Just a reminder that today the Texas Road House restaurant 10066 W. San Juan Way in Littleton 80127 (located off 470 & Kipling) will open their doors from noon-2 p.m. serving lunch for any sized donation supporting the Salvation Army Denver ARC (Adult Rehabilitation Center) program.

Normally opening at 4 p.m., this event is specially designed to help fund the Salvation Army ARC efforts in ridding our community of drug and alcohol abuse.

Addiction is an issue in all of our lives whether directly or indirectly and the Salvation Army Denver ARC offers a rehabilitation program for both men and women that is completely FREE of charge.

Call 303-932-7427 for information or directions.

The Colorado Golden Gloves Charities (CGGC) has a Father’s Day fundraising golf tournament scheduled for Saturday, June 14th at the beautiful Willis Case Golf Course located off I-70 & Sheridan in Denver with a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start.

A few spaces remain available for golfers looking to both support amateur boxing and mingle with past Colorado Golden Gloves amateur boxing legends while playing 18 holes of golf with prizes, raffles and a delicious lunch all included in the price of $95 per person.

You may register by phone: 303-594-0123.

Should any Colorado amateur boxers/coaches be interested, the BATTLE OF THE UNIVERSE is scheduled for June 26-28 at the Rayne Civic Center in Rayne, Louisiana.

This USA Boxing sanctioned tournament has been reduced to a 3-day event (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) with TITLE championship belts awarded to winners (including unopposed champions) and medals to all runners-up.

Males, Females, Masters and Novice boxers can all look to be accommodated.

Currently there are boxers from Louisiana, Tennessee, Connecticut, Georgia, Texas, Florida and Mexico (just to name a few) registered for this event.

Colorado has no amateur boxers registered as of yet, this being an excellent opportunity for exposure and competition at a higher level.

Contact Tournament Director Jody Gautier at 337-849-8083 or jody1882@charter.net for further information and availability of reduced priced lodging.

Condolences to the family and friends of Gary ‘Chubs’ Pliner, past USA Boxing Board of Director member and long-time Wisconsin amateur boxing supporter, who recently passed away at the age of 73.
