Want to have a great time while getting inspired to be the best you can be? Want to big on some serious babes for a great cause (and personal training time with some of North American’s best Mixed Martial Arts fighters and boxers?) Then the Fighter Fundraiser Bachelor Auction is where you want to be this Saturday Night!
Sometimes in life you’re lucky to meet someone who you not only like and get along with, but who inspires you to do what you didn’t think you could do, and achieve more than you ever thought possible. To me, one of those great people is Lita Mae Button. Fighter, mother, nurse, personal trainer (mine in fact!) and an all around awesome gal, Lita took the strife in her life and turned it into a challenge to be overcome. She channeled previous issues with alcoholism and anger management into a passion for health, fitness, education and most of all boxing. And now she’s taking the next step in her boxing career, and moving from amateur to professional. Says Lita “my greatest passions in life are fighting and teaching. Going professional is that step up from Amateurs, because there is no Olympic weight category for me, and I always want to be the #1 role model for my son.” Not only is she a great role model for her son, but to women in her field, as her first fight as a professional will be making boxing history as the first all female boxing pro card in North America!
Taking this next step for Lita will involve incredible time and monetary sacrifices as she embarks on the journey, including training time, nutrition, and time off work. She also wants to charter a bus from Toronto to Gatineau for her friends, family and fans to come watch her debut in this historic event. And that’s why her friends and supporters in the boxing industry are coming together for this sure to be fun filled and exciting Bachelor Auction, to help her raise funds to achieve this next chapter of her dream. Up for grabs is some one on one training time with some of the biggest names in the biz. And if you need more convincing, some of these fighters happen to be TOTAL babes, if I do say so myself. Proffessional MMA fighter Abdula Te, UFC champion Elias Theodoron and Andre “Bam Bam” Gore will all be on the auction block to help Lita raise some much needed funds, and ensure that the ladies (and gentlemen) in attendance have a great time!
Location: Blast Athletic, 374 Dupont Street (between Spadina and Bathurst) – Main Floor, Toronto, Ontario M5R 1V9
