Empire State Cup Partners with Team 24

Carthage- Empire State Cup is pleased to announce a new partnership with Team 24. Each uniform color this year will represent a different type of cancer awareness. With the help of Lacrossewear, Empire State Cup & Team 24 have customized each uniform to help combat and raise awareness for several different types in this years tournament.

Team 24 was founded in 2011 by Central Boys director Kirk A Ventiquattro and his sons Tony & Mario. In the summer of 2011 Kirk was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer, and founded the non-profit as a partner with the American Cancer Society to help raise cancer awareness. Since its inception the organization has raised and donated more than $25,000 to the cause to help beat this disease. Empire State Cup will donate a portion of all proceeds from each team towards each cause and Team 24’s efforts.
