SRQLAX Giving Challenge Today at Noon – Special Matching for Next 24 Hours


Dear Friends,

We are very excited to once again be taking part in this year’s Giving Challenge – an exciting 24-hour online giving event that connects 700+ nonprofit organizations with passionate donors and community members to support diverse causes and create enduring impact in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties.

From noon on April 26 through noon on April 27, your gift of up to $100.00 will be matched by the generosity of the Patterson Foundation, in cooperation with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.

Your support will help us to level the playing field for all Sarasota County student athletes by bringing sanctioned varsity lacrosse to all Sarasota County public high schools. It will help us to implement and support affordable and accessible youth programs across our county to give all our youth, regardless of where they live or where they attend school, access to the fastest growing team sport in our country.

After successfully launching high school lacrosse programs at Riverview, Sarasota, and Venice High Schools, we have begun an integrated development program to bring lacrosse to the Booker schools; including life and career information for these students. Ultimately, we will create a platform for varsity lacrosse at Booker High School within the next 3 years.

Please save the date: April 26 at noon through April 27 at noon.
You can go to to learn more and donate by selecting SRQLAX from the organizations listed there, or use this link:

Thank you for your continued support!
