Hurricane Sandy Damage Cancels Ring 8 November Meeting Postpones Holiday Awards Dinner

PhilBoxing.com


NEW YORK, NY (November 19, 2012) - Damage from Hurricane Sandy to landmark venues in New York has resulted in the cancellation of tomorrow's Ring 8 monthly meeting at the historic Waterfront Crabhouse in Long Island City, and postponement of the 26th annual Ring 8 Holiday Event and Awards Ceremony from December 9 to February 10 at Russo's On The Bay in Howard Beach, New York.

"A lot of people, including some Ring 8 members, and places got hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and they're still recovering," "Ring 8 president Bob Duffy said. "The Waterfront Crabhouse and Russo's On The Bay are right on the water and both suffered a lot of damage. We're in discussions with another restaurant to host our December meeting. Our 2012 award winners have been notified. We had to push that event back to February but we will be announcing the names of all the winners in a few weeks. Ring 8 wishes everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving, as well as a great holiday season."


Formed in 1954 by an ex-prizefighter, Jack Grebelsky, Ring 8 became the eighth subsidiary of what was then known as the National Veteran Boxers Association - hence, RING 8 - and today the organization's motto still remains: Boxers Helping Boxers.

RING 8 is fully committed to supporting less fortunate people in the boxing community who may require assistance in terms of paying rent, medical expenses, or whatever justifiable need.

Go on line to www.Ring8ny.com for more information about RING 8, the largest group of its kind in the United States with more than 350 members. Annual membership dues is only $25.00 and each member is entitled to a buffet dinner at RING 8 monthly meetings, the third Tuesday of every month, excluding July and August. All active boxers, amateur and professional, are entitled to a complimentary RING 8 yearly membership.
