On May 15th in Salt Lake City former Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney, will enter the boxing ring to battle five-time heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield at CharityVision’s inaugural Fight Night fundraising event. The two will be lacing up their gloves to raise money for the Utah-based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, dedicated to providing medical equipment, clinics, vision screenings, eye surgeries and training to doctors in poverty-stricken areas across the globe. The match is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. at The Rail Event Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, where Romney will go toe to toe with Holyfield, followed by several bouts featuring professional boxers Wes Capper, Steve Rolls, Leon Spinks III and Jose Haro.
VOLTAGE is excited to be a sponsor of the event providing digital marketing services to promote the night through the design of cvfightnight.org. The evening will be patterned after a 1920’s black-tie event, with live big band music provided by Caleb Chapman and the Crescent Super Band. Attendees will also be treated to the tastings of The Blended Table, and can hedge their bets in an auction featuring signed boxing gloves by Holyfield, among other items. Sponsorship packages will soon be available on the event website cvfightnight.org. Donate $10 or more and be entered to win VIP tickets to the event.
The buzz is building with numerous press mentions and most recently Mitt’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon and the Today Show where they talk about the event.
