AMPA (August 26, 2015) — The inaugural Team Tarver Back-To-School-Drive was a major hit last week at Layla’s House (www.LaylasHouse.com) in Tampa, Florida.
Five-time world champion and world heavyweight contender, Antonio “The Magic Man” Tarver (31-6-1, 22 KOs), his son, unbeaten junior middleweight prospect Antonio Tarver, Jr. (3-0, 2 KOs), and some other Team Tarver members distributed school supplies last Thursday to underprivileged children in Tarver’s hometown of Tampa.
“There’s nothing better than seeing smiles on the faces of young children,” Tarver said. “I believe it’s important to give back in your community. We feel it’s very important for children, especially the youngest ones, to have supplies for the first day of school. We were able to provide them with essential supplies like book-bags, pencils, and notebooks. Hopefully, they feel better about themselves, attending school, and getting a good education.”
Team Tarver’s next planned function will be a Turkey Giveaway prior to Thanksgiving. For additional information, sponsorship inquires or to make a donation, please email email@example.com or visit its website at
