Volunteers Needed for AHR Charity Event

The Leahy Family Foundation is looking for volunteers to help raise money for charity and take part in one of the biggest lacrosse tournaments in the county – July 8 and 9. This will be an excellent opportunity to work up a sweat by giving back to the community. Young people can also gain volunteer experience needed for scholarship applications and resumes by joining in the experience. While we welcome students and families, we ask that any volunteers be over age 16, as volunteers will be cooking and serving hot food.
The Pipe City Lacrosse Festival is held on the American Hotel grounds and will feature 225 teams playing for nearly 25,000 spectators. The Leahy Family we will be providing the drinks and concessions for the entire tournament and all money raised will benefit worthy charities like Boys & Girls Club of Lake County, Gateway for Cancer Research, and the NSSRA.
The event requires more than 100 people between the hours of 7am and 6pm on Saturday (7/8) and Sunday (7/9). To sign up for a shift please contact Paula Motzny at 847.743.1996 or
