Fightnews.com is reporting:
Where will Philip Anselmo of the platinum-selling world renowned, PANTERA and DOWN, be partying loud and proud? Where will Jim Lampley of HBO fame be the master emcee? Answer: The Kronk Foundation’s mega fundraiser. It will be Metro Detroit’s biggest bash, and it will pack quite a punch.
It will be a great, fun-filled event - loaded with celebrities, good food, even better wine and all sorts of goodies at a live and silent auction. But act quickly: The tickets are going fast.
If you want to assuage your guilt, remember this - it’s for fabulous cause: The Kronk Gym and the good work it does.
The Kronk Gym is internationally known for turning out champion boxers. Its founder, Emanuel Steward, has become a legend of the ring.
But fewer people know all the good work Kronk does for the youth of Metro Detroit, helping to instill in them a sense of pride and respect for their community.
To celebrate its storied history and to raise money so it can help even more kids, The Kronk Gym Foundation is holding its first annual fundraiser on Wednesday, March 25, 2009, at the Townsend Hotel, in Birmingham, MI.
The proceeds from this event will help expand youth activities, which will be housed in the new Kronk Gym.
Since its founding in 1969, the Kronk Gym has provided a recreational outlet for many youngsters in the metropolitan Detroit area. Through the coaching and guidance they received, some of these youths went on to become world-class athletes. More of them became world-class citizens.
To perpetuate this legacy, Emanuel Steward created the Kronk Gym Foundation this year, a nonprofit organization committed to making a difference in the well-being of youth through character-building, education and recreation. The program’s goal is to provide recreational facilities, in addition to mentoring and tutoring, for the overall development of youth in Metro Detroit.
Emanuel Steward says, “For many youngsters who have unfortunate home lives, the Kronk Gym and its programs are crucial.
“They are the difference between a life on the streets and a life of accomplishment.”
