Golden Gloves a success for city
TO THE EDITORS:
As program director of the Finefrock & Stumpf Golden Gloves Center, I would like to extend my gratitude to many of the program's supporters for a successful boxing show on March 9.
First and foremost, I want to thank the newspaper for the article and photos showcasing the inner city kids and the program. It was encouraging for the boxers and the fans to read such a positive article about boxing in Lancaster.
I also want to thank Lancaster Catholic High School for providing the facilities for the show, and all of the volunteers who helped make it happen. Cleanup would have been nearly impossible without the willing volunteers from Manos House, who stayed after the show to clean.
We were blessed to have a special guest appearance by retired world heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe that night. He is an inspiration to the boxers at the Golden Gloves Center, and I am thankful he came out to show his support for the program.
Finally, I want to thank my board of advisers, my city and the fans for believing in me and continually showing their support.
