FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. FOUNDATION, ACES FOUNDATION & A’JA WILSON FOUNDATION HOST BACK-TO-SCHOOL EVENT
- Fight For Your Education
- When: August 20, 2023
The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation, Aces Foundation, and A’Ja Wilson Foundation have joined forces to bring an exciting Back-to-school Giveaway event to the Las Vegas community! This event is designed to provide support and resources to students and schools for the school year that is underway in a fun and interactive environment. In addition to each student receiving a backpack with grade appropriate school supplies and a book, they will also be provided with pizza courtesy of Carmine’s Pizza Kitchen, participate in interactive arts & craft activities provided by the Discover Children’s Museum, and learn the fundamentals of boxing through short tutorials with professional and amateur boxers from the Mayweather Boxing Club. All students MUST be registered in advance for access to the event. Visit: The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation website (link below) for more information on student registration.
In conjunction with the Back-to-School Giveaway, much needed supplies and essential hygiene products will be collected and donated to select schools across the Las Vegas community. Our goal is to provide schools with additional resources to help them get through the school year. Donations will be accepted at the Mayweather Boxing + Fitness- Spring Valley, located at: 6565 S. Fort Apache Rd. #165, Las Vegas, NV 89148 through August 31st. Aces fans also have a special opportunity to support this cause by bringing supplies from the list to their home game on August 31st. Fans who bring supplies to the game will will be entered into a raffle to win the following prizes: a signed Floyd Mayweather glove, complimentary 3-month unlimited membership to Mayweather Boxing + Fitness (applies to new memberships ONLY & must provide proof of Las Vegas residency), a pair of VIP tickets to an Aces game with VIP suite access, a signed jersey, a signed ball, an Aces swag bag, or an A’ja Wilson Foundation swag pack.
