SNG vs. Southern Football Game
A Historic South Philly Tradition Returns in 2021!
A pandemic couldn’t stop it! Scheduling conflicts wouldn’t derail it!
87 years after it started, nothing could keep it from happening!

The 2021 Thanksgiving holiday will be one to remember! SNG is reviving the beloved Ss. Neumann Goretti vs Southern Thanksgiving Day Football Game.
 
This long-standing tradition of Turkey & Touchdowns is the centerpiece of a cornucopia of planned events throughout the week with the theme:

Giving Tuesday
Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Last year Ss. Neumann Goretti's Giving Tuesday efforts raised over $34,000 for tuition assistance! This year, we'll look to increase that amount with increased awareness and promotion, again centered around this week of activities.
 
Our theme this year will be #Donate87toNG. This new theme builds on the support from 2020's theme of #Donate86toNG honoring the 86 years of Catholic education in South Philadelphia. One year later, this branding remains relevant and continues.

Snow Ball
Snow Ball
Friday, December 3, 2021

This adults-only dance will be a take on the familiar Turkey Trot that was held the evening before the traditional Ss. Neumann Goretti vs. Southern game in years past. Since it will occur in early December, we picked Snow Ball as the event name.
 
Snow Ball will be a ticketed event and held at Ss. Neumann Goretti. Alumni, parents, and other interested adults are welcomed to attend. Details on registrations will be available on this page soon.
