Sticks for Soldiers is a non-profit charity with its mission to raise money to support future needs of severely-wounded soldiers and promote youth awareness of military service. The organization has raised nearly $900,000 in donations for wounded servicemen and their families since its inception in 2006. The Florida tournament is a community event, where game officials donate their
time, parents from Cardinal Mooney Catholic High school volunteer their time, and the players are provided the opportunity to give thanks, provide support and raise awareness for our service members.
