The 6th annual Play for the A’s lacrosse event will be held on Saturday April 21 at Strath Haven High School in Wallingford.

Play for the As supports the battle against Alzheimer’s disease by raising funds that enable us to offer support services to families affected by this dreaded disease. Our ongoing partnership with the Taylor Community Foundation gives us the opportunity to share all donated funds locally to assist families whose loved ones are affected – our fight to overcome this debilitating disease needs your help!

Directors are pleased to announce that we just crossed the $2,000 gift giving mark in this year’s fight vs Alzheimer’s Disease!
