Bay Village Lacrosse Club will sponsor its annual “Football Watch Party” fundraiser featuring the Ohio State vs. Rutgers game on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 7:30-10:30 p.m. at the Copper Cup, 680 Dover Center Road in Westlake.

Event proceeds benefit BVLC to help fund the group’s capital equipment drive, support Bay Village boys’ and girls’ lacrosse programs and provide lacrosse scholarships to student athletes in need.

"We now have about 250 students participating in Bay Village lacrosse programs," said Charlie MacMillan, President of BVLC. "In the past five years, we have seen the development of girls’ varsity and JV teams at the high school, along with added teams for girls ages fifth-through eighth-grade. The boys’ program has expanded to include third- and fourth-graders. In addition, for the past three summers, BVLC also helped host skills camps for players, K-3."

In addition to football, lacrosse will be highlighted at the event. The BVLC watch party will include a Chinese raffle featuring items ranging from lacrosse gear to donations from The Force, Xcelerate, Burning River Lacrosse and other area merchants. A Lax Bag filled with a variety of adult beverages will be raffled off at the event. Door prizes will also be given out during the game.

“The annual BVLC Watch Party is a casual, football-themed party that parents and community members have enjoyed for the past several years in the spirit of supporting all these growing lacrosse programs in Bay,” added MacMillan. “We are looking forward to another fun and successful night!”

Tickets for the adults-only BVLA “Football Watch Party” are $30 per person. Price includes beer, wine, pop and heavy appetizers. For more information or to purchase tickets, call Charlie MacMillan at 440-227-5430 or email
