MLL and NB Foundation Raise $28k for HEADstrong FoundationAugust 9, 2012 - Major League Lacrosse (MLL)
Following the MLL All-Star Game, players signed their game-worn jerseys, which were auctioned on the MLL auction site with all proceeds going to the HEADstrong Foundation. The auction raised $14,000, which the NB Foundation generously agreed to match, bringing the total to $28,000.
"The funds generated through this event will be instrumental in providing the blood cancer population with resources and quality of life services offered by the HEADstrong Foundation," said HEADstrong Foundation President Cheryl Colleluori. "It has been a pleasure to work alongside the MLL this season, further demonstrating the Foundation's association to the sport of lacrosse. From the bottom of our hearts we wish to thank MLL for recognizing our cause in the fight against these diseases."
A check will be presented to the HEADstrong Foundation during the 2012 MLL Championship Weekend presented by Warrior on August 25 and 26 at Harvard Stadium in Boston, Mass. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or by calling the Boston Cannons at 617-746-9933 ext. 1.
