Ring 8 is excited once again to host our annual Holiday and Awards Ceremony. Thanks to your generous support, we are thrilled to continue this Ring 8 tradition.
We are grateful for the opportunity to honor members of our Ring 8 Family who have truly gone above and beyond to enrich the boxing community. This is also our main fundraiser for the year and our primary means of funding and assisting boxers in need.
The Gala Journal will be displayed and distributed during the evening of the Gala and will reach hundreds of members and nonmembers in the boxing community. Please support our efforts by placing a business or personal ad in this year’s Journal. We have adjusted the rates of our Journal to be sensitive to the current economic climate. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to effectively advertise your business, and to extend your good wishes to our honorees.
