From past charity:

To say that we have already benefited from our experience with the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee would be an understatement.  The committee and its “friends in the community” have shown Lawrence Youth Football and its family of friends what wonderful things that can happen when everyone works together for a common cause.  The effort put forth by your group is an amazing thing to see and ultimately be a part of.  We are forever grateful and thankful to be a benefactor of the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee." —Bret
