Making their yearly contribution to the fight against blood-related cancers, some of the top lacrosse teams in the nation will gather tomorrow for the sixth annual Price Modern "Lacrosse for Leukemia" Fall Invitational Tournament at McDonogh School in Owings Mills.

Johns Hopkins and Syracuse, NCAA final four participants last spring, will be joined in the tournament by host Loyola, Towson, UMBC, North Carolina, Georgetown, Albany, Air Force, Colgate, Butler, Quinnipiac, Drexel and Division III's Washington College.

The event, which has raised more than $545,000 over five years for research and patient services, will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Admission for the day will be $5 per person - but no more than $20 per car - and parking will be available at the Owings Mills Corporate Campus Center. Gates open at 8:30 a.m.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Maryland Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, whose mission is to find cures for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
