About the Event
First annual Gleason's Give A Kid A Dream Galla Dinner at the landmark world famous Tio Pepe in the West Village, 168 W4 Street.
Mr. Roca may have started as a panamanian olympic cyclist, but it was the boxing world he turned on its ear. A hall of famer, he’s one of the worlds top boxing trainers who has created 22 world champions including ROBERTO Duran, Arturo Gatti and and Iran Barkley, yet he may be best known for coaching Hollywood's Hillary Swank to an oscar.
Established in 1991, Gleason’s Gym Give a Kid a Dream has worked to provided mentorship to disadvantaged youths through the sport of boxing.
Proceeds go to Gleason's Give a Kid a Dream. It'll be a terrific time with great food and friends all for a very worthy cause. We look forward to seeing you.
