Short version – Some of the staff from the Butcher & Bullock are trying to better themselves and raise money for a great community charity. They do a lot for us and help make our club the success that it is. Let’s help them hit their fundraising targets. I for one can’t wait to see Bret and crew in a boxing ring! Each contender needs to raise $2000 in total and all money raised goes to the charity.

Every year there is a great event called Aprons For Gloves which gives people from the Vancouver hospitality industry the opportunity to train and take part in a boxing competition which is held at the Commodore Ballrooms. 6 of the staff at the Butcher & Bullock are trying to raise funds to take part this year, and each prospective boxer needs to raise $2000. We are happy to be able to help with the fundraising efforts – If you feel you can donate and support the staff in this amazing initiative, please use the fundraiser link below – all money raised will be split equally between the participants, and any leftover funds will be donated directly to the Aprons For Gloves Charity.
Founded in 2012, Aprons for Gloves Boxing Association is a non-profit organization focused on providing community outreach through the sport of boxing.
Based in Vancouver’s Downtown eastside community Gastown, the organization was developed by a small group of professionals and entrepreneurs who seized an opportunity to re-establish a historic boxing program for at-risk women and youth. The program offers free mentorship and training to individuals who may otherwise not have the resources or support to participate in such activities.
The sport of boxing teaches discipline, respect, hard work and self-control. Training results in positive self-esteem, good health and camaraderie for its practitioners.
