SIX NATIONS — Closing on April 8 of this year for the summer season, the LKS Memorial Foundation is accepting applications for those registering into the Six Nations Minor Lacrosse Association for the summer season, to provide families lacrosse sponsorships.
The LKS Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization created by the family and to honour Linda K. Smith, June 1957 – June 2020, who passed away very suddenly at the age of 62.
Linda was an avid lacrosse fan who attended many lacrosse games, and always supported the teams by purchasing programs and 50/50 ticket
The eligibility for the sponsorship includes a desire to play lacrosse, financial disadvantage for extracurricular activities and low to medium income. The application is available on the top right of the LKS Memorial website.
“We are keeping her memory and the love for the game alive by covering registration costs to eligible children and youth in our community of Six Nations and surrounding area,” reads the LKS Memorial Foundation website.
Those interested can fill out an application and email it to LKSMemorialFoundation@gmail.com or call to arrange a pick-up or drop-off. Those interested can also be nominated—a letter must come from a third party nominating a family, child or youth stating why they can benefit from the LKSMF sponsorship.
