Saturday, May 16, 2020 — Save the Date for the Beat the Streets Los Angeles 6th Annual Benefit and International Competition
Posted: February 12, 2020
The date is set for our Sixth-Annual Benefit and International Competition! On Saturday, May 16, 2020, some of the top women’s freestyle wrestlers from USA and Canada will go head-to-head in a friendly competition inside the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.
Our Benefit and International Competition has become a highlight event on the annual USA Wrestling schedule. The event’s influence has helped promote one of the fastest growing sports in the nation and the world, women’s wrestling. Bringing elite women wrestlers to Los Angeles helps inspire the growing number of girls in the region who participate in this great sport.
Fans and guests can expect to see some exciting wrestling and will have the chance to shake hands and snap selfies with some of the 2020 Olympians from Team USA and Canada.
The annual benefit is the largest fundraising event of the year and allows our organization to highlight its mission and the inspiring stories of the girls and boys in our programs. The funds raised support the transformational year-round programming provided by the Beat the Streets Los Angeles staff, coaches, tutors, and volunteers.
