A number of independent wrestlers have united for a charity event happening on April 15, 2016. It will be to raise money to help the victims of the San Bernardino spree killing, which occurred on December 2, killing 14 and injuring 22, and is titled “San Bernardino Strong: A Benefit to Help the Victims of the 12.2.15 Tragedy.”
Here is the press release:
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.—On December 2, 2015, 14 people were murdered and 22 were seriously injured in a terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California.
“Thirty-six people were seriously hurt or killed in that mass shooting,” exclaims Jesse Hernandez, former WWF/WWE wrestler/referee and 20-year CEO of Empire Wrestling Federation. “Those people were totally innocent victims. They had families who loved them. We need to help them, and simply sharing good thoughts and talking about it is not enough. They need financial help,” he continued. “We believe the best way we can help is by doing a fundraiser. It will happen April 15th here in San Bernardino. We’d like to invite everyone to come to the event, see some amazingly good wrestling and please donate, knowing that 100% of our proceeds goes to the Dec. 2nd victims and their families.”
The “San Bernardino Strong” Professional Wrestling Charity Event will take place Friday night, April 15, 2016 at the Fox Theater, 374 W. Court Street, San Bernardino, CA. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the action beginning at 8:00 p.m.
