Please join the Boys Lacrosse Program on Saturday, May 5th at Staples High School Stadium as they honor and raise funds for our country’s wounded veterans in a Sticks For Soldiers event.
Begun in 2006, the idea came from long-time lacrosse player, coach and youth advocate Mike Voucas; the tournament has raised $155,000 since inception. Staples Lacrosse has participated in the Thanksgiving tournament for 4 years and is now pleased to continue its involvement with this great cause.
The afternoon will begin at 3:30PM and introduce Captain Rick Holahan, a Connecticut member of the Armed Services, who served in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom and has just returned from a voluntary deployment in Afghanistan. The game will commence at 4:00PM when the Staples Boys Varsity Lacrosse team takes on St. John the Baptist. Half time activities will include Westport PAL team play. $5 tickets for admission will be sold at the game by The Wreckers Lacrosse Club. Jr’s Hot Dog Stand will serve dogs and chips for $3/ticket. Baked goods and T-shirts will also be sold.
All monies raised at this event will go to providing support for severely injured servicemen through Sticks for Soldiers.
Come join in the festivities, support our wounded soldiers and our high school boys lacrosse team.
