Berry College Face Off for a Cause

 

The Berry College Men’s Lacrosse program will host its first annual “Faceoff for a Cause” along with the men’s lacrosse programs from Emmanuel College, North Greenville University, Reinhardt University, Shorter University, and Young-Harris College on Saturday, Oct. 24th from 9:30-5:30 p.m. at Berry College Valhalla Stadium. The event includes scrimmages between the teams, a FREE youth clinic, and fundraiser as the squads look to raise $10,000 for the nonprofit organization Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).

 

 “We’re excited to host such a wonderful day of Lacrosse and charity,” said Berry’s Head Coach Curtis Gilbert. “We hope that both the Berry College and growing Georgia lacrosse communities show their support and help us raise money and awareness for this great cause.” 

 

Special thanks are already due as both the referee’s and Aramark Dining Services have expressed their support for the cause.  The referees will be donating their fees to the WWP, while Aramark Dining Services has offered to feed all attending players for free. Similar events in the Northeast have raised $23,000 for WWP to date. 

 

“We hope that Berry College can establish a similar platform for our fall play date to help such a terrific cause,” explains Gilbert. “We feel that with the addition of our brand new turf stadium, we now have the facility to host this annual event for years to come, and are excited about the opportunity.”
