Boxers For Tenth Long Island Fight For Charity Announced

Long Island Fight for Charity (LIFFC) hosted nearly 250 supporters at a recent celebration held at the Hilton Long Island in Melville. Plans were announced for activities leading up to the Tenth Long Island Fight for Charity’s “Main Event,” scheduled for November 25, 2013. At the main event volunteer boxers from the Long Island business community who have completed intense training will step into the ring for charity.

The first volunteer boxers who have been announced to participate in the 2013 Main Event are Keith Dawson of Patchogue, Anthony Giallanzo of Glen Cove, Mike Haltman of Woodbury, Joanne Hutchins of Bayville, Kevin Kelly of Plainview, Bill Mabanta of Holtsville and Leaf Steuernagel of Bellport, as well as Scott Zuckerman and Joe Palumbo. 

“It’s inspiring to see these devoted men and women take the time a year before the fight to introduce themselves and help raise money for charity. Boxers are making a significant commitment of time and effort for a worthy cause. We expect our tenth event to be our largest and most successful to date,” said Jamie Austin, of Austin Travel and LI Fight for Charity Co-Founder.

Businesspeople, corporate and professional sponsors, volunteers, alumni boxers, and nonprofit and community leaders gathered to look back at the impressive history of the LI Fight for Charity.  More than 150 volunteer Fight for Charity boxers have met each other in the ring and have raised funds for worthy causes. No other Long Island fundraising organization has succeeded in raising more than $700,000 to distribute to individuals and charities in such a unique and selfless way. Long Island Community Chest, Family Residences and Essential Enterprises and the Genesis School Eden II Programs are among the not-for-profit organizations supported by LI Fight for Charity.

A panel discussion with alumni celebrity boxers was hosted by News12 Long Island’s Elisa DiStefano and a Full Contact Speed Networking program were highlights of the evening. Dozens of people participated in the “Full Contact Speed Networking” program, where attendees were invited to “step in the ring” to take part in the region’s largest speed networking experience for the opportunity to meet new contacts.

Boxer applications are being accepted now for participation in a limited number of main event bouts and are available by calling (877) 240-7821, ext. 1. Boxing experience isn’t necessary. Applicants must complete an application; obtain medical clearance; make a commitment to train (gym locations to be announced); attend LIFFC events, and raise funds for Long Island charities. Tickets for the Tenth Fight for Charity are available now for $100.

News

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade. 

If the Farmingdale Rams are going to get over the top and capture the Skyline Conference for men’s soccer in 2014, it will take some more aggressive play. That’s according to team captain and defensive player Vincent Danetti. 

 

“We don’t have a lot of big guys on our team,” Danetti said. “We need to play aggressive.”

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
