Lacrosse Unlimited Provides Assist on Giving Tuesday
For Immediate Release
Contact: Michael Colleluori
Giving Tuesday takes place each year following Cyber Monday, highlighting non-profits of all shapes and sizes while encouraging individuals to make a special donation. The reality of 2020 is that many businesses, especially in the non-profit sector, have been negatively impacted and are counting on Giving Tuesday to help offset some of the cancelled campaigns and events.
Luckily, the HEADstrong Foundation can count on their wonderful partners, including Lacrosse Unlimited. HEADstrong and the lacrosse community are forever linked through HF founder, Nick Colleluori who was a sophomore on Hofstra University’s Men’s Lacrosse team during his fight. As a longtime supporter of the foundation, Lacrosse Unlimited has offered to provide an assist once again! Lax Unlimited, which has stores peppering the eastern seaboard, has continued their commitment to improving lives affected by cancer with two wonderful opportunities for Tuesday, December 1st.
An exclusive HEADstrong and Lacrosse Unlimited partnership t-shirt is being sold at all of the locations, as well as online. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of that t-shirt will be donated to the HEADstrong Foundation to continue the mission. Likewise, the team at LU will encourage patrons to donate and fill out a small poster to be hung on the wall, celebrating in the spirit of giving.
“We are always so grateful for the support from the lacrosse community, and certainly the continued assistance from Lacrosse Unlimited. As a staple retailer in the sport that has introduced 1000s of people to the organization, we extend our deepest thanks to Lax Unlimited for continuing to stick by us, despite the obstacles of 2020,” said Michael Colleluori, HEADstrong VP and Nick’s Brother.
