ARES, a locally owned professional boxing promotions company, is providing the 16 students free admission to its upcoming Fight Night series event.
“We are happy to help Brian Cody provide these kids the opportunity for a unique experience,” said ARES’ Adam Neary. “In addition to raising the awareness of the talented professional athletes we have in the Capital Region, ARES strives to provide the community with another outlet for high-quality entertainment.”
Brian Cody and local amateur boxer Javier Martinez will be chaperoning the kids, along with the school’s Principal Thomas Giglio.

Today’s Limo is also pitching in to let these students ride in style.
