The red carpet event will be held at Guastavino’s in New York with cocktail reception to start at 6 PM. This year’s gala will recognize the work of global leaders for their achievements in health, cultural arts, business, humanities, and philanthropy.

This new addition will be used as a surgical facility to continue the vision and legacy of the Phelophepa cause. “We have never been able to offer any surgical services to the patients, which has been a great concern and dire need,” says Cathe Kruger EVP American Friends of the Phelophepa Train (AFPT). She adds, “Imagine the excitement of people living in desolate impoverished communities when a new surgical train arrives to do cataract operations giving thousands of legally blind people a new day of light and sight.” Dedicated to helping their patients with cataract surgeries, the organization has decided to add a car to the two existing Phelophepa Trains starting in 2016 while Phelophepa III is constructed.
The Phelophepa trains deliver primary health care, education and outreach programs including, HIV/AIDS education. AFPT services include training community volunteers in basic healthcare and educating local schools and children. The South African Phelophepa trains travel throughout the country on a journey so worthwhile that the rural people refer to it as the “Train of Hope.” Its passengers are doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and counselors who deliver primary health care, empowerment and technology to those in need.
The gala held in New York City’s historical venue, Guastavino’s will include international dignitaries, American film industry (Hollywood) celebrities, and local and national socialites as guests. Artists from the Broadway Musical, “The Lion King” will be providing the main entertainment for the evening followed by a fashion show by designer Sergio Alain Barrios (SAB) who will be featuring a collection of men’s and women’s fashions created from African textiles.

Gleason’s is a boxing gym located on the Brooklyn waterfront. Since 1937, when the gym was founded in the Bronx, boxers with their eyes on Olympic glory or a shot at the title have been training at Gleason’s. Fighters who trained at the gym include Jake LaMotta, Roberto Durán, Benny “Kid” Paret, Gerry Cooney, and Mike Tyson. Before his first title fight against Sonny Liston, Muhammad Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, also trained at Gleason’s.
The gym was founded by Peter Gagliardi, a former bantamweight, who changed his name to Bobby Gleason. It moved to Manhattan and then to Brooklyn. Gleason’s is now owned by Bruce Silverglade.
Gleason’s is reminiscent of the time when New York was the center of the boxing universe, when there were dozens of serious gyms in the city and when big fights were often held in Madison Square Garden. Now Gleason’s is among the last of a breed. It manages to stay open by permitting average joes—men and women—to train side by side with professional boxers, and stages “White Collar Boxing” events that cater to this clientele.
There is also a wrestling school called the World of Unpredictable Wrestling run by WWE Hall of Fame member Johnny Rodz. Many wrestlers and wrestling promoters have come from there. Graduates include Tommy Dreamer, Matt Striker, Taz, D-Von Dudley and Vince Russo, Prince Nana, as well as Big Vito, Da Baldies, Elektra, Ricky Vega, The Musketeer, Mac Daddy Flexx, Tim Arson, Damien Demento, the late S.D. Jones, the late Rocco Rock, and many more.
There is a sign on the wall at Gleason’s, posting an invitation from the poet Virgil: “Now, whoever has courage, and a strong and collected spirit in his breast, let him come forward, lace on the gloves and put up his hands.” Prizefighters have long answered this call at Gleason’s and some still do. But now they’ve been joined by brokers and dentists.
There is an illustrated book called: “At Gleason’s Gym.” Owner Bruce Silverglade and Gleason’s elite trainer Hector Roca co-authored the book The Gleason’s Gym: total body boxing workout for women, with a foreword by actor Hilary Swank (she famously thanked Hector Roca when she received her Oscar for her role in the boxing movie “Million Dollar Baby.
