Cockeysville, MD - Cockeysville-based Lax World, a local retailer of boys and girls lacrosse equipment, and Baltimore-based STX, a global sporting goods leader, announced they will host a lacrosse shopping day on Saturday, April 2, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Lax World in Timonium (2060 B York Road, Lutherville-Timonium, MD 21093) to benefit Charm City Youth Lacrosse, an organization that provides Baltimore City elementary and middle school underserved girls and boys.
During the event, Charm City Youth Lacrosse will be accepting donations of gently used lacrosse equipment, excluding helmets and footwear. Participants who donate gently used lacrosse equipment will receive 15 percent off their purchase of STX equipment during the event. “We are extremely excited to be partnering with Lax World for this shopping day,” says Artie Spruill, executive director of Charm City Youth Lacrosse. “Donations of gently used gear go a long way to support our Baltimore City youth and offer more opportunities for children to play this great game of lacrosse.”
Representatives from Lax World and STX will be available throughout the event to help fit youth lacrosse players in the proper equipment sizes, provide information on the newest STX gear and answer questions about the sport. Participants are invited to demo STX lacrosse equipment, including the STX Duel face-off system for boys and the STX Exult 500 complete stick for girls, among other equipment.
Frank Barbarino, President of Lax World, says “Charm City Youth Lacrosse is an organization that we are proud to partner with. What they accomplish is important to our community. Lacrosse must thrive at the grass roots level to inspire the growth of Lacrosse. Lax World is looking forward to long term partnership with Charm City Youth Lacrosse. Having our friends at STX join us at this event acknowledges how much the benefit of our city.”
