The Blackhawks’ 2015 Stick it to Hunger Charity Lacrosse Classic — a competition for high school and adult teams to be held on Saturday, November 21 at Cash-Bagley Fields — seeks to break its record for non-perishable food collected for the third straight year.  The event began as a Toys For Tots charity tournament in 2010 and 2011 before changing its charitable focus to collecting food for those in need.  Since the first true Hunger Games in 2012, the event has a two-year streak of breaking the previous year’s food collections, culminating in the collection of 2.6 tons of non-perishable food last November.

In addition, the Hunger Games donates all net tournament proceeds to charity.  During each of the last two years, the Blackhawks have donated about $8,000 to worthy charities, including the Kernersville Christmas Relief Fund, Wounded Warrior, and inner-city lacrosse initiatives.

Registrations so far have outpaced any previous year, so the Blackhawks are optimistic that the charitable impact of the event will continue to increase.

In addition to high school and adult lacrosse competition, the event features vendors, concessions, silent auction, and a free youth clinic.
