From the Colonie Boys’ Lacrosse Booster Club:
The 5th Annual Colonie Boys’ Lacrosse Auction will be held on Friday, March 18th at 7:00 PM in the Village of Colonie Recreation Center (behind Colonie FD on Central Avenue). The auction remains Colonie Lacrosse’s primary fund-raiser to support the many needs of K-12 boy lacrosse in the district. The money raised by the auction helps to pay for coaching, coaches training, facility use, player recognition, equipment, uniforms and lots of scholarships for players in off-season programs.
There is a lot riding on the auction and we NEED YOU to be there!
Each year the auction offers a wide range of items that are up for bid in a Live Auction as well as a Silent Auction. Additionally, there is a raffle that provides attendees with an opportunity to get some great vittles and/or treats at area businesses who support our program. All of the proceeds add up to the major funding for the things mentioned above.
So far the event organizers been able to gather some great things…an Albany Power summer scholarship, golf packages at area courses, Luke Bryan tickets at SPAC, a prom package, lots of lacrosse equipment and gear, many great packages from places like Habana Cigars, Brown’s Brewing, the Tri-City ValleyCats and many, many more. You could even get your hands on a custom Cascade R helmet in Colonie colors for as little as $100 ($250 value) as well as custom Colonie gloves ($150 value).
If you know of a business who would want to get some exposure by donating to our auction where folks can bid on their services, please ask them. The Booster Club is a tax-exempt organization. I have attached the request-for-donation letter to this e-mail, which you can print if you need to provide one to a possible donor.
The MOST IMPORTANT THING NEEDED is your ATTENDANCE at the auction. The event is always more fun when there are more folks in the seats, whether they bid on a single item or not. It is a fun night out with family and friends and we need a FULL HOUSE to make the auction as successful as possible. This is NOT an event just for the Varsity or other school teams. This is for ALL lacrosse players and their families. The work of the Booster Club is to support all players from Kindergarten to Graduation. Colonie Lacrosse’s players and their coaches are depending on the support…
Many thanks for your continued support of the Colonie Boys’ Lacrosse Booster Club. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. And please plan to join us on the 18th!
