Dmitry Salita Hosting Live Charity Event Thursday In NYC
Get ready to check out a stellar evening of boxing for a tremendous cause, Thursday evening in New York City!
Box NYC, a night of amateur boxing, is a non-profit fundraising event which supports Citizen Schools, an organization which supports at-risk middle school students.
At the Lexington Avenue Armory in NYC, you can watch "while collar brawlers," women and men fighting for kids who could use a little hand up.
Promoter Dmitriy Salita is staging the fight card. The pro fighter— who boasts a 35-2-1 mark — and now an active promoter is excited to be working on such a fulfilling affair.
"Boxing is a great sport on many levels and for people from all walks of life," said Salita. "I am very proud to be part of an event that raises funds for such a worthy cause through boxing. I am a graduate of James Madison High School in Brooklyn, and truly understand the importance of productive after-school activities for teenage kids. Sport has the power to unite, and through this evening of boxing we are uniting people from different walks of life."
Citizen Schools is committed to closing the achievement and opportunity gaps by providing a proven model of target academic support and apprenticeships - hands-on learning experiences taught by volunteer professionals. The organization currently serves over 1,100 students at six partner schools in Harlem, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.
Fighters with a heart taking part in the event this evening include: Scott Schweitzer, Ashley Robison, Michael Rubin, Judy Spalthoff and Dave Dale. So far, these are the top five fund-raisers for the cause, but several other competitive scrappers are breathing down their neck, accumulating funds for the charitable endeavor. So far, almost $178,000 has been raised for Citizen Schools, so all the participants are already champions, in the fund-raising arena!
