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!
