BENEFITING: The USO
Team USO was developed in response to volunteers looking for new ways to support the troops and their families. As a whole Team USO is made up of all kinds of athletes who share a common interest in supporting our troops and their families...UNTIL EVERY ONE COMES HOME.
Team USO Lax specifically represents a group of extremely proud Americans who have various affiliations with men and women who have valiantly served and currently serve our country. This year with the hopes of raising awareness and funds for the USO's efforts we have decided to compete in three 2016 lacrosse tournaments as Team USO Lax.
The tournament sites and dates are as follows:
- WATS (War at the Shore) Tournament - Brick, NJ (July 30th-31st, 2016)
- Surf-N-Turf Tournament - Boston, MA (August 13th-14th, 2016)
- Laxtoberfest Tournament - Annapolis, MD (October 1st-2nd, 2016)
We are a highly competitive bunch on the field and with your support we hope to be just as competitive off the field in exceeding our targeted goals.
In addition to our fundraising efforts we will also be securing tents on each of the tournament grounds where we will be distributing public relations material with the purpose of spreading the USO's inspiring message and giving it the exposure it so rightfully deserves at these events.
Many of our service men and women are leaving behind spouses, teens, children, and parents. Others, serving in forward operating bases in war-torn Afghanistan, are looking for any comfort from home or way to unwind. We're competing as Team USO Lax to support these brave men and women. But we can't do it alone. We need your help. Please join us in supporting the USO.
The USO has been supporting service members and their families wherever they are serving for over 70 years. Whether it's connecting deployed GIs to their families, providing a place to rest and relax during a moment off the front line, welcoming back returning service members with arms waving and applause thanking them for their sacrifices, the USO makes it happen. Your generous gift will be used efficiently, as nearly 90% of resources spent go directly to the USO programs to support those in uniform and their families.
Please support these brave men and women. . . and their families. . . by making a donation to the USO through the link provided. Each and every penny makes a difference in the lives of those who put their lives on the line each and every day to protect our freedoms.
