In this edition of The TREC Podcast, we’re previewing next week’s FightNight 30! Listen in as 2018 FightNight Chair Chris Hipps of CBRE chats with TREC’s resident boxing expert, Steve Crosson (Capright)!
Known as TREC’s resident boxing expert and one of the board members credited with creating FightNight, Crosson is a boxing lifer. He has refereed World Boxing Council title bouts in the United States, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Venezuela and Mexico, and has served the organization as its treasurer and U.S. spokesman. Though Crosson has also been part of more than 50 black-tie charitable boxing events across the country, he tells Hipps that the others don’t quite compare to the one that started it all, right here in Dallas.
TREC will celebrate its 30th FightNight on April 26 at 7 p.m. at the Hilton Anatole. Tickets to FightNight and its afterparty are available now, but please note that you will not need to purchase an afterparty ticket if you have a FightNight ticket. You may also purchase presale FightNight raffle tickets or donate to the event through Monday, April 23.
Proceeds from this year’s FightNight benefit the Dallas Catalyst Project, a new three-year philanthropic initiative TREC is undertaking in partnership with the Cornerstone Baptist Church, St. Philip’s School & Community Center, CitySquare and the iconic Forest Theater to provide grants and professional services to revitalize part of the South Dallas-Fair Park neighborhood.
