PeaceLacrosse.com, Posted 5/14/20 – From Press Release
Registration is open for the Harlem Lacrosse Classic, a virtual fundraising tournament that allows us to connect, compete and make a difference for Harlem Lacrosse student-athletes.
This is an an opportunity for friendly online competition in the absence of friendly on-field competition!
How does it work?
- Create or Join a Team between Monday, May 4th and Friday, May 22nd at midnight EDT. Your team will be in one of four Conferences, chosen by you:
c. Town/Club/School Team
- Personalize your own fundraising page to share with friends, colleagues and family. All of the dollars and donors you reach will count toward your team’s collective total. (Yes, there are prizes – see below!)
- Share a #Game Ready photo on social media.
Post a photo from one of your favorite “Game Ready” moments – whether competing in a big game, giving a speech at a professional conference, serving your community, or any memory that symbolizes how you get “Game Ready” to do what you love. Dig into the archives and share your best #Game Ready moment, then tag and challenge your friends, family and teammates to post their own “#Game Ready” photo. And don’t forget to tag Harlem Lacrosse, too!
Teams that raise the most support and engage the most people will be our Harlem Lacrosse Classic Champions!
Make sure you tag Harlem Lacrosse too! #gameready #aimhigh
Are there winners?
Yes! There will be two winners’ brackets – one for most dollars raised and one for most donors engaged. On Friday, June 12th, each Conference will send one team into the “Most Dollars Raised” Final Four bracket and one team into the “Most Donors Engaged” Final Four bracket. Winners in both brackets will be named on Monday, June 15th after a 48-hour Championship Weekend Lightning Round.
The two winning teams will be recognized and celebrated during a Championship Award Ceremony (held on Zoom, of course!) hosted by Harlem Lacrosse leaders, including CEO Mike Levin and Executive Board Members and Hall of Fame Coaches, Chris Sailer and Dom Starsia.
Winning teams will also have the opportunity to design a custom Harlem Lacrosse Classic Champions t-shirt in partnership with our Lead Supporter, New Balance.
You mentioned prizes….
Team and Individual prizes will be awarded throughout the tournament for milestones like Most Creative Game Ready Photo, Fastest Team to 50 donors and Fastest Team to $5,000, plus more to come. Prizes include Harlem Lacrosse gear, social media shout-outs, and virtual experiences with Harlem Lacrosse celebrity supporters.
