The lacrosse program seeks fundraising help to keep up its operational costs, and invites the public to the Marina Del Rey Film Festival for a special screening of "Crooked Arrows." Donations made will go toward the program.
The screening is Saturday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Courtyard Marriot at 13400 Maxella Ave., Marina Del Rey. There is a limited seating and suggested donations of $20.
Previous Pali High LAX coach Peter Greene is a parent of a junior on the boys' squad this year, and is the organizer of the event.
"We're a needy public school," he said in an email. "The lacrosse program is primary funded through parent donations, yet the cost of running a successful program is staggering."
Greene said the team hopes to raise a couple of thousand dollars, adding that it will benefit the team across the board.
"The money will go into the general operating fund that pays for everything from coaches salaries to uniforms to transportation to games," Greene said. He noted they are just finishing a fundraiser with and will probably have to do some more fundraising later in the year.
According to IMDB, "Crooked Arrows" is about a Native American lacrosse team making its way through a prep school league tournament. J. Todd Harris and a special guest should be on hand Saturday. A video of the trailer is attached.
Green said anyone interested in donating or learning more about the Pali High boys and girls LAX programs can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
