Colin Cassidy Tournament Raises More Than $25K

from press release

DENVER – NDP Lacrosse, Team Genesis Lacrosse Club, the Colorado Mammoth and the Denver Outlaws announced today that the Colin L. Cassidy Memorial Lacrosse Tournament raised more than $25,000. That amount exceeds the initial goal of $15,000 set forth by the NDP and Team Genesis. Held on Saturday, September 12 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, the event hosted 72 teams across 11 divisions and carried a policy of “suggested donations” with all participants.
 
The Colorado Lacrosse Foundation (the Colorado chapter of US Lacrosse) will receive the majority of the proceeds from the tournament, and will oversee the creation of college scholarships which will benefit local lacrosse players. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the Edgewater Fire Department Foundation and the Trinity United Methodist Church.
 
“Chris and I were overwhelmed by the sheer size of the event and the generosity of everyone who played, volunteered and donated,” said Sara Cassidy, Colin’s mother. “This event was a true testament to the amazing people in the lacrosse community. Our entire family is deeply grateful.”
 
Colin Cassidy, son of Chris and Sara Cassidy, drowned in Vail on June 28 while attending the Vail Shootout lacrosse tournament with his family.
