LIVE Pro Wrestling ‘Summer Showdown’ Comes to Mt. Vernon to Benefit the Spero Family Services YouthBuild Program

Alton Family Construction and Renshaw Title & Abstract are excited to announce a LIVE Pro Wrestling event being held THIS Saturday, June 10th from 6:00-9:00pm in the gymnasium at Summersville Grade School – 1118 Fairfield Rd in Mt. Vernon, IL. Doors open at 5:00pm.

Come early for a meet and greet with Cowboy Bob Orton, WWE Hall of Famer, then stay for all the action in the ring – bell time at 6:30pm. Kevin Hunsperger from WSIL-TV 3 joins us as our official ring announcer, and Sheriff Travis Allen and Charlie Wilkey will be guest referees. You won’t want to miss the fun!

General admission tickets are $10 at the door or $25 for VIP ringside seats. Call 204-8230 or 316-2065 for tickets in advance. Concessions will also be sold at the event.

“This will be a great family-fun event, and these men truly have a passion for giving their time and talents to help organizations like YouthBuild, which is a program that gives youth the chance to get their HSE/GED and learn a trade to help them become successful, young adults,” stated Ryan Alton, YouthBuild program director.

Youthbuild is a program of Spero Family Services, and is available in both Jefferson and Marion counties. This program allows youth ages 17-24 to complete their GED/HSE certificate, plus earn a certificate in either a construction trade or as a CNA. They are currently taking applications for their next cohort, and you can apply online today at www.sperofs.org/youthbuild.

Please join us on Saturday, June 10th!
