Unity Day L.A. X KABOOM! 4th of July Celebration
Unity Day L.A. will kick off with a 1.5-mile walk for racial unity and reconciliation following the unveiling of a monumental statue of Harriet Tubman (created by the famous African American sculptor Manuelita Brown) at Lincoln Park in Pomona, and will end at Fairplex for the first annual Unity Day LA Celebration. Live music and celebrity boxing will highlight Unity Day LA, and it is the vision of Ray Adamyk, Founder and CEO of Pomona-based Spectra Company, to raise funds for the restoration of the Salem Chapel & Museum and the last stop on the Underground Railroad site in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.
Unity Day LA will include celebrity boxing exhibitions with actor Darris Love, comedy duo J. Valentino and Concrete, and musician Aaron Carter. In addition, Adamyk – a former Golden Gloves medal-winning amateur boxer – will dust off his gloves for a match against musician Chico DeBarge, who will also be performing two songs during the festivities.
Celebrity boxing commentators will include Shawn Porter and Victor Ortiz, and the event will be hosted by Paul Rodriguez, Tommy Davidson, and Kaliesha West. Boxing legends including the Mosley Family, Mayweather Family and more will be in attendance. A lifetime achievement award will be presented to Jack Mosley, two-time trainer of the year, and there will also be Pro and Amateur Boxing matches.
Performances by musical artists Ray J, Jacquees, Lakeside, Aaron Carter, Mali Music, Gap Band, Wylde Bunch, Chico De Barge, and more will keep the night alive with their vivacious beats and rhythms.
