HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (Oct. 20, 2010) - The second annual Nick Colleluori Women's Lacrosse Classic was held on September 25 at Hofstra University and the event was a success for the second straight year as it raised over $42,000 to help bring awareness for the HEADstrong Foundation and blood cancer research.

There were 15 teams in this year's event as Hofstra, Adelphi, CW Post, Bentley, Iona, La Salle, Long Island University, Stonehill, Temple, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and a pair of post-collegiate teams (New York Athletic Club and Long Island Squids) competed in the all-day tournament.

Highlighting the day was a speech prior to the Hofstra versus New Hampshire game by Cheryl Colleluori talking about the HEADstrong Foundation, her son Nick and what this event means to her family.
