Cardinals to Host Face-Off for a Cause

On Saturday, Feb. 22, the Catholic University men's lacrosse team will be hosting the first Face-Off for a Cause event of 2014. The event will start at 10:00 am with a youth lacrosse clinic in Cardinal Stadium, followed by a collegiate lacrosse double-header. The U.S. Military Academy Black Knights will take on the Furman University Paladins at 12:00 p.m., followed by CUA's Cardinals hosting the Randolph-Macon Yellow Jackets in the second game at 2:30 p.m.

Admission is $5 with proceeds benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project. CUA head coach Brooks Singer has been volunteering his time with the WWP and coordinates the adaptive lacrosse clinics for wounded soldiers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and in the Washington, DC area.

Face-Off for a Cause is an awareness and fundraising lacrosse event that benefits the Wounded Warrior Project. Over the last three years, events have been held around the country, showcasing match-ups between numerous top NCAA, MCLA, and high school teams, and have raised thousands of dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project.
