Salita Promotions is pleased to announce they will donate five charitable meals for each general admission and ten charitable meals for every VIP ticket purchased for their upcoming “Detroit Brawl” event to Forgotten Harvest, one of the nation’s largest food rescue organizations.
Scheduled for Saturday, July 16, at the historic Masonic Temple in Downtown Detroit, the next “Detroit Brawl” will feature WBO #5, IBF #5, and WBC #7 Mexican heavyweight contender Andy “The Destroyer from Mexicali” Ruiz (27-0, 18 KOs) in the 10-round main event.
Based in Oak Park, Michigan, Forgotten Harvest was formed in 1990 to relieve hunger and prevent food waste throughout the metro Detroit area. Forgotten Harvest “rescued” over 40 million pounds of food last year by collecting surplus prepared and perishable food from over 800 locations, including grocery stores, fruit and vegetable markets, restaurants, caterers, dairies, farmers, wholesale food distributors and other Health Department-approved sources.
This donated food, which would otherwise go to waste, is delivered free of-charge to 280 emergency food providers in the metro Detroit area. Forgotten Harvest has been ranked as a four-star charity by Charity Navigator for nine consecutive years.
Sponsored by Greektown Casino and Thomas Magee’s Sporting House Whiskey Bar, tickets for “Detroit Brawl” will be priced at VIP $123, Box Seats $100, Ringside $93, Reserved $63 and $38, and Balcony $28, and are available at all Ticketmaster outlets and Tickmaster.com.
