30TH ANNUAL PLA GOLF CLASSIC
White Manor County Club

Dear Friend of Lacrosse:
On behalf of the Philadelphia Lacrosse Association, I would like to invite you to participate in the 2022 PLA Golf Classic to be held on Monday, October 17th at White Manor Country Club in Malvern, Pennsylvania. We are excited to return to White Manor to celebrate our 30th anniversary event! The course is wonderfully classic and scenic and earned rave reviews from our players.
Your participation in this milestone outing will support the PLA’s nonprofit mission, as a chapter of US Lacrosse, to promote the game of lacrosse in the Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania, particularly our New Start Program, which provides technical and financial assistance to new lacrosse programs. Last year’s PLA Outing at White Manor featured 132 golfers and 58 corporate and individual sponsors and raised over $32,000. The proceeds from the outing help the PLA to do the following:
Support the PIAA Public Lacrosse League and youth and middle programs in Philadelphia and beyond (including Eyekonz, Harlem Lacrosse and others).
Support the ‘HEADstring Project,’ which refurbishes and/or donates sticks for the benefit of programs in the City and Greater Philadelphia (see www.headstringproject.com);
Organize/underwrite the Eastern PA Lacrosse Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies and Annual PLA High School Awards Recognition Banquets;
Conduct/sponsor high school and youth coaches’ clinics; and
Promote diversity and inclusion in the sport.
Attached for your reference is a flyer with more information regarding the event and its festive format. We would welcome your and your company’s participation and sponsorship to help ensure the outing’s success. All sponsors will be recognized prominently in PLA communications.
Please reserve your spot in the outing by completing the attached registration form and returning it to me as soon as possible, but in any event before Wednesday, October 12th. If you are not a golfer or cannot attend the golfing activities, you are welcome to attend the cocktail reception and banquet that begins at 5:45 pm. Space in the outing is limited and registrations will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
As in the past, the PLA Golf Classic promises to be a fully subscribed and memorable one. So please come out, catch up with good friends and join the fun, and, at the same time, help make it possible for even more boys and girls in the City and our larger region to discover the joy of America’s native game. Hope to see you there, thanks for your consideration and continuing support.
