Wrestling card to benefit March of Dimes

By Wes Holtsclaw

   Professional Wrestling has always been a form of family entertainment. This weekend, it will benefit a good cause and help give an area organization a good boost.
   Liberty Championship Wrestling will present a benefit card for the March of Dimes this Saturday, March 22 at Central Elementary School. The event will be a television taping.
   "We did it last year and raised a lot of money," said wrestler and promoter Allen Jarnagin. "It did real well and it's for a good cause. All of the proceeds we raise at the gate goes to them. It's something we'd like to do every year and all of the guys are donating their time for the event."
   "The event is a television taping," he said. "We just started doing television programs. We will be giving away door prizes, but the cause is to support the March of Dimes."
   The March of Dimes is a leader and pioneer in the fight to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality.
   The organization has "an outstanding track record of success and we are prepared to accomplish even greater things in the future to solve the problems of prematurity, birth defects, and low birth weight."
   The main event will feature a mixed tag team event with Stan Lee & Rebecca Lynn vs. Mike Hanson & Jade.
   Other matches include former WCW Superstar Eddie Golden vs. Josh Cody, a bunkhouse match between Tony Givens and Wade Adams, a chain match with Allen King vs. Jeff Storm, a tag team match pitting Eric Darkstorm and Justin Sensation against Shane Matthew and Chris Vega, and the opening match featuring Brady Hawks vs. Super Destroyer.
   Bell time for the event is 8 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for those who are 12 and under, with those under 6 getting free admission. The card is subject to change.
   "Last year, it was packed," Jarnagin said. "We are hoping that it's standing room only this time. We want to pack it in and raise a lot of money for a good time."
