Melee at the Met 2017

MMP was a proud sponsor of the fifth annual Melee at the Met event held on Thursday September 7, 2017. The event saw the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre transform into a venue for a live International Olympic-style boxing championship. This year’s fundraiser, in support of United Boxing Club and Variety, the Children's Charity of Manitoba, featured six international boxing matches between Team Canada and Team Mexico, and five Corporate Challenge bouts.

This year's event was especially significant for us at MMP Architects, as three of our staff participated in the Corporate Challenge component of the event. Aleks, Dustin, and Jess trained at United Boxing Club 4 times a week for 12 weeks for a chance to compete in the Melee Gala event. Dustin and Jess were lucky to be chosen to compete at the Gala event, and both fought exceptionally well, with Dustin winning both a championship belt as well as the coveted best bout belt!

Principals of the firm, Robert Wrublowsky and Chris Daly represented MMP’s commitment to give back to the community through their gold sponsorship at the event. As a thank-you for their generosity, they were asked to present a championship belt to the winner of the match that Dustin fought in and won, an excellent moment!
