Major League All-Star jerseys are available to fans for a limited time through the annual MLL All-Star Jersey Auction. Don’t miss your chance to own an All-Star jersey worn by the MLL All-Stars team during their game against the US National Team on Thursday July 8.
Bidding on the jerseys has already begun and will continue until Saturday July 18th at 9 PM ET. The highest bidder will walk away with an autographed limited edition jersey.
Following the game, the players autographed their specially designed jerseys that are now being auctioned off with all proceeds going to the 2010 All-Star Charity, MetroLacrosse, the largest urban lacrosse program in the United States.
The New Balance Foundation has agreed to match the funds from the auction to double the amount donated to MetroLacrosse.
MetroLacrosse is a non-profit organization whose mission is to address the social and economic disparities that exist in urban settings by inspiring personal, educational and athletic success among urban youth and teens. It has become the largest urban lacrosse program in the country serving more than 700 youth and teens in Boston, Chelsea, Brockton and Lawrence. MetroLacrosse offers year-round programs that use the lure of lacrosse and the team sports environment to cultivate positive personal and academic achievement. The proceeds will benefit MetroLacrosse’s efforts to expand its urban lacrosse program to other major cities around the country.
Major League Lacrosse and the players are happy to help support this great organization by literally taking the jerseys off their backs and autographing them on the field.
You can help support MetroLacrosse too by bidding on one of these limited edition jerseys at http://stores.ebay.com/Major-League-Lacrosse.
Bid today for your chance to win an authentic jersey and the gratitude of urban teens across the country.
