This is a great tournament for a great cause!
On March 6, there is a men and women’s saber open at Manhattan Fencing Center with proceeds to benefit the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. This hospital takes care of some of our countries sickest children and they need our help!
Fencer Adam Mandel, recently accepted to Brandeis University, is organizing this event. NCAA champion Jeff Spear and I will also be going to the hospital again to teach the kids fencing in conjunction with the fundraiser.
