This weekend the renowned Resorts Hotel Casino in Atlantic City will serve as host to this year’s All Star Boxing Legends Gala.
On Saturday a tribute dinner will take place within Resorts honoring boxers of the past and present, with several of the sport’s most prevalent names making an appearance.
Find A Dream is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization geared towards to providing a safe and supportive environment for youth and young adults of diverse social, economic and ethnic backgrounds.
They strive to build gyms and educational facilities so youth can work toward a goal and have the resources to pursue their dreams.
To further their efforts of spreading awareness of the cause, Find A Dream will be sending a handful of their Board Members and supportive team to the gala, including Ray Mercer, Bobby Czyz, Don Steele and Hector Camacho Jr.
“Find A Dream is honored to be attending the All Star Boxing Legends gala this weekend,” said Rod Ricciardi, co-founder of Find A Dream. “Outside of Las Vegas, Atlantic City has become a Mecca of boxing, hosting world championship fights and some of the best battles to have been fought within the ring. Having all of those acclaimed boxing icons together at the dinner is going to be a true treat to any boxing fan, and we are happy to be part of it.”
“Matt Howard—Vice President of Gomes Gaming—has gone above and beyond and has continued to be a major supporter of Find A Dream,” said Ricciardi. “He personally invited our team of legendary fighters to be part of this extravagant event, and he and Resorts are going to make it an unforgettable weekend.”
Find A Dream is a nonprofit organization unlike any other. They have partnered with professionals to deliver on their promise of positive change in young lives. Communities become stronger when youth is mentored through people of character with a true interest in pouring constructive, character-building activities and input into their lives.
To continue about Find A Dream, Ricciardi stated, “What we’re trying to do is help kids of any age and bring a positive influence into their lives. We are trying to do it through martial arts, boxing, to give kids discipline and structure.
"We are also opening up a music division, and want to offer the full spectrum of educational programs—computer and music classes, total career counseling and assisting young adults through high school and college. Our impact is felt every time an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.”
