The Terrace Diner of Bayside hosted a boxing-themed charity event last week in conjunction with Winner Take All Productions to benefit St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children.
The event included food, prizes and the opportunity to meet boxing legends, all to benefit children with special needs and medically complex conditions at St. Mary’s.
“The children of St. Mary’s present a cause that we just had to get involved with, and we’re excited to continue this relationship with St. Mary’s kids,” said Jimmy Papageorgiou, co-owner of the Terrace Diner.
For the event, the diner served a five-course dinner with prizes and drawings throughout the evening to raise money for the hospital.
Winner Take All Productions also presented a lineup of boxers, including two former welterweight champion and Olympic gold medalist Mark Brenland, former world champions Juan Laporte and Michael Bentt and Bayside’s own Fred Liberatore — all of whom share the same concern for the welfare of St. Mary’s Kids.
“As a business in the Bayside and Bay Terrace area, we feel it is essential to support great projects like St. Mary’s and help the community in whatever capacity that we can,” said Peter Kaouris, co-owner of the Terrace Diner.
St. Mary’s Hospital works with children who are battling complex medical and life-limiting conditions due to serious illness, injury and complications of premature birth.
