Local News

Coming up next week, non-profit pro-wrestling organization Wrestling For Warriors will put on a show for charity. 

 Wrestling For Warriors Children’s Champion Nick Cutler and the Executive Director, Christopher Holt, joined First News Saturday for more information.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Wrestling For Warriors is more than just professional wrestling. It is a combination of taking children who are fighting disability or life threatening illness and giving them a reason to smile, mixed with philanthropy and topped with professional wrestling.

This year, they have selected Camp Red Cedar, which is a summer camp for children fighting disability. Last year they raised at the charity event $4,000 for Camp Watcha-Wanna-Do and helped about 50 children who are fighting disability or life threatening illness, to smile throughout the day.

Tommy Dreamer, runs a fairly large wrestling organization in the North East. He felt so convicted by the mission that he is donating the use of his branding for this show. He usually draws crowds of about 1,500 and he streams his events to approximately 500,000 viewers.

The Hardcore for Charity event is April 28th at the Grand Wayne Center. Tickets start at $10. Click here for more.
