Pope Ladies Lacrosse along with the Junior Greyhound program are proud to once again support Lace up with Lax! On Wednesday, March 27th at 5:00pm in the main stadium, join us in supporting the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children by bringing a pair of childrens black shoes.
From the Lace up with Lax website....
"Lace Up With LAX is dedicated to defining the legacy of lacrosse players off the field by working to provide children who are homeless a new pair of shoes and in turn, a step to a brighter future.
How we began...
When we first started Lace Up With LAX, our goal was to provide as many new shoes to children who are homeless as possible. The ultimate goal is to help end the cycle of homelessness. In late April 2013, one of our players father's was driving to work south of the airport. As he passed a public housing complex and some children were waiting for a school bus, he noticed that one of the boys was wearing a 2013 Lace Up With LAX t-shirt. Knowing that the child was waiting for a bus in his own neighborhood and not a shelter, this showed us that our mission IS working...one pair of shoes at a time."
The PHS Gala is right around the corner, Saturday night, March 9th at 6:30 at The Mill Kitchen & Bar. It’s the fundraiser for Pope foundation and individual programs in which ladies’ lacrosse does get a portion of money raised on this night. You may get your tickets by texting a PHSGALA to 52182 or clicking the link.
Most IMPORTANTLY we need all families to help by contributing wine for our wine pull and if you have donation items that can be auctioned. Some examples are restaurant gift cards, movie tickets, and nail/hair salon gift cards and cash to create a basket. Also, lake or beach homes for weekend or week stays were auctioned last year, as well as Atlanta United tickets . Please see signup genius below.
Either me, Amy Heinrich, or Dianne Estroff will be at the 2/14 and 2/27 games for your convenience to give us your donation. If not, you may drop them at my house.
Thanks so much,
