Saturday, April 16, 2022 - What a great event on Saturday hosted by our McIntosh Interact Club! All proceeds from the event ~(~$2000) were being split between the Boys’ and Girls’ Lacrosse teams and our Interact Club who had already committed all funds raised to Leap for Literacy! All books donated by attendees (~100) will be donated to local charitable groups like Bloom. It was a great turnout – and especially exciting to see the GIRLS win!
