N.Y. - The third annual Nick Colleluori Women's Lacrosse Classic was held on
September 24 at Hofstra University and the event was a success for the third
straight year as it raised nearly $34,000 to help bring awareness for the
HEADstrong Foundation and blood cancer research.
In its three years, the tournament at Hofstra has now raised over $105,000.
Plans are already in place to continue the event next year.
There were 13 teams in this year's event as Hofstra, Adelphi, Central
Connecticut State, Connecticut, C.W. Post, Iona, Johns Hopkins, La Salle, Long
Island, Monmouth, Vermont, New York Athletic Club and Team HEADstrong (Hofstra
lacrosse alumnae) competed in the all-day tournament.
Highlighting the day was a speech prior to the Hofstra versus Johns Hopkins
game by Cheryl Colleluori talking about the HEADstrong Foundation, her son Nick
and what this event means to family.
