Harlem Lacrosse will stage its annual benefit and honor Jim Brown Thursday at the Annual Benefit at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City.It’s not just about creating opportunities, Joel Censer, chief program officer for Harlem Lacrosse, writes about the organization’s work in five cities. It’s about creating a culture.
Censer says, “…. On Thursday, legendary athlete Jim Brown — arguably the greatest lacrosse player ever — will accept our Trailblazer Award and be honored for paving the way for a generation of Harlem Lacrosse alums to follow in his footsteps. Current lacrosse stars like Paul Rabil, Alex Aust, Casey and Ryan Powell, Myles Jones and Jordan Wolf will attend as VIP guests and to lend their support. We’ll have more than 20 Division I colleges coaches in attendance who have helped spread the word.
As much as we believe in local support, we know it takes a village, and we’re proud to have the lacrosse community pushing us to achieve and our students to believe. We hope you consider making the trip to Chelsea Piers to celebrate with us.”
