Finally, a portion of proceeds from ticket sales made through www.takeonnyc.com (just enter the word "donate" in the Company Field) between now and Friday, November 9th will also be donated to help residents of areas most affected by the storm.
“From the beginning, our mission has been to grow the sport of Muay Thai, and to give the fighters who work so hard an opportunity to really shine. Now we have a responsibility to help others on a much larger scale”, added TaKe-On Productions President Eddie Cuello.
