Homeport's "Strong Kids in Safe Neighborhoods" fund-raiser on April 28 at Hollywood Casino Columbus was a wonderful success thanks to many friends and partners including Columbus REALTORS.  

The program's featured speaker was boxer, author and entrepreneur George Foreman III, son of the former world champion heavyweight boxer. Foreman played on his Everybody Fights motto, threatening pushups unless attendees shouted out  "Fights" after he said the word "Everybody."  

Funds from the evening, including auctioned autographed boxing gloves from local boxing legends, went to support after school and summer programming in Homeport communities.  Prior to the event, Foreman visited middle school students at Homeport's after school program at Marsh Run Apartments.
