Jeff loved lacrosse.  In June of each year, Rochester Kids holds the Jeff Milano-Johnson Memorial Lacrosse Tournament, a regional lacrosse tournament, which serves as its largest fundraiser.  Rochester Kids also supports ROCE6 whose aim is to help kids in the city by introducing them and encouraging them to play the game of lacrosse.

Rochester Kids sponsors an annual lacrosse tournament to honor Jeff’s memory.  The tournament is the only fundraiser for Rochester Kids which provides scholarships to Rochester youth,  support of city lacrosse, a city-suburban youth partnership called RocKIDSConnect and bereavement support services. The tournament is NOT YOUR TYPICAL lacrosse tournament. It is a festival with a silent auction, a raffle, food and vendors. With Jeff’s love for the game of lacrosse and his passion for life,  Jeff’s family and friends believe that establishing this tournament/fundraiser is a fitting tribute to Jeff’s  legacy. The Tournament, like Rochester Kids,  is organized by volunteers many of them new to the lacrosse world.  Many of the typically “paid” participants, e.g. the referees, the medic, the photographer, the vendors… donate their time or proceeds to Rochester kids.

This year’s annual tournament is Sunday, June 3rd at Total Sports Experience in Gates.  It is open to Boys 7/8 and 9/10 Grades.  Here is 2018 Tourney Packet  containing information about the tournament and registration. For additional information contact John Littwitz at
