A KNOCKOUT NIGHT
“I’m in awe of Nissim’s tenacity and determination,” Sharie said after her husband’s bout. “When people said it was impossible to box at his age , he made it happen in aid of the Sports for Hope Foundation.”
Health and fitness was the recurring theme of the night. The lots up for sale in the live auction—whose proceeds went to the Sports for Hope Foundation—included a 12-week body transformation package at personal training gym Ultimate Performance, and a Six Nations shirt signed by the English rugby team. Sabrina Fung-lam snapped up the latter, possibly as a gift for husband Kevin. Marie- Christine Lee-louey, who founded the Sports for Hope Foundation in 2008, took to the stage at the end of the evening to thank everyone for their support. The charitable foundation helps underprivileged children to become involved in various sports to unearth their potential, unleashing the inner power of the individual.
