Loveland Lightning Lacrosse is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that solely exists to support Thompson Valley High School Lacrosse and various youth events. LLL is not affiliated with Thompson School District or Thompson Valley High School. Any fund raising efforts done with or on behalf of LLL, will remain within the LLL organization. Fund raising balances from graduating seniors will stay in place to support younger players/siblings. Any remaining balances after graduation will be donated to the LLL organization, player's choice, either "General Fund" or "Elaine McGhie Memorial Scholarship Fund". Continued fund raising support for LLL and the growth of lacrosse in Loveland is always welcome after graduation.
LLL would like to make fund raising as easy as possible for our
players and their families.
KING SOOPER'S RELOADABLE GIFT CARDS:
We offer King Sooper's/City Market Reloadable gift cards. Purchase as many cards for $5 (preloaded with $5 that can be used at your first purchase), then load your card at any King Sooper's store location (or customer service desk) for any amount up to $500. Use the loaded monies to purchase your groceries or fuel at any King Sooper's, Kroger, Fred Meyer, Ralph, Fry's and Fry's Marketplace, Dillon's, Smith's Food and Drug, City Market, QFC, Food for Less, Owen's, Foods Co, Hilanders, Payless Super Markets, Calla-Bella's, Baker's, JayC, Fred Meyer's Jewelers or Littman and Barklay Jewelers (Loaf and Jug does NOT accept these cards). Family/friends that live out-of-town/state can use at any of these retailers as well. For every purchase put on the card(s) associated with your player's account, King Sooper's will deposit 5% directly into your player's fund raising account. Spring lacrosse dues (8th grade players are welcome to start early) are historically $250 (but can change with increased costs to the club including field usage, coaches salaries, away game meals, etc). When the card is empty, just give it to the cashier before you start your purchase and reload for any amount again. This is a year round fund raiser. As long as you use the card (s), your player(s) will continue to benefit. There are no hidden fees or extra costs affiliated with this program. If card remains unused (not loaded with monies) for 90 days, it will no longer be a valid card and 5% will not be deposited into your players account (even though you can still load monies onto it).
