Police officers will square off with union trade members in an upcoming boxing card to raise money for the proposed Pennsylvania Global War on Terrorism Memorial.
The event is set for Friday, Sept. 13, at Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, 11630 Caroline Road.
General admission tickets are $25. People can buy VIP tickets for $800, which includes a ringside table for 10 of their friends or family, beer and food.
All proceeds go toward the memorial, which will honor the 290 service members from Pennsylvania who have died in either Iraq or Afghanistan since 2001. The memorial wall will be near the waterfront at Penn’s Landing, near memorials for locals who died in the Korean and Vietnam wars.
For tickets or more information, call Tim Wynn at 267-591-3314 or visit https://www.gwotmemorial.org/gwot-memorial.
