Lax4Lunches Benefits Community Lunch
Posted on Monday, April 29, 2013
While it will be Denver, Loyola, Ohio State and Fairfield on Boswell Field come May 2 in the semifinals of the ECAC Lacrosse League Tournament, the Hobart Statesmen will be a key participant as well with the team's Lax4Lunches initiative.
In appreciation for the HWS community's support throughout the year, Hobart Athletics is extending free admission (with a valid HWS ID) for the three ECAC tournament games to all members of the HWS community, students, staff and faculty.
The Hobart Lacrosse Team requests that all HWS Community members make a donation to Geneva's Community Lunch Program as they enter Boswell Field, a minimum donation of $1 is encouraged. The team will also be collecting donations from fans during the tournament. All donations will go to the Community Lunch Program.
Every summer the demand at the Community Lunch Program skyrockets as many children are out of school and turn to the CLP daily for their midday meal. The Statesmen lacrosse team created Lax4Lunches to help keep the pantry adequately stocked this summer for Geneva's kids.
Join the Statesmen Stickmen in making a great assist!
