Blue Collar Boxing is an exciting and competitive fundraiser that features local labor union members fighting against each other in the ring. Anyone can buy a ticket to see local union members fight at the Liberty Union Arena (previously the Ralston Arena). All proceeds from the event go to the United Way of the Midlands and the Nebraska Center for Workforce.
We’re all fighting for the same thing: a better, stronger and more vibrant community. Hosted by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) with support from United Way of the Midlands, proceeds from Blue Collar Boxing will strengthen our community by supporting the efforts of United Way of the Midlands and the Nebraska Center for Workforce Development and Education. Event proceeds will benefit United Way of the Midlands and the Nebraska Center for Workforce Development and Education.
