When you play at Gila River Hotels & Casinos, you play for good. Did you know that under the Arizona Tribal-State Gaming compacts, 12% of the tribe’s contribution to the state has been invested back into Arizona to improve education, healthcare, conservation and public safety throughout the state? To show you how these tribal gaming revenues directly impact organizations, we are celebrating our partnership with Gene Lewis Boxing Club this month.
What is Gene Lewis Boxing Club?
Since 1954, Gene Lewis Boxing Club has promoted decency and prevented delinquency through services geared toward health, social, educational, vocational and character development for boys and girls in Mesa. The club serves youth from all walks of life and proudly provides athletes with direction, acceptance, encouragement and friendship through boxing and tutoring.
After School Programs
The club’s after-school program uniquely intertwines boxing training with tutoring, providing coaching and mentorship in a way that leads to good citizenship for some of Mesa’s most at-risk youth. While boxing is only offered for those ages 8 and older, Gene Lewis Boxing Club offers tutoring resources for people of all ages. Tutors from All Saints Day School and local high school honors societies volunteer their time to help members of the club excel in school, with the goal of graduating high school and attending college. Tutoring ranges from 4-year-olds to adults, offering instruction in early childhood development, literacy, STEM subjects and even English as a second language. Since 2004, Gene Lewis Boxing Club has had an incredible 98% graduation rate for students that have gone through their program.
Support from Gila River
The grant from Gila River helped advance Gene Lewis Boxing Club’s ability to teach and empower at-risk and under-served youth by providing funds for supplies and equipment critical for its after-school programs. This included iPads, boxing gloves, shoes, hand wraps, headgear, mouthpieces, uniforms and socks, as well as helped replace the boxing ring and provided stipends for volunteer tutors. This grant has helped Gene Lewis Boxing Club provide a successful boxing and tutoring curriculum for some of Mesa’s most deserving students.
When you play at Gila River Hotels & Casinos, you are helping Gene Lewis Boxing Club to provide a safe space, guidance and camaraderie for children in and around Mesa, putting under-served kids on a path toward success.
