My name is Ronen Gold. I am a Westfield resident and an oral surgeon in town. On Saturday evening, June 3, I am going to step into the ring to fight against Gerry Cooney. Yes, the well-known heavyweight fighter (No I have not lost my mind).

This exhibition fight is a charity event which will benefit Youth Consultation Services. YCS is an organization that provides services to thousands of New Jersey families who have children (birth through adulthood) with special needs. Some of the children at YCS live in group homes and are separated from their loved ones. Some have been affected by trauma, others have intellectual and developmental disabilities that adversely affect their behavior.

This is the YCS annual fundraiser; our wish is to raise as much money as possible to provide for these children who desperately need our help. We are asking for support. Any donation no matter how big or small is greatly appreciated. The sponsorship and ticket form is attached. Your support is greatly appreciated. YCS website is
