New york, US, March 24, 2008 -- Box-NYC (www.box-nyc.com), New York City’s premier social boxing event, returns for a fourth consecutive year to the Hammerstein Ballroom, Wednesday, April 16th with an exciting combination of professional boxing, fine-dining, Texas Hold ‘em Poker Tournament and model and celebrity appearances. World Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko will appear at the event and will accept a check from BOX NYC for The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, the official charity of the event.

Fighters included in the evening’s seven-bout card include Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin, Chazz Witherspoon and Ireland ’s Henry Coyle among others. The final fight card will be announced in the near future.

In addition to the professional boxing, fine dining and poker tournament, there will be both a live and silent auction with proceeds going to The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. Over the past three years, Jed Weinstein of Jed Weinstein Presents and the brainchild of BOX NYC has donated $100,000 to The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation through his annual BOX NYC event. Using sport as a tool for social change, The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation's mission is simple but crucial: to use sport as a tool for social change. Laureus targets the social and economic problems that plague communities across the U.S. and works with community members and local organizations- as well as some of the world's greatest athletes - to develop innovative sports programs to solve these problems.

Every year the who’s who comes out to catch the highly anticipated evening. This year, in addition to World Heavyweight Champion Klitschko, other celebrity attendees expected to attending include former New York Knicks John Starks, members of the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants among others. Past celebrities in attendance include John McEnroe, Serena Williams, Billy Crudup, Stella Keitel, The Gastineau Girls’ Lisa and Brittny Gastineau and Damon Dash to name a few.

The VIP tables start at the Bronze level for $3,250 for eight guests, that include gourmet dinner, top-shelf open bar, cigar bar, and an opportunity for poker buy-in, and go up to $8,000 for a ten guest at the Platinum Table, with ring side seats. Private boxes ($2,400 for twelve guests) and upper level seating ($55 per seat) are also available.
