CHARITY FUND RAISER TO HONOR AND SUPPORT STRICKEN CHAMPIONS McCLELLAN AND PAGE

MANY BOXING LUMINARIES EXPECTED TO ATTEND ON FEBRUARY 22 IN ROCKFORD, IL

FREEPORT, January 15 - On Saturday, February 22, a charity fund raising dinner will be held in honor of world boxing champions Gerald McClellan and Greg Page at the Clock Tower Resort in Rockford, Illinois.

All proceeds from this event, which will feature many luminaries in attendance from the world of boxing, will go towards the continuing medical care of both champions, who were seriously injured in their final bouts.

Tickets, priced at $100 per plate, are available by calling Ear Wax Records at 815-233-5460. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, but to ensure premium seating, reservations are encouraged.

Gerald McClellan, the former middleweight champion of the world, has required 24 hour a day care since his tragic bout with Nigel Benn in 1995.

The Charity dinner is being held three days before the eighth anniversary of the fight, which took place in London, England.

Greg Page, a former world heavyweight champion , also requires extensive medical rehabilitation stemming from injuries suffered in a 2001 bout with Dale Crowe.

Boxing reform is a key theme of this charity event, and the cases of McClellan and Page clearly demonstrate the need for such changes in the industry. Please support this worthwhile cause with your attendance on February 22.

For more information, please contact Lisa McClellan by E-mail at lisamcclellan99@aol.com

The Clock Tower Resort is located at 7801 East State Street in Rockford, Illinois. Their phone number is 815-398-6000.

If you are unable to attend this event, but would still like to make a tax deductible donation, you can mail your check or money order, made payable to Gerald McClellan Trust to:

Gerald McClellan Trust

PO Box 120
Freeport, IL 61032
