Fundraising

Successful fundraising events allow us to fund our scholarships, our youth program awards, donations to child abuse prevention programs and respond to requests for assistance from other community organizations. Listed below are a few of the events.

Fight Night – The year 2019 will mark the 30th anniversary of this major fundraiser. It is a distinctive charity amateur boxing tournament, sanctioned by the New England and National Boxing Commissions, and coordinated in partnership with the Lawrence Boxing Club. It consists of a full course dinner, ten amateur bouts, raffles, and silent auctions. To be successful it requires an extreme amount of work, and it is expected that our membership is prepared to participate to the best of their ability.
