Thanks to the generosity of the Triad lacrosse community (and our friends from Fayetteville), the first annual Stick It To Hunger Classic collected 340 grocery bags brimming with non-perishable foods — weighing in at 3,284 pounds — as well as net revenue for local charities that is expected to exceed $5,000. The food will be delivered to Greensboro Urban Ministry, and the monetary proceeds will go to the Kernersville Christmas Relief Fund, military families in need, and A Stick From Chase. Team Peeta from the high school division and Old Goats from the adult division were the team winners in amount of food donated. Three teams — Team Everdeen, Blue Jays, and 6M Sports went undefeated in the high school division. The Adult Blackhawks went undefeated in the adult division.
The world’s largest lacrosse raffle— under the heady management of
Commissioner Al Dollman — sold out in under 2 hours and raised over $1,500 for charity.
