Business Leaders Throw Punches For Charity

Miss Long Island With The Georgi Girls

The 8th Annual Fight for Charity was the most successful one yet, drawing a crowd of over 1000 people who came out to watch Long Island's most prominent leaders in business - men and women - throw punches in the name of several not-for-profit organizations. The amateur fighters spent months training for the event and didn't hold back. Each year, the event raises money for a small group of carefully selected charities on the Island. This year, the charities that were honored were: The Genesis School, Long Island Community Chest, National Foundation for Human Potential, and the Long Island chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. All of these organizations provide aid and resources to the individuals and families on Long Island who need it the most, whether they require assistance for a mental of physical disability or are in need of financial help.

The event was attended by Miss Long Island 2011, the gorgeous Marina Montes, who came out to lend her support. The participants were male and female business leaders - not professional boxers - who train tirelessly in the months leading up to the Fight, using the same tenacity that led to their success in the corporate world.
