To generate funds for the creation of a children’s book, STEP UP Lacrosse Charity will hold a fundraiser at Brian Boru Irish Restaurant and Pub on Thursday, March 1, from 5:00pm to 10:00pm. A motivational children’s book, “Charlie STEPs UP to Lacrosse” comes with a lacrosse playbook of offensive and defensive lessons, as well as inspirational songs. Specifically, funds will aid in the creation of the book, including costs for the illustrations, printing, shipping and an ISBN (international standard book number).

STEP UP Lacrosse Charity is a nonprofit dedicated to providing disadvantaged and underprivileged youth the unique opportunity to learn the sport of lacrosse from the most experienced players in the world. Donations will result in clinics, camps, equipment and more.

“This has been a longtime passion project and dream of mine to bring two of my passions — writing and lacrosse — together so that I can give back to the sport that has given me so much in my life,” said Lauren Burke Meyer, author of “Charlie STEPs UP to Lacrosse.”

“Along with the STEP UP Lacrosse owners, Becky Clip Cassilly and Jenny Vela, we’re extremely grateful to Brian Boru for graciously hosting the fundraising event and serving as a hub to bring the local community together in support of this mission,” she said.

Patrons of the fundraising event can order from a special three-course menu that is $25 per person, and the restaurant will donate $10 per meal to the STEP UP Lacrosse Charity. Kids meal options will be available for $10 each with $3 per meal going to charity. Vegetarian and gluten-free entrée options will be offered. Anyone is welcome to attend the event, and reservations are strongly recommended, especially for larger groups. Reservations can be made by calling Brian Boru at 410-975-2678.

Additionally, there will be a 50/50 raffle, as well as other raffles available from brands and local businesses including Rockwell Fitness, The Cottage, Kicked Up Fitness, Rams Head On Stage, Squisito Pizza & Pasta, Nike Lacrosse, New Era, Burt’s Bees and Clorox.

For more information about the event or sponsoring a raffle, contact Lauren Burke Meyer at or call 410-949-6251. If you can’t attend the event but still want to support the cause, you can make a check out to Step Up Lacrosse Charity and mail it to 609 Captain John Brice Way, Annapolis, MD 21401.
