Boxing as a means of improving the lives of youth may seem unexpected, but it’s precisely what the International Boxing Club does. Benefiting the lives of youth ages 8 to 20, the organization’s work expands beyond boxing into academic assistance, confidence building and leadership development. Chicks Mix 2012, a Chicks for Charity benefit event, includes auctions and raffles to provide funds for the IBC, a not-for-profit organization. Enjoy an evening of socializing, eating and drinking at the Toledo Botanical Gardens while raising money for this organization.
All money raised will benefit the IBC’s Beat the Streets program, a recently expanded effort that works to provide sports activities for boys and girls, like softball, volleyball and wrestling.
Registration required. $37, $20 for girls 20 and younger. Wed., July 11. 5:30-9pm. Toledo Botanical Gardens, 5403 Elmer Dr.
