“We are excited to announce this great event and continue our efforts in supporting the HEADstrong Foundation. While we continue to accomplish great things on the lacrosse field, our desire is to service the community and make a difference in the lives of patients dealing with blood cancers. We truly embrace the importance of family and felt an annual Fall golf outing was the perfect way to keep our families together in the offseason and have some fun. We hope that supporters will come out and be part of what promises to be a great day.” – Brian Neary, HEADstrong Lacrosse Club General Manager
