)-- The Queen of Hearts Foundation for Disabled Children, Inc recently received a donation of $3,000 from the “Left Hook Lacy Foundation.” These proceeds will go to help the Queen of Hearts foundation provide necessary therapy and equipment for its disabled children.
“I always knew there was a heart of gold hidden behind those golden gloves,” Michele Knott, founder of the Queen of Hearts said after receiving the donation. “From the time I started this foundation I knew deep down inside that there were people as great as Jeff Lacy in the boxing industry. This is the reason I chose; Give a child a fighting chance as the slogan for my foundation.”
“As we speak there is a family in Tallahassee waiting on a wheel chair accessible van and these funds are going to directly help turn this families dream into a reality” expanded Michele.
Michele Knott met Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee, FL earlier this month while attending a fight between Tomasz “Goral” Adamek and Chad “Bad” Dawson. This fight was sponsored and promoted by Don King Productions, Inc, which is headquartered in Deerfield Beach, FL.
