FIND A DREAM To Host Boxing Legends Events in Myrtle Beach, SC On November 2nd


Former Champions to raise awareness and funding for Youth Boxing Program

Myrtle Beach, SC (I-Newswire) October 12, 2012 - Five of boxing's great champions will be in Myrtle Beach, SC on Friday, November 2nd as part of Boxing Legends events to raise awareness and funding for Find A Dream. With a combined 11 championship belts between them, former champs Ray Mercer, Michael Moorer, Buddy McGirt, Bobby Czyz, and Don Steele will participate in a celebrity golf outing at River Oaks Golf Club...and then convene at Boxing Legends Night at RODEO Bar & Grill for a "meet and greet" event on Friday night.

The champion boxers are all active participants in Find A Dream -a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that reaches out to underprivileged children and provides them a healthy channel to find and work towards fulfilling their potential. The boxing legends, along with other members of the Find a Dream team, are committed to contributing their time, expertise, and experience in working with young people to improve their self-confidence, discipline, and sense of worth. Other Find A Dream team members include boxing industry greats Hector Camacho Jr. and Al Bernstein.

Find A Dream has initiated a youth boxing program for disadvantaged children in Myrtle Beach. The program will serve the community by providing a positive, creative, and healthy outlet for youth in need of guidance and mentoring.

"I am excited about my involvement with Find A Dream," said Moorer, former WBO, WBA, and IBF heavyweight champion. "The organization is all about working with underprivileged youth. My main objective is to work with kids and help provide a positive influence in their lives. I grew up in poverty, and know all about dealing with temptations and the hard choices kids have to make. We didn't have organizations like Find A Dream, so to be able to give back is important and means a lot to me. I am excited about coming to Myrtle Beach to reach out to the community and get others involved!"

The Boxing Legends golf tournament at River Oaks is open to the public, with registration starting at 11:00 AM and a shotgun start at noon. Those interested in participating as a four man team or as an individual should contact Deby Emmanuel of Quantum of Myrtle Beach (843-293-0107...ext 222).

Boxing Legends Night at RODEO Bar & Grill at Broadway at the Beach is from 8-11:00 PM and is open to the public.

General Admission tickets are $10 at the door. VIP tickets are $50. Those interested in tickets should contact Mark Krom of NextMedia (954-554-6374).

Rod Ricciardi, founder of Find A Dream, said, "We're grateful for the contribution and support of local businesses like RODEO Bar & Grill, River Oaks Golf, Quantum, NextMedia, WPDE, and WBTW. It's due to their efforts that we're able to hold these exciting events and raise awareness and funding for Find A Dream!
