|Sanctioned Event Description|
This is an officially sanctioned fundraiser for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. A portion of the profit of this show will go directly to American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer to help fund research and save lives. For more than two decades, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has united communities in the fight against this deadly disease and funded breakthrough research, provide 24/7 support for breast cancer patients, and provide access to lifesaving screenings. Today, Making Strides is the largest network of breast cancer events in the nation.
Prior to the boxing, the event will feature a short concert by a local Middle School Chorus group.
Winning boxers will be awarded one-of-a-kind unique belt unlike any in other shows. It will feature a 20-foot ring used by famous pros in their fights.
The venue is the Carlisle Expo Center which is 3 miles off I-81 and 2.3 miles off the PA Turnpike and minutes from Harrisburg, PA. The Expo center is modern, clean and heated/AC appropriately. The Expo Center is a 30,000 square-foot A+ facility. We will cap tickets to no more than 1500 people to allow for a lot of space to move. We expect to sell this out early.
This event will feature high-end catered food and non-alcoholic beverages for sale. There will be craft beer packages available for sale in advance of the event. All of this will be in compliance with USAB policy as well as state and local laws.
