HORSHAM, Pa., April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AAMCO, the world's largest chain of transmission specialists and leader in total car care, is pleased to announce its support for the upcoming Charity Vision Fight Night fundraiser in Salt Lake City, Utah, which will bring together heavyweights of boxing and politics to raise needed funds to fight blindness. Since 1986 Charity Vision has been working to reverse the global epidemic of blindness. Across the globe nearly 39 million people live in total blindness; ninety percent of those are in developing countries.
"AAMCO and our franchise owners are proud to be supporting Charity Vision in their fight to find sustainable ways to cure the blindness problem in our communities at home and across the globe," said AAMCO President and Chief Executive Officer, Brett Ponton.
Charity Vision Fight Night is a world-class boxing event scheduled for May, 15, 2015 at the Rail Events Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Five-time world heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield, will face political heavyweight Mitt Romney in the featured bout.
"I've been fighting for most of my life- starting as a kid. I'm the Real Deal. And now I'm fighting, alongside AAMCO, to wipe out blindness because a real fighter can't turn down a challenge- especially one I know we can win," said Evander Holyfield.
One hundred percent of donations to Charity Vision go directly to fighting blindness. Charity Vision partners with local doctors in developing countries to find solutions to worldwide blindness. Money raised at this year's Charity Vision Fight Night will help further this mission.
For over 50 years AAMCO and its network of dealers have given back to the communities in which they operate, supporting worthy causes that impact customers' lives.
