Atlas book signing is Thursday


Legendary boxing trainer and commentator will be at the Hilton Garden Inn

A good read. A good time. A good cause.

That’s what’s in store for those who turn out on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, Bloomfield.

Legendary boxing trainer and commentator and Stapleton native Teddy Atlas will be signing copies of his new book, “Atlas — From the Streets to the Ring: A Son’s Struggle to Become a Man,” at the Hilton.

The $75 cost — a contribution which is tax deductible — will include a gift bag containing a copy of the book; refreshments (beer/wine/soda and hors d’oeuvres); and the chance to not only meet Atlas, but surprise guests from the boxing world.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Dr. Theodore A. Atlas Foundation, the charitable organization named after Atlas’ late father that has provided both physical and financial support to a countless array of worthy causes on the Island.

For more information, including how to purchase tickets prior to the event, call 718-980-7037 or 646-645-4681. Tickets will also be available at the door on Thursday.
