The event has become a late-summer tradition in DC and for the seventh year, it returns for another great event of food, fun and amateur boxing.
The event is the Cease Fire Don't Smoke the Brothers and Sisters amateur boxing event and cookout that will take place on Saturday, August 30 at the Upshur Recreation Center located at 14th and Arkansas Avenue in Northwest DC. Universal Madness and the UMAR Learning Center in DC are also sponsors of the event.
The cookout will begin at noon and last until 8:30 PM. The food is free and there will also be free medical screenings. The boxing will commence at 3 PM.
As in previous years, the event also calls for a six-month moratorium to stop the killings in the city. For more information, call 202-210-1960.
