The school gymnasium at Caraway will be the site of a benefit wrestling event at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 20. Proceeds from the event will go to the Buffalo Island Relay for Life.

Reggie Montgomery, who operates HCW Wrestling, has coordinated the event which will include some Buffalo Island talent. Ricky Gonzalez, whose father, Julio Gonzalez, died of cancer in 1998, will be one of the featured wrestlers.

Others on the card are "Freezer" Thompson, "Blazer I," Blazer II," "Wild Thang," Austin Lane, "X-Kalibur," "Enforcer," "Rampage," Johnny Hawk, and "Dynamite Kid," and more.

The event provides an opportunity for wrestling fans to enjoy a quality wrestling program and actively participate in another struggle, the fight against cancer.

Admission fees are children six and under free; children 7-12 $4 and 13 and up $5.

Sheila Spurlock, chairman of the Buffalo Island Relay for Life is urging residents of the area to turn out to enjoy the performance of the wrestlers as well as showing support for the fight against cancer.
