdales photo, memory or story and use the hashtag #ClydesHost. One lucky winner will be selected for the opportunity to meet the Clydesdales in a private setting.
“One of the best symbols of Americana is the Budweiser Clydesdales,” said Neal Katcef, President of Katcef Brothers Inc., the Annapolis Anheuser-Busch Wholesaler that has been in business for more than 80 years. “We are very pleased to join with Anheuser-Busch to make the Clydesdales available for the Military Bowl again this year!”
“We are very appreciative of Katcef Brothers’ support of the Military Bowl and helping bring the Clydesdales to Annapolis again,” Military Bowl President & Executive Director Steve Beck said. “Having witnessed the incredible popularity of the Clydesdales during the Military Bowl Parade, we are sure that plenty of fans will be excited to share their stories and hope for the chance to meet the Clydesdales.”
This year’s Military Bowl, which celebrates the USO’s 75th anniversary, matches No. 23 Temple and Wake Forest. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Dec. 27 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The game will be televised on ESPN.
