Congratulations to Dennis Hein, the winner of boxing gloves autographed by world champion boxer, Terence Crawford.  The West Omaha Rotary Foundation will receive $315 as a result of the raffle drawing for the gloves.
Thanks to Martie Cordaro for inviting Terence Crawford to our Friday Rotary meeting.  It was a good program with information about the renovations planned for the B&B Boxing Academy.  Terence announced in October that the building in north Omaha housing the boxing academy needs repairs and renovations.  Crawford purchased surrounding property and is asking the community to help raise money for the building renovations.  Terence mentors dozens of kids after school at the north Omaha warehouse.  The Academy can be a safe haven for neighborhood kids. The planned renovations will provide an improved space for training and activities that will keep the kids off the streets and out of trouble.  Phillip McClain, business manager for Terence Crawford, can be contacted at or phone 773.640.6935 for information about donating to help support the renovations at the B&B Boxing Academy. 
Terence Crawford was interviewed by KMTV following his presentation on Friday, December 18th.  You can click the following link to see the interview .
