The Danny Barnes Memorial Game

My name is Alec Tocco and I am a senior at Rondout Valley High School. I am a member of the Rondout Valley Varsity Lacrosse team as well as a member of the National Honor Society. Every year we must conduct an individual project that positively impacts the local community. This year my group members and I will be organizing a Headstrong event during our annual rivalry game against neighboring Kingston High School. Headstrong is a foundation that raises money for cancer research and awareness. To support this cause both teams will be wearing lime green shoelaces and chin straps purchased from Headstrong. Also I will be purchasing shirts for the game and all the proceeds will also go to the Headstrong Foundation. This particular color green represents the losing battle Nicholas Colleluori, the founder of Headstrong, fought with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.One method of fundraising for this cause, as well as to show solidarity between the two competing schools, is to outfit both teams with matching lime green laces and chin straps. We are looking for
sponsorships in the form of monetary donations to cover the cost of these items. In an effort to raise as
much money for this cause as possible we will also conduct, in conjunction with the Kingston program, a
number of other fundraising efforts during the game including gate proceeds and donation cans. There will also be a booth providing information about this affliction and the efforts underway to defeat this disease. We hope you will be able to help us reach our financial need to purchase these items.  Thank you in advance for any consideration. Every little bit will help us make this a successful event. Hope you can make this event!

Yours in Lacrosse,

Alec Tocco #25
