As part of the team’s final weekend of training camp, the Boston Cannons will scrimmage the CroART Lacrosse All-Stars this Saturday, April 20, in Harvard Stadium at 6pm. The scrimmage, free and open to the public, will be used to raise funds to support the Boston Marathon victims, with 100% of the money raised going to The One Fund, established Tuesday by Governor Patrick and Mayor Menino.
The Cannons and CroART are asking for a suggested $10 donation at the door from spectators. With the donation, each fan will receive a raffle ticket and the chance to win Cannons and CroART prizes. An auction, including a Cascade Pro7 helmet and an autographed Cannons game-worn jersey, will begin Saturday night and continue online next week.
Players from both teams will donate $20 each prior to playing in the scrimmage, and with many pledging a per-goal donation, it should be a high-scoring, action-packed game!
As part of the fundraising effort, we will sell these Boston Strong t-shirts at the scrimmage on Saturday night, with 100% of the profits going to The One Fund. The t-shirts will be available for sale through the Cannons front office next week, based on availability.
