NYPD FACES OFF IN ANNUAL BOXING TOURNAMENT AT RESORTS WORLD CASINO NEW YORK CITY

Proceeds Will Benefit Atlas Cops & Kids Foundation to Fund Free Boxing Gyms for Officers and Local Children

(Queens, NY) – Join Resorts World Casino New York City for NYPD Boxing Team’s “The Luck of the Irish” boxing tournament at the largest event space in Queens – the casino’s very own Central Park event space – next week on Thursday, March 16 at 8 p.m. “The Luck of The Irish” will benefit the Atlas Cops & Kids Foundation, which offers free boxing gyms to police officers and local children.

The annual event will feature approximately 18 police officers from across New York City, including the 23rd, 106th and 113th precincts, facing off to raise funds for the Atlas Cops & Kids Foundation. Hundreds of police officers will attend the event to support their fellow officers with the help of transportation arranged by RWCNYC.

The “Cops vs. Cops” tradition was founded in 2000 by Dave Siev of the 67th Precinct in Brooklyn. This is the second year in a row the event will be held at Resorts World Casino New York City; last year, it raised $70,000. In 2017, Atlas Cops & Kids Foundation hopes to open a new gym in the Bronx and eventually operate at least one gym in all five boroughs. Currently, the three gyms serve around 300 kids in total.

Enjoy watching New York’s finest duke it out for a good cause and the title of top fighter of the NYPD! For more information and directions to the 2017 Queens All-In Smoker, please visit www.nypdboxing.com, call 646-377-0846, or email smokecop@yahoo.com.
