Eighteen of the top-ranked girls’ teams in the country from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are competed Saturday in the 3rd Annual Gains For Brains Lax Showcase at Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.
The event raises money to benefit the Making Headway Foundation, which is dedicated to the care and comfort of children with brain and spinal cord tumors. The event was founded two years ago by MSG Varsity’s Andrew (Raff) Rappaport, who wanted to create a fun way to raise money for a needy cause.
