BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM

EVENT: Fighters4Life Showcase

EVENT DATE: Nov 16, 2013

THE STORY:

A public relations powerhouse whose agency Swanson Communications promoted some of the highest grossing pay-per-view events in history, including the recent Mayweather vs Canelo blockbuster, Kelly has been pushing hard for years while sticking by her ‘never say never’ mantra.

As a kid growing up in Buffalo, she saw firsthand the value of hard work from her mother Doris, who she calls her role model. A woman who, after a divorce, raised 5 kids on her own while simultaneously earning her PhD.

Kelly likewise put in the time at a prominent NYC-based sports PR agency prior to opening up her own company in 1997, her greatest accomplishment.

Ever the boxing aficionado, Swanson’s not only the publicist for the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Bernard Hopkins and a staunch supporter of those in the amateur game, but also someone who gets in the ring herself. She enjoys her time training with Devon and Heather at Gleason’s.

Given that, she’s beyond elated to be putting up her dukes on behalf of our fantastic charities. "I can't wait to fight for charity. I usually leave the fighting in the ring for my clients but for one night I can do it myself."
