Gleason’s Gym hosting Give a Kid a Dream fundraiser on May 13 at BB King Blues Club

A great night of boxing for a great cause comes to B.B. King Blues Club and Grill on Wednesday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. “Give A Kid A Dream”, in association with Gleason’s Gym, presents a full night of fights to raise money for the non-profit foundation, GAKAD. And you can be a part of supporting our fighters! 

Since 1991, GAKAD has provided children from disadvantaged backgrounds mentorship and a place to come and develop themselves both physically and mentally through the sport of boxing. Youth between the ages of 8 and 18 are eligible, and are typically referred through a school councilor, parole officer or religious leader in their community. Through the gym and the relationships these children develop with their trainers and other GAKAD mentors and councilors, GAKAD participants develop the self-confidence and discipline to help them make better decisions in their lives, have hope in their futures, and above all, to stay in school. Help these kids help themselves!!!

Tickets for the event are priced at $800 for Platinum Tables (seats four), $500 for Gold Tables (seats four), $250 for platform seating, $100 for floor seating and $50 for standing room.
