When: September 15
Where: The historic Shelby City Parks Gym in Shelby, NC

Former World Wrestling Entertainment stars Billy Gunn (Kip James), "Hurricane" Shane Helms and Simon Grimm headline this star-studded charity event along with Lucha Underground Stars "MDogg" Matt Cross, Shane Strickland and the extremely talented PWX Wrestling roster. PWX is well known across the Carolinas for its fast past high energy family friendly wrestling events. All proceeds from the event to benefit the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. More than 10 million kids enter a children's hospital like Levine Children's Hospital across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children's hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit's mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. https://www.prlog.org/12726882-pwx-wrestling-and-loves-trav...
