HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. – Hastings High School boys lacrosse coach Drew Wendol and his Gargoyle Athletics & On Track Sports Center will host the Lacrosse Toys for Tots Leake & Watts Charity Event on Nov. 25 in Tarrytown.

Wendol, who also plays adult lacrosse in several leagues, said the group will offer lacrosse clinics and collect contributions. Gargoyle Athletics will deliver new toys and other gifts to less fortunate youngsters ages 11-18 at the Yonkers-based Leake & Watts Residential Treatment Center for at-risk children.

The event will be held at On Track Sports Center, 29 S. Depot in Tarrytown, beginning at noon for boys and girls kindergarten through second grade, followed by clinics for third- and fourth-graders (1-2 p.m.), fifth- and sixth-graders (2-3 p.m.) and seventh- and eighth-graders (3-4 p.m.).

These is no cost for the clinics, but each person is asked to bring an unwrapped toy, article of clothing, gift card or book. There also will be a 50/50 raffle to benefit Leake & Watts Services Inc.

Participants must bring their own lacrosse equipment, and there are limited loaners for those who do not have equipment. Those who cannot attend may donate to the cause by dropping off a gift for Toys for Tots at the On Track Sports Center.

Those interested may Register before Thanksgiving at www.ontracksport.com or 914-909-2974. For more information, email Wendol at wendolworldwide@optonline.net or call 914-373-9114, or Brian Smith at bss1181@yahoo.com or 914-629-7180.
