The Team is a 501c 3 charity that has been raising funds since 1976 including ½ million dollars in donations to various charities. The recent donation to Revere’s Program was from the proceeds of last month’s Battle of the Beach 3. The 10 match event,  sponsored by The Massachusetts State Police Boxing Team and USA Boxing, took place at Oceanside Events Center in Revere.  Revere Police’s own Officer Joe Singer and Sgt Dennis Hickey took part in the event.  The money will be used to help continue to expand the thriving boxing program.
