On Dec. 2, 14 people were murdered and 22 were seriously injured in a terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, Calif.
“Thirty-six people were seriously hurt or killed in that mass shooting,” said Jesse Hernandez, former WWF/WWE wrestler/referee and 20-year CEO of the Empire Wrestling Federation. “Those people were totally innocent victims. They had families who loved them. We need to help them, and simply sharing good thoughts and talking about it is not enough. They need financial help.
“We believe the best way we can help is by doing a fundraiser. It will happen April 15 here in San Bernardino. We’d like to invite everyone to come to the event, see some amazingly good wrestling and please donate, knowing that 100 percent of our proceeds go to the Dec. 2 victims and their families.”
The ‘San Bernardino Strong’ Professional Wrestling Charity Event, hosted by the Empire Wrestling Federation, will occur Friday, April 15 at the Fox Theater, 374 W. Court St., San Bernardino, Calif. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the action beginning at 8 p.m.
