Island Trees Lacrosse Alumni Help Out a Local Family
Lacrosse alumni from Island Trees High School decided that just getting back together and play against each other was not going to be good enough. Instead they decided that they could use their annual event as a way of helping others. Players, parents, community members and local businesses donated raffle prizes, time, and money to help out an Island Trees family who had tragically lost their father. In just the second year, over 60 past players showed up to play against each other. The Even Year team had its revenge from last years loss to the Odd Year team. After the game more then 80 players and family members attended a reception held at Jackie Reilly's Bar and Grill. Players from 1978 to 2005 shared their experiences and showed their commitment to Island Trees Lacrosse.
