On February 24th, North Vancouver’s Griffins Boxing and Fitness rolled out the red carpet for their 12th Annual Evening at Ringside event, a VIP boxing gala benefitting Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver where guests enjoyed a VIP reception with cocktails and canapés, and participated in auctions and raffles all while watching a live Olympic-style boxing tournament.
Griffins owner Dave Brett believes strongly in the power of mentorship both inside and outside of the ring: “We’re not a regular boxing gym, we’re a community; mentorship and mutual respect is what makes our communities strong. That’s just as true inside our facility as it is beyond the walls of our gym.” It is our shared interest in improving the lives of today’s children through mentorship programs that makes this an amazing partnership that Big Brothers would like to see continue for many years to come.
This year, thanks to many generous sponsors, donors, and guests we have successfully raised a record breaking $19,882.22. We at Big Brothers would like to thank the entire Griffins Boxing and Fitness team for all of their hard work and the dedication shown to this event year after year.
Due to popular demand, the 13th Evening at Ringside event will be held on October 20, 2018. Keep an eye on our website for information on how to get tickets to this award winning philanthropic event.
