LOS ANGELES, CA: KnockOuts For Girls (KO4Gs) charity is holding a Holiday Benefit for KO4Gs programs, along with never before seen clips from Jill Morley’s groundbreaking documentary film on female boxers, “Girl in the Ring” on December 17, from 7 – 10 pm,  in Los Angeles at DAP Studios in LA.

This boxing-themed holiday party will keep you punching through the holidays! Complete with a red carpet, DJ, photo booth (photo galleries available to download the next day) drinks, eats, raffle prizes and boxing celebrities (names to come) — ; this party will be a fun and fabulous way to enjoy yourself while also helping others.

Proceeds will go towards: Fulfilling the gift wishes of the orphans at Hillside Foster Home (www.Hillsides.org);, more assistance for KO4G the boxing program for at-risk girls;, and finishing funds for Jill Morley’s “Girl in the Ring,” a documentary film about empowering women who use boxing to overcome adversity. 

Filmmaker Morley stated, “Being the Director of Knockouts Boxing Programs is a way to put into action both the mission of KO4G and of my film.  Watching these girls grow more confident and open up over the weeks is the best reward.” 

KnockOuts for Girls is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization that puts on female boxing events to raise money to grant empowering, confidence building, educational, encouraging and inspiring wishes (using boxing as a main focus) that will enrich the lives of deserving at risk girls and impact their lives in a positive way. 

Jill Morley, in addition to teaching boxing, is an accomplished documentary filmmaker.  Her newest film, “Girl In The Ring,” sensitively captures the adversity female boxers face, while telling a larger story about abuse, trauma, sexism and healing. Morley’s previous award-winning documentary, “Stripped,” ran on the Sundance Channel and won Best Documentary at the Women’s International Film Festival in Sydney.

Her short, “Eye Poppin,” premiered at the AFI Film Festival.  A contributing writer to several periodicals including The Village Voice, Bust Magazine, and The New York Press, Morley also produced radio documentaries for NPR. She was a producer/correspondent for Michael Moore’s “The Awful Truth.” 

Morley wrote and performed the critically acclaimed play; “True Confessions of a Go-Go Girl,” which was published in The Best Women’s Plays of 1998, ran Off-Broadway for several years and was made into a Lifetime Movie of the Week.
