Shooting Stars
Games for a cause

May 16, 2012

Lacrosse teams from Clarkston and surrounding areas joined together on Saturday for the annual Game for a Cure.

Money raised from T-shirts, bake sales and donations went to cancer research at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Pontiac.

The event raised $14,000.

"It is terrific," said Brian Kaminskas, head coach for the Clarkston Boys Varsity Lacrosse A team. "We did $9,000 last year. We sold over 1,000 T-shirts this year. It is something need to see the community come out even in the bad weather and the rain. Not just Clarkston but surrounding communities had a strong desire to be involved."

The event also included youth tournaments.
