The 8th annual Stick it to Hunger Charity Lacrosse Classic, the Triad’s longest-running off-season lacrosse event, will be held on Saturday, November 18 at Cash-Bagley Athletic Complex in Kernersville.
The annual event, which is organized and hosted by the Triad Blackhawks lacrosse club, features adult and high school team competition and a youth event, collects non-perishable food from each participant and donates all net revenues to local charities. Each registered player in the event will donate a grocery bag of non-perishable food, which will be distributed to families in need through First Christian Food Pantry in Kernersville. In addition, this year’s event will feature the The Table Food Truck, a part of First Christian’s FeedUFeed2 ministry, as the food
concession. The event has consistently collected and donated over 3 tons of non-perishable food each year for distribution.
This year’s Hunger Games features high school and adult teams and players from counties throughout the Triad and beyond. For two programs – East Forsyth High School and the Alamance County War Dogs – this will be their 8th straight year of participation.
The event is also open to youth competition in short-field “lightning lax” games.
The day’s festivities will include a raffle, vendors, and concessions.
Admission to the event is free for spectators, and members of the public are encouraged to drop by, make a food donation, and enjoy a day of exciting lacrosse action.
