AS I SEE IT
Pro Wrestling: Between the Sheets
The Philadelphia area got its first frost warnings this past week…and the Holiday season isn’t far away.
In keeping with the actual spirit of the season, the wrestling community will reach out to those in need. Independent promotions hold a wide variety of events to benefit various food pantries, shelters, Toys for Tots drives. Over the years, promotions ranging from the family-friendly United Wrestling Coalition to the hardcore themed Combat Zone Wrestling to indies of various sizes and types trough the United States and Canada. Even if you don’t have one in your own area this Holiday season, please take time to contribute to or volunteer with such organizations.
The first of these I want to mention is the eighth annual Combat Zone Wrestling Toys for Tots collection at Cage of Death on December 8. The Cage of Death event, CZW’s annual mega-show will again be part of a “deadly doubleheader”, this year with EVOLVE hosting a matinee show…all taking place at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ.
Chicago Style Wrestling will also hold their show benefitting Toys for Tots on November 23 in Addison, IL
USCW Pro Wrestling will hold their own Toys for Tots at the Baker County Fair Grounds in Macclenny, FL . Go to http://uscw.org/
Cost: $10.00 at the Door or Bring a NEW Unopened Toy & get in Free, all toy brought will be given to the “Toys For Tots”
Incidentally, Toys for Tots collections have already begin in other parts of the United States. If you need information on the charity, go to Toys for Tots.com
