The snow and ice have fallen; the last fans have left Secaucus Junction; the security perimeter is down and the toboggan is gone from Times Square. So when the dust, or ice, settles, who really won the Super Bowl, other than the Seahawks, the broadcasters and those who were able to cash in on the extravaganza?
One answer for the long term is hopefully the youth of the tri-state area, who received the legacy gifts from the largest charitable endeavor ever involved with the Super Bowl, The Snowflake Youth Foundation. The impressive endeavor raised more than $11 Million that is going to 50 projects to help not just football-playing youth, but young people of all backgrounds, from Newark and Belmar to Paterson and Rahway.
