It’s been arguably the game of the year in Section 1 lacrosse for the last eight years or so.
But when John Jay and Yorktown play, it’s more than a game, it’s a community event.
With that in mind, the two communities have worked together to help a special cause.
In the last few years, it’s been Breast Cancer Research.
This year, it will be the battle against ALS.
A weekend of activities and events to benefit the fight against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, will be capped off by the annual varsity boys showdown between the teams, set for 7 p.m. Saturday, April 2, at John Jay High School in Cross River.
Festivities begin on Friday, April 1 at 7 p.m. with “Party for a Cause” at Salem Golf Club in North Salem. The event includes an open bar, cocktail hour, dinner, music and a silent auction. The cost is $125 per person. To purchase tickers, visit outreachals.org.
Prior to Saturday’s game, there will be a “Lacrosse for a Cause” youth clinic starting at 4:30 p.m. The cost is $25 per participant. You can register at www.jjyl.org.
