After a 30-year run hosting Fight Night, one of the most successful charity galas in the Washington, D.C., area, Fight For Children, announces its successor, Fight For Children Honors.
Described by the organizers as “Fight Night meets The Kennedy Center Honors,” the event celebrates those who have leveraged the power of sports for positive social impact, in an evening of superstar entertainment, camaraderie and fun.
Business leaders, athletes and celebrities will cross paths during the star-studded gala, which is held May 19, 2022 at The Anthem music venue and auditorium in D.C. Honorees will be recognized for their impact and inspiring actions.
Fight For Children also has partnered with Al Roker and his production team at Al Roker Entertainment to produce compelling stories chronicling the ways the organization is working to support and strengthen communities through the power of sport.
“Today’s heroes are those that serve their community and give everyone an opportunity at success,” Roker said. “By telling the stories of the kids who benefit from Fight For Children’s mission, I hope to elevate the conversation about the importance of staying active, helping everyone regardless of their income or circumstance, and inspiring others to be part of the solution.”
After 30 years and more than $70 million raised, Fight For Children retired Fight Night in November 2019. Fight For Children Honors will become the new hallmark event for the organization. One-hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit the 26 local youth sports organizations in the Fight For Children Youth Development Institute.
