The UnGala @ Downtown Boxing Gym

Join us for an evening of off the hook food, fun and festivities benefitting the Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program! We’re celebrating the joys of being a kid Saturday, Oct. 12 from 7 p.m. – 12 a.m. with a sneaker-chic event you won’t want to miss.

The inaugural UnGala promises kid-inspired cuisine, activities and stories with an adult twist. With an uncommon take on the traditional gala, this event will be a truly unique experience.

The UnGala will also help raise much needed funds to directly support Detroit students who participate in the Downtown Boxing Gym’s “Books Before Boxing” program. The boxing gym is a free, after-school academic and athletic program for Detroit students ages 8-18. Through tutoring, mentorship, enrichment programs, college and career readiness, healthy meals, transportation and more, the gym provides children with the tools they need to succeed.

With a nod to Stephen Luigi Piazza, our mentor and dear friend who passed away last year after a courageous battle with cancer, the inaugural UnGala is being held in part as a celebration of his life (not to mention his sneaker-chic fashion sense) and the important difference we can all make by following in his footsteps.

Every child deserves a fighting chance at a winning future. So, get sneaker-chic and join us at the UnGala for a party with a purpose!
