Caldwell Optimists work with the City to sponsor Silver Belt Invitational

Larry Blackburn used the Tell us a Story feature today to write about one of the Caldwell Optimist Club's signature events, the Silver Belt Invitational. He said:

An exciting night of amateur boxing will be held Saturday, February 12 sponsored by the Caldwell Optimist Club starting at 6pm. This annual event features young boxers 6 to 19 years of age and features competitors from throughout Idaho as well as Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Montana. Tickets will be sold at the door and proceeds will benefit various Caldwell Optimist youth projects and Police Athletic League (PAL) boxing. We hope to see you there! 
Visit www.caldwellpolice.org for more information.
The Silver Belt Invitational is a USA Boxing sanctioned event with 20 bouts in the evening. Due to the popularity of the exhibition, there will also be matinĂ©e bonus bouts from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Boxers from throughout Idaho, and nearby states including Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Montana are scheduled to participate.

Entry fees range from $5 in the afternoon and for youths to $15 (floor seating) in the evening. All money raised goes towards youth activities in the Caldwell area with a special emphasis on the PAL Boxing program.

This impressive program has been serving the community for over twenty years and by helping children make positive choices. Read more about the program here: Boxing program helps keep youths out of trouble.

Please contact the Caldwell Optimist Club to purchase a ticket today. They are also accepting volunteers for the day of the event to help with set-up and tear-down of the boxing ring and to help with concessions. Contact 208.455.3115 to learn more.
