RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Go shopping and help a Ridgewood teen bring lacrosse to at-risk kids abroad.

The Racefaster Store in Ridgewood on Nov. 10 is donating 20 percent of its sales to Samantha Pickholz, 13, a Benjamin Franklin Middle School lacrosse player. The sales event runs from 6-8 p.m.

The goalie plays with the Building Blocks Lacrosse Club and was invited by the Israel Lacrosse Association to play on its U-17 Winter Service Trip Team in Serbia and Israel.

She's raising funds to play with the association team and bring lacrosse to underprivileged girls in high-risk areas of the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

A GoFuneMe campaign is also setup to help defray costs for the effort.

Racefaster is located at 11 N. Broad St., Ridgewood.
