The 8th grade Somerset Hills Lacrosse Club boys teams will take the field with eight other teams from around the area and 7th and 8th grade girls teams will also be at play.

This is the longest running event for Bryan’s Dream Foundation started in 2006 by the SHLC teammates of Bryan T. Opremcak, a Bernards Township 7th grader after he passed away from a brain tumor. To date, the highly successful and well attended tournament has raised over $150,000 for the Foundation, which provides support and assistance to children and families affected by pediatric brain tumors. The Foundation provides services to benefit children in approximately twenty-five hospitals across the country including local hospitals such as Children’s Hospital of New York, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Cohen Children’s Medical Center and NYU.
