Your donations support the Village Lions Rugby Football Club, a New York City-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that fosters the sport of rugby in organized team play and participates in league competition and tournaments sanctioned by USA Rugby. The Lions are celebrating their 25th anniversary as a club in 2014. Founded in 1989 in Greenwich Village with a mix of internationals and homegrown players, the club has members ranging from former Eagles to current Olympic hopefuls to social members keeping the tradition and spirit of the Lions alive. The Lions field three sides (Men, Women, and Social/Old Boys) and host two annual tournaments, Four Leaf 15s and Hell Gate 7s.
A portion of the proceeds will also go toward supporting The Bowery Mission, a charity serving homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879. This year, The Bowery Mission provided more than 382,400 meals to men, women, and children; 93,700 nights of shelter; and 46,800 articles of clothing; as well as showers, haircuts, and expert medical and optometric care. Each meal and every night of shelter are invitations to its residential recovery programs, in which lives are transformed from hopelessness to hope. Last year, the Mission’s residential programs served nearly 400 men and women who are regaining sobriety, reconnecting with family and faith, pursuing educational goals, and preparing for work and independent living. The Mission’s summer camp served nearly 1,100 at-risk youth from underserved New York City neighborhoods. Learn more about its work at Bowery.org.
