On Saturday, April 12, founding partner Jerry Lehocky was honored with the “Good Guy Award” at the 2014 Pennsylvania Golden Gloves Tournament hosted by Joe Hand Boxing Gym.
Since its founding in 1983, the Joe Hand Boxing Gym has been a safe haven for kids to learn about boxing, but also to better themselves academically. The facility includes a computer lab, complete with instructors, for children to study and finish their homework. Proceeds from the Golden Gloves Tournament will support Joe Hand’s operations of these important community resources.
At the event, Joe Hand recognized distinguished Philadelphians whose work aligns with the objectives of the Joe Hand Boxing Gym and Computer Lab and who have also made extraordinary efforts to the community. Jerry Lehocky’s work as a champion of labor as well as his political activism as the President of The Pennsylvania Association for Justice, demonstrate his deep civic commitment. Pond Lehocky is proud of Jerry for receiving this high honor!
