A Bout to Benefit is an annual white-collar boxing event, which raises funds for children with cancer and their families.
Twenty-four volunteers endure rigorous training each year in the months leading up to the event to provide twelve entertaining boxing exhibition bouts refereed by USA Boxing officials. The organization is very lucky to partner with a number of gyms that provide the volunteers with training for the event in a voluntary capacity. Money is raised through donations to the volunteers, ticket sales to the event, as well as a charity auction and bar at the event. Tickets are available through the boxers or online.
