2016 Cleveland Area Golden Gloves Tournament

Greetings,

The new year has just begun, and the Cleveland Area Golden Gloves amateur boxing association is determined to build upon our momentum as we prepare for a promising 2016 season. Last year, more than 100 amateur boxers competed in our Qualifying Tournaments. With your support, the CAGG was able to sponsor our nine local Open Division victors to compete in the 2015 National Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas, with Charles Conwell, Jr. earning a hard-fought national title and, in December, a qualifying spot on the U.S. Olympic Team.

The CAGG is proud to announce that The 88th Annual Cleveland Area Golden Gloves Qualifying Tournaments, which will be held the last two weekends in April, 2016 at The City of Brook Park Recreation Center (17400 Holland Road, Brook Park). Preliminaries will take place on Friday, April 22nd, Quarter Finals on Saturday, April 23rd, Semi-Finals on Friday, April 29th, and Finals on Saturday, April 30th. Friday bouts begin at 7:00 PM, with Saturday bouts beginning at 6:00 PM.

I invite you to support the 2016 Tournaments by considering one of our corporate or individual sponsorship levels or by purchasing an advertisement in the 2016 Program Book. The CAGG needs your help to continue our mission to grow amateur boxing in Northeast Ohio and to sponsor our local boxers in their quest for a national Golden Gloves title. The Cleveland Area Golden Gloves is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and your generous support of the Tournaments is vital as it provides the CAGG with the financial resources needed to support our youth boxers in the gym and in competition. This includes sponsoring the Cleveland delegation to the 2016 National Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions in Salt Lake City, providing them with transportation and lodging and paying all entrance fees so as to remove the financial burden from their families.

The Cleveland Area Golden Gloves Qualifying Tournaments draw attendees from across Northeast Ohio, which will provide great exposure for your company or firm.

By supporting the Tournaments as a Sponsor or Program Book advertiser, your contribution will make a difference in the life of a local, young boxer.

On behalf of the CAGG, thank you for your consideration and for your support of amateur boxing in Northeast Ohio.

2015 Night at the Races Fundraiser

Dear Sponsor,

The Cleveland Area Golden Gloves is hard at work trying to build on recent success, including an exciting 2015 Tournament and our first National Golden Gloves Champion since 2007.

In April, over one hundred athletes from Northeast Ohio competed in our 87th Annual Cleveland Area Golden Gloves Qualifying Tournaments. After four intense nights of fights, we raised the arms of our Open Division champions: Arrel Love, Marty Adams, Ryan Allen, Charles Conwell, Jr., Kato Montgomery, Elhan Nevzadi, Daywaun Roseberry, Alante Green and Octavius Webb.  These local champions proceeded to Las Vegas in May to represent the CAGG in the 2015 National Tournament of Champions at the WestGate Hotel. All of our boxers faced high-quality competition, and several advanced to the later rounds of the Tournament.  I am very proud to report that one, Charles Conwell, Jr. at 165 lbs., triumphed and is a National 2015 Golden Gloves Champion.

While this year’s Tournament season has come to a close, we are already looking toward next year, preparing to support our local boxers in their quest to represent Cleveland at the 2016 Tournament of Champions in Salt Lake City. With that goal in mind, I would like to invite you to join us for our annual CAGG Night at the Races fundraiser taking place at 6:00 PM on Friday, September 11, 2015 at Northfield Park (10705 Northfield Road, Northfield, Ohio).

Enclosed please find an invitation flyer to the event.  Please feel free to send this flyer to your friends and colleagues who may also be interested in supporting our local amateur boxers. If you cannot attend but would like to help our organization fulfill its mission, donations are fully tax-deductible, and are utilized to defray the costs involved in hosting the local tournament and in sending the Open Division champions to the National tournament.

I hope you will join us for a fun-filled night of racing and a celebration of our 2015 victories. On behalf of the CAGG, thank you for your support continued support.  I hope to see you at the races!
