The founders of the Long Island’s Fight for Charity will host a Boxer Matchup Cocktail Reception on Monday, October 7, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Carlyle At The Palace, in Plainview to announce the boxer matchups for this year’s 10th Main Event.
Massapequa’s Robert “The Tax Reducer” Renda is one of more than 20 volunteer boxers from the business community who will gather with committee members, sponsors and fans to meet, network and learn who the boxers’ opponents will be in November. Robert Renda is an associate in the Tax Certiorari Department at Forchelli, Curto, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Terrana, LLP in Uniondale.
Renda and the other boxers, after months of preparation, fundraising and training, are anxious to know who they will face in the ring at the LIFFC main event scheduled for November 25 at the Hilton Long Island in Melville. There will be more than 10 bouts on the card that evening featuring business professionals who will go toe-to-toe on the canvas. An additional surprise bout will be announced soon.
“The Boxer Matchup Reception is an event everyone is enthusiastic about attending,” said Renda. “As a volunteer boxer who has been training and preparing for the 10th Main Event in November, I am really anxious to find out my opponent’s name. There will be plenty of energy and excitement in the room as the matchups are announced.”
Proceeds from the LI Fight for Charity will be donated to The Long Island Community Chest, The Genesis School, and the National Foundation for Human Potential. LI Fight for Charity had donated $700,000 to Long Island charities since 2003; its fundraising goal set for 2013 is $200,000.
