100 Years of Amateur Boxing in Aston - The Owen Moran Dinner

Friday 8 May 2009, Holte Suite, Villa Park

Hosted by Professor Carl Chinn, this event is being held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Aston Amateur Boxing Club.

The three-course dinner will be followed by a series of boxing bouts featuring some of the best young amateur talent in the region.

In association with Carson & Co (Solicitors), the Club is proud to present a very special evening to raise funds for the Birmingham Children's Hospital 'Kidney Kids' Appeal and the 'Owen Moran Fund', an appeal to restore the glorious old oil painting of this iconic Birmingham-born boxer.

Owen Moran, known as the 'Fearless', is regarded as a world bantamweight champion from the turn of the twentieth century and is widely recognised as one of the finest fighters ever produced in this country.

A splendid old painting of Moran used to hang in the Holte Hotel and was rescued following the closure of the pub during the late 1980s. With a bit of tender loving care, we hope to restore the painting to its former glory, raise the profile of Moran as a local sporting legend and ensure the painting – and the name Owen Moran – is preserved for generations to come.

During the build-up to the event, the Club is trying to locate its oldest surviving Champion, whose names feature on the Club's Honours Boards going back many, many years. If anyone knows of any such living local-legend, please get in touch!

Tickets for the event are priced at 40 per head. Individual tickets can be booked - as can tables of 8, 10 or 12 - by calling 0845 527 6291 or emailing info@carson-solicitors.com

Details of bout sponsorship are available on request.

Sponsored by Carson & Co (Solicitors) - www.carson-solicitors.com

(75 per cent of profit raised will be donated to the Birmingham Children's Hospital 'Red Balloon' Appeal; 25 per cent to the Owen Moran Painting Restoration Fund.)
