SA charity auction a knockout in US

  • Knockout
Former American boxing promoter Joel Berman hosted a charity benefit in Brooklyn, New York, last month to raise funds for two South African non-profit organisations: Operation Smile South Africa and Ubuntu Pathways.
by OWN CORRESPONDENT | May 23, 2019

The event – aptly named Fight for Good – was held at the world famous Gleason’s Gym in Dumbo, Brooklyn, New York, on 25 April 2019, with almost 200 people in attendance. Twenty artworks and sculptures created by renowned South African artists, as well as boxing gloves signed by Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya, were auctioned off by South African auctioneer Ariella Kuper to raise funds for both organisations.

The event raised just more than $40 000 (R578 000), and will probably be the first of many similar collaborative events in the near future.

Operation Smile South Africa offers free cleft lip and cleft palate reconstructive surgery.
