Ray Fiore, whose community work and artwork is well-noted, is gaining notoriety for his involvement in sports as a charitable boxer.

A boxing training organization called H.O.N.K — Help Our Neighborhood Kids — that he is heading will benefit many neighborhood kids.

Ray is inviting everyone to come out to his Sheepshead Bay-based boxing center for an Open House and rockin’ Fundraising Party. Don’t forget to bring your checkbooks, because the H.O.N.K. center will soon be a not-for-profit set up to help keep neighborhood kids off the streets and engaged in sports.

Ray and his team have been working hard towards this goal and he gained media attention with a mention of his project in a New York Times article in 2007. Late last year, the New York Daily News featured Ray and his charitable project. With the information about the Open House and the Fundraising Party posted here and at, we hope that supporters will show up feeling generous so that the kids will not have to lay down the gloves.

Here are the details:
