In connection with the Event, the PLA is “challenging” participating teams to solicit and identify a sponsor to make a contribution to support the work of the PLA (recommended contribution of $200, though any greater or lesser amount would be appreciated). Each team and its Challenge Partner will be recognized in press releases, on the PLA website and on other lacrosse websites such as Phillylacrosse.com.
If teams from other US Lacrosse chapters take part, the PLA will earmark their Challenge Partner proceeds to their local chapter! the PLA also is “challenging” teams to collect used lacrosse sticks, which can be donated at the Event, restrung and ultimately recycled for donation and used to promote lacrosse in the City of Philadelphia. The PLA has partnered with HEADstrong Foundation, which is donating its distinctive lime green mesh, in connection with this “HEADstrong” initiative.
