There will be a very noteworthy event taking place on Saturday, August 25th at the Upshur Recreation Center located at 14th and Arkansas Avenue in Northwest Washington. This is the fifth annual Cease Fire: Don't Smoke the Brothers and Sisters cookout and amateur boxing card. The free event will begin at noon and go until 8:30 PM. For those who want to see the boxing card, that will begin at 3 PM.
Those participating in the boxing card should attend the weigh-in at 10 AM at the Cease Fire Headquarters at 4708 14th Street, NW.
Along with the boxing card, there will be a cookout with free food as well as a concert featuring EU (with Sugar Bear), Wisdom Speeks, Jett Black DC and other performers. Most importantly, the event will call for a six-month moratorium to stop the killing in our community.
