Letter: Lacrosse Fundraiser Supports Students

Recently the Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club celebrated its 20 Year Anniversary with a “Knight –Out” Fundraiser at the Knights of Columbus. We would like to acknowledge all the people and local businesses that continue to support our program. A portion of the proceeds raised will go to our annual scholarship awards given to Glen Cove High School seniors. Eligible are students that played in the Jr. Lacrosse program for a minimum of one  year and continued with high school lacrosse and then on to attend college with the hopes of continuing their lacrosse careers.

 

This year Ryan Perkins received our annual scholarship award. He volunteered his time to help recruit elementary school children and teach them the fundamental aspects of lacrosse. Ryan will be attending

Nassau Community College next year. The Jr. Lacrosse family wishes him great success during his collegiate journey. 

 

The following businesses and boosters were generous in supporting our event:  Christopher & Theresa Shea; James & Cheryl Hatala; Rich & Eileen Borer; Lina Cameron; Camille Farnan; Rob & Dena Field;

Denise Heenan; Leo’s Deli; The Downtown; Delicious Pizza; Glen Cove Car Wash; Landing Liquors; La Famiglia, JD Gates, The View Restaurant; American Café; Amalfi; Wine Factory Liquors; Glen Floors; Glen

Cove Beer; Glen Cove Cinemas; Late Knights Maroon & White seventh & eighth grade teams.  A DVD of our 20 year season, created by Kopetic Photography with Todd Kopetic and Andrew Guster supplying most of the photos, was a complimentary gift to all our guests. 

 

Fabulous food was prepared for us by our third/fourth grade team coach and great Chef Kevin Heenan with assistance by a good buddy who learned a lot about kitchen work!       

 

Along with the above listed, we want to thank Joe Fiorino, his crew, and the Glen Cove School District for providing us with the wonderful care of our fields. 

 

Please contact Grady Farnan at 759-9180 if you would like to be involved in our next year’s event or to be a part of our 21st year season and beyond you can visit us at www.glencovelax.com. We guarantee that you will have a GREAT TIME!
