The celebration of the Army vs Navy football game, held at the Missouri Athletic Club downtown, has been taking place for 32 years now. Hosted by Navy veteran Jim Naumann, the celebration supports the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign with its proceeds and large amount of donated toys. Since its inception in 1947, Toys for Tots has collected and distributed almost 500 million toys. Invited guests enjoyed cocktails and a lunch buffet before watching the 119th annual Army vs Navy game on the big screens. Even though the rivalry is heated, the veterans from both services in attendance were in good holiday spirits to enjoy the historical contest.
