Dear Friends of Billerica Lacrosse,
The Board of Directors of the Billerica Lacrosse Association is asking for your support in a particularly keen time of need. On Friday, November 9th we are holding a fundraiser to benefit Mike LeClair and his family. Mike, who is a longstanding member of the BLA Board, a youth coach, and more importantly, one of our own in the community we call Billerica Lacrosse, was recently diagnosed with a significant, life-threatening illness. While Mike is a fighter and will no doubt put up a strong battle, his prognosis is uncertain. As such, we would like to raise as much money as we can to assist Mike and his family through this difficult time. His family includes his children Brian, Kyle and Kara all of whom were participants in Billerica Youth Lacrosse as well as in the High School program. The triplets are all currently seniors at BMHS. We kindly ask, in the spirit of our larger lacrosse family, for your deepest generosity as Mike and his family courageously deals with his illness and an uncertain future.
The event will be held on Friday, November 9th at the Holiday Inn in Tewksbury from 7:00 pm to midnight. The Holiday Inn is located just off Route 133, near the junction of I-495 and I-93 at 4 Highwood Drive, Tewksbury, Massachusetts 01876.
Despite the seriousness of the situation, we want this to be an uplifting evening of fun and celebration to recognize Mike and his contributions to youth lacrosse in Billerica. To that end there will be a comedian, a cash bar, silent auction and other activities for entertainment. We are asking $20 per ticket or $200 per table of 10, but we also hope you will dig a bit deeper and make a more substantial donation for the LeClair family. All donations, including the cost of the tickets, are tax deductible. Tickets can be purchased and donations made in advance at our website, www.billericayouthlacrosse.com. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door the night of the event. If you cannot make it to the event but simply wish to make a donation, you can do so on-line, or by sending a check, payable to “BLA” to:
Billerica Lacrosse Association
P.O. Box 456
Billerica, MA 01821
We hope you will be able to join us on November 9th and we thank you in advance for assisting us in helping the LeClair’s. If you have any questions or would like more information about the event and how to make a donation, please contact Scott Einarson at 978-804-9297, or Sue Perrier at 978-375-1424.
