The Iranian American community is helping Beat-the-Streets Wrestling in its efforts to keep wrestling in the Olympics. Beat-the-Streets Wrestling, a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is sponsoring a wrestling event on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. between the United States and Iran at the historic Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal in New York. This will be the first time Iranian wrestlers have come to the U.S. in 10 years.
Thanks to the generosity of members of the Iranian American community, PAAIA has received donations of a number of complementary tickets to the USA versus Iran wrestling match. These highly coveted tickets (which will NOT be sold individually) will be distributed on a first-come first-serve basis. Please email email@example.com with your request for tickets and include the following information:
Subject: “USA versus Iran Wrestling”
Number of Tickets: 1 or 2
There will be a limit of two (2) tickets per inquiry, and no re-sales are permitted. These tickets are also only for the USA versus Iran match and not the USA versus Russia match taking place later in the day. Please note that tickets are required to attend this event and there will not be any standing room or walk-up admission.
Individuals not able to secure tickets may watch the event live on channel 4. PAAIA will follow up with details of a central location for non-ticket recipients to meet at to watch the matches.
PAAIA would like to thank the generous Iranian American community members who helped raise funding for this event by covering the expenses of the Iranian wrestling team and donating tickets for the community to attend the event. All funds raised by the Iranian American community beyond these expenses will be donated by Beat-the-Streets to support the preservation of Olympic wrestling.
