Attention Garden City Lax Players
Please consider donating any used lacrosse equipment to the Brooklyn Admirals Lacrosse Program. Started back in 1999, the program encourages inner city youth to get involved in lacrosse. Lacrosse equipment tends to be expensive and many of these children cannot play because they don't have the proper tools like helmets, pads, sticks and gloves. Call Mark Haase at 877-2312 with any questions or to arrange a pick up/drop off of donations.
