The four regular season series games between provincial rivals the Edmonton Rush and Calgary Roughnecks will promise a showdown of hard core lacrosse. The divisional battle this year has a new addition to the overall winning of the series, “Homes by Avi Battle of Alberta Lacrosse Cup.”
The team to win the four regular season series games will secure rights in the standings to also a monetary donation. The winning team will hoist the “Homes by Avi Battle of Alberta Lacrosse Cup” Saturday, April 20 on Crystal Glass Field at Rexall Place following the final regular season series game between the Rush and Roughnecks. Additionally, the winning team will have the honour of presenting a monetary donation to the KidsSport charity in their city. (In the event of a series split is it decided by total goals for and against)
Thirty-five years of successful home building is a testament to Homes by Avi’s reputation and the quality of their products. Building strong communities is as much at the heart of their business as building dream homes for their customers. Their efforts to give back to the communities in which they build are unending. They are committed to a mandate of social responsibility.
They have offices in both Calgary and Edmonton, so for them, the Battle of Alberta is as much about business as it is about sport. Sponsoring an event like this gives them the opportunity to generate excitement and a fun, competitive spirit among the two cities, as well as help out local charities.
