Join us for a night of lacrosse! The fastest sport on two feet is coming to the Space Coast. Lacrosse is the oldest sport in North America. This event is a fundraiser for both lacrosse clubs, as both universities only partially sponsor both lacrosse teams. Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the U.S. 

Please bring a canned good donation our two for our "Lax4Good" food drive. Austin Altevogt and Joseph Caporicci (two Brevard students) , co-founders wanted to help stock public high school pantries. All food collected is donated to students in transition (some homeless) who may go without food! You will receive a free raffle ticket for each canned good donated.
