This is the invitation letter from the Long Island Metropolitan Lacrosse Foundation President on behalf of the City Lax Program and Gala.

Dear Friend,

I’d like to invite you to the 8th annual CityLax Gala, a benefit to be held on Thursday March 6, 2014 at the Yale Club in New [lacrosse] City.

Along with spreading the game of lacrosse throughout NYC, their goal is to use the sport and its network of players, coaches, and alumni to help motivated young men and women student athletes achieve success in high school, college and their professional careers. It is well known that participation in team sports is a teaching mechanism that helps students understand the value of taking charge of their education, living a healthier lifestyle and developing life skills for successful college and career advancement.

Before CityLax started in 2004, there were only six public high school lacrosse programs throughout three of the New [lacrosse] City boroughs. Since then, CityLax has helped fund the start-up of 32 new girls’ and boys’ varsity teams throughout all five boroughs. This year, the organization will be initiating thirteen additional PSAL programs.

To learn more about the event and to purchase tickets, make a donation, or purchase an ad in the 2014 Gala program, go to citylaxgala2014.eventbrite.com or to find out more about CityLax, visit citylax.org, or check out the brief overview in this Back of THE CAGE thread. Of course, any help in spreading the word about the CityLax fundraiser would also be appreciated.

I really hope you will be able to attend. In addition, please consider making a contribution to CityLax to enable them to continue this important work. If you have any questions or would like some further information, please let me know.

---------

Please make checks and other donations out to CityLax, Inc.
and mail to 65 West 85th Street, New [lacrosse], NY 10024
All contributions and program ads are fully tax-deductible.

The non tax-deductible portion of each ticket purchase is to be determined.

CityLax is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization

Not sure if most folks have been to the City lately. I'd like to shed a little light on the state of the city schools. Over the last many years there has been a building boom. Not all, but many, many schools have been completely rebuilt with beautiful buildings and facilities. Most of these schools also have beautiful turf fields as well. It is my understanding that much of this construction was funded through NYS capital improvement grants. Which is great, every kid should have a nice school to attend.
Interestingly, I have had the opportunity to also see some schools out here on LI. The buildings in many cases are 40 or 50 years old. Haven't been updated in years. The fields are terrible, with many "wealthy" districts still without turf fields. These same districts are also cutting teachers and staff left and right just to stay solvent. One very "wealthy" district in western Nassau was recently highlighted in Newsday as being at financial risk. Many other districts have gone to three lax teams from six just a few years ago. The state of our school systems and their lax programs are the worst they've been in 20 plus years. In addition, our property taxes are through the roof. $20, 30k, 40k per year for the those called wealthy.
Further, our income tax money is sent to Albany and redistributed away from LI by the continued cuts in State education aid. This is one of the very reasons our schools are in the condition they are.
With all that said, we are now being called on to support the growth of lax in the City?
Should we not be doing fund raising for our districts here on LI that are cutting school lax back to one team in MS. Many districts are now down to 12-15 boys per grade left playing lax because of the cuts. One coach for one team for 7th and 8th grade. Just one man's opinion, but I think we need a whole lot of fund raising right here on LI. Charity starts at home folks.

What is wrong with you? You are talking about turf fields and building conditions. None of that is true. This is to support inner city kids who can't afford equipment, camps or clinics that you probably don't even think about for your kid. Also this is about giving kids the opportunity to learn about a great sport which you take for granted because you live on long island. How many sticks have you bought your kids over the years? Helmets? Gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads? Are poor kids not allowed to play lacrosse bc they can't afford those things?

You are seriously disturbed. We should start a fundraiser for you to get some therapy

None of it true? I only wish it wasn't. It is 100% true. Where in the post did I say kids shouldn't play lacrosse, those are your words not mine. Further, ask yourself this question? How are the same kids in these schools able to play football? The schools they attend provide all of the equipment. Also, if you went on the organizations website you would learn that their mission is to help fund the addition of lax to SCHOOLS in the City. You will also see those very kids they've helped playing on turf fields. You really should do your homework before you spew your mindless vitriol.

Your response to the previous post reminds me of the liberal response to any differing opinion they have.
His post is dead on accurate as I live in one of those "wealthy" districts on L.I.. Our school buildings are falling down, our grass field is a disgrace and we are losing educational and athletic programs every year...all this with $18,000/year taxes. WE need the state to EQUALLY fund our schools. The inner city lax fundraising is a great thing to give those in need an opportunity otherwise out of reach but the funding should NOT go to the schools.
Now......try not to be so nasty and immature if your opinion differs.

Stop running your mouth on here. We'll worry about our towns. You worry about yours... If your so benevolent, open your check book and stroke a check for $10 grand to this organization. I'll help out in my own town. Plenty of wealthy people in the City to help fund this cause. Just ask the new Mayor... He'll tell you.

This is to support inner city kids who can't afford equipment, camps or clinics that you probably don't even think about for your kid. Also this is about giving kids the opportunity to learn about a great sport which you take for granted because you live on long island. How many sticks have you bought your kids over the years? Helmets? Gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads? Are poor kids not allowed to play lacrosse bc they can't afford those things?

You are seriously disturbed. We should start a fundraiser for you to get some therapy


Your response to the previous post reminds me of the liberal response to any differing opinion they have.
His post is dead on accurate as I live in one of those "wealthy" districts on L.I.. Our school buildings are falling down, our grass field is a disgrace and we are losing educational and athletic programs every year...all this with $18,000/year taxes. WE need the state to EQUALLY fund our schools. The inner city lax fundraising is a great thing to give those in need an opportunity otherwise out of reach but the funding should NOT go to the schools.
Now......try not to be so nasty and immature if your opinion differs.


The funds aren't going to the schools for fields or windows. It's to fund lacrosse teams. If you want turf and a paint job pass the hat in your town. Otherwise stfu.


Stop running your mouth on here. We'll worry about our towns. You worry about yours... If your so benevolent, open your check book and stroke a check for $10 grand to this organization. I'll help out in my own town. Plenty of wealthy people in the City to help fund this cause. Just ask the new Mayor... He'll tell you.


This event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for a great cause. I hope your charity car wash for the new turf is just as successful.
