Want to help out youngsters taking up boxing in Brownsville?

The Southmost Brownsville Community Boxing Club is hosting a "chalupa" lottery and buffet fundraiser this Saturday at the Golden Corral Restaurant located at 4555 N Expressway, Brownsville.

The chalupa will be held from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the restaurant and miscellaneous prizes will be awarded. The play is limited to adults and there will be no early birds. The price is four cards for $25.

The group trains in a gym above Tony's Body Shop  3407 Burton Drive and is owned by Tony Garcia, who lets the boxing club train there.
Boys and girls from all over the city are invited to train at the gym under the direction of Avila. Numerous fighters help out, including Eddie Vallejo, seen here with his nephew Raul Vallejo, Jr., who is one of the club's rising stars. Kassandra
Demetrio (above) is said to be one of the best 16-year-olds training there.

For more information on the lottery, call Coach Fred "Cacho" Avila at 459-5136.
