Golden Gloves is January 16, 2018

Save the date for the 42nd Annual Golden Gloves Banquet & Boxing Exhibition, which takes place Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. at the Medina Entertainment Center.


For 42 years, MPMA has supported Golden Gloves through its annual banquet and boxing event fundraiser. The event raises money for Upper Midwest Golden Gloves, as 90 percent of the net proceeds are donated directly to the program.

Attendees will enjoy a prime rib dinner and nine bouts of boxing. Tables of eight are available for purchase for $600. Individual tickets are also available for $80. Registration costs include all food, taxes, and gratuity.

Since 1923, Golden Gloves of America Inc. has given opportunities and provided an environment that allows young athletes to train. The mission of Golden Gloves of America is “to provide an activity and safe environment that promotes and enhances the physical and emotional well-being and social development of young athletes; develop individual athletic skills, work ethic, discipline, sportsmanship, self-respect and pride.”  For more information on Golden Gloves, visit www.goldengloves.com.
