The Long Island Fight for Charity will host a free Tenth Main Event Announcement and Speed Networking Celebration at the Long Island Hilton, Melville, Route 110 (Savoy Room) on Monday, November 19, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This event will include
“Full Contact Speed Networking” and a program announcing the 10th Fight for Charity and a short panel discussion with past boxers hosted by News12 Long Island’s Elisa DiStefano. The celebratory occasion on November 19th, includes complimentary food, wine, beer and soft drinks, and will be the first in a series of events leading up to the Fight for Charity “Main Event” in November of 2013. Individuals can RSVP for this free event at http://bit.ly/ffcnov19.
Businesspeople, corporate and professional sponsors,
volunteers, alumni boxers and nonprofit and community leaders will gather to look back at the impressive history of the LI Fight for Charity. The first 100 attendees will be invited to “step in the ring” to take part in the region’s largest “Full Contact Speed Networking” experience and the opportunity to meet at least 20 new contacts.
More than 150 volunteer Fight for Charity boxers have met
each other in the ring and have raised funds for worthy causes. No other Long Island fundraising organization has succeeded in raising more than $700,000 to distribute to individuals and charities in such a unique and selfless way. Long Island Community Chest, Family Residences and Essential Enterprises and the Genesis School Eden II Programs are among the not-for-profit organizations supported by LI Fight for Charity.
“The Fight for Charity event has captured the attention
and support of the Long Island business and not-for-profit community as well as the media. Our boxers are an inspiring group of men and women, who make a serious commitment to train and help to raise funds for fellow Long Islanders who are desperately in need of support. On November 19th we will announce our latest plans for our tenth event,” said Jamie Austin, of Austin Travel and LI Fight for Charity Co–Founder.
