Fellow GLOA Refs,
I recently received a very nice thank you note from Laura Mallonee (Mother of Ron Mallonee) for our continued work on the Ron Mallonee Fund (RMF). I wanted to share the note with all of you. You can view the note here.
We will conduct a raffle at this end of year GLOA party (Friday, May 13th) once again to raise additional funds to support the RMF and the Kevin Moore Fund (KMF). GLOA has awarded over 40 camp scholarships to deserving high school players through the RMF since 2005. You can learn more about our two GLOA Charities on the GLOA Memorial page.
Our GLOA Awards committee is soliciting items for this raffle. We are specifically looking for electronics, vacation related items, sporting tickets, sports memorabilia, golf items, restaurant gift certificates, auto accessories, professional services, etc.
Jeff Greene has already secured 2 sets of AirTran roundtrip airline tickets donated for the raffle, along with ground transportation, plus complimentary hotel rooms from The Ritz Carlton Hotels, W Hotels, and Renaissance Hotels. So there will be some excellent prizes up for grabs in this raffle!
Here is how you can help. The GLOA Awards Committee has developed a form letter that GLOA members can use to solicit donations from businesses.
Please download the letter at

We encourage all GLOA members to use this letter and talk with some folks you know who maybe able to help us. Remember, the Georgia Lacrosse Foundation (GLF) can write you (or a business) a letter stating the dollar value of the donation for tax purposes.
If you or your company would like to donate items for the raffle, please contact Tom Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org, 404-245-7711) or Bob Foster (email@example.com or 678-770-1485) for more information.
I hope all of you can get involved with the RMF/KMF and support this worthy cause.
