The 7th edition of the Blackhawks Stick it to Hunger Charity Lacrosse Classic will be held on Saturday, November 19 at Cash-Bagley Fields.  The event will feature lacrosse for players from 9 years old through adults.

The event will begin at 9:00 AM and go until mid-afternoon.

As in the past, each participating player will donate a bag of non-perishable food to the event, and all food and net tournament revenues will go to those in need. Last year’s event collected over 3.2 tons of non-perishable food and donated $7,000 to charity.

This year’s event features two exciting¬†changes:

Youth will now play in the event, this year in short-field, short-sided “lightning lax” games.

The Blackhawks are teaming with The Salvation Army and supporting the Triad Holiday Food Drive with all donated food.

With commitments already from players and teams throughout the Triad and from Raleigh, Fayetteville, and Charlotte, this year’s event promises to be another success!
