Lake Zurich High School will host a day of lacrosse games Saturday, April 27, between the Lake Zurich and Fenwick High School girls varsity, JV and freshman teams at the Lake Zurich High School stadium field, where teams for both schools will wear special uniforms in honor of the occasion. Admission proceeds and half of a split-the-pot raffle will go to the AHA. In addition, Fegan is soliciting local residents for the names of heart disease survivors or victims, who will be honored at the game.

"We decided to host the fundraiser game as a fun and creative way to raise awareness of heart disease among young men and women, raise money for the AHA, and honor and remember those who are heart disease survivors, as well as those who have passed from heart disease," said Fegan, varsity girls lacrosse coach at Lake Zurich. "We liked the idea of tying it to a day of lacrosse because it allows two schools and two communities to be involved. And it made sense to host the game against Fenwick since my sister Maggie Fegan is the JV coach there."

Katie Fegan said she hopes the event becomes an annual staple for the Lake Zurich community.

"This is the first year we're doing this, so we hope it's a great success," she said. "We're looking forward to continuing and growing the event in future years."
