Montgomery Hosts First Professional MMA Event, Benefits Wounded Veterans
A new event is coming to town this weekend. Saturday's "Fight Night" is a sanctioned professional mixed martial arts event that's raising money for a good cause.
The event is drawing homegrown fighters and competitors from all over the Southeast.
For Montgomery native and co-headliner Marine Corps Captain Lee Stuckey, behind each punch there's a purpose.
One dollar from each ticket sold will go towards his non-profit organization "AHERO", which stands for America's Heroes Enjoying Recreation Outdoors.
It supports wounded veterans from hospitals around the United States, flying them here to enjoy hunting, fishing, or four-wheeling.
For more information on how you can donate to "AHERO" visit their website www.aheroes.com.
"Fight Night" will be held Saturday, July 28th at the Renaissance Convention Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the event begins at 7:30 p.m.
For tickets, go to ticketmaster.com. For information you can call (334) 558-7287 or (404) 285-3535.
