Southfield, Mich. —Nov. 8, 2021— Moss & Colella, P.C., a law firm representing clients in the areas of personal injury and civil rights, was pleased to serve as a sponsor of Downtown Boxing Gym’s UnGala on October 26, 2021. The “sneaker chic” annual fundraising event took on a special purpose this year as the organization unveiled its new Dick’s Sporting Goods outdoor sports and learning complex.

The Downtown Boxing Gym (DBG) is a free after-school academic and athletic program that provides Detroit students, aged 8 to 18, with the tools they need to succeed. DBG has had a 100% high school graduation rate since its founding in 2007. Through tutoring, mentorship, enrichment programs, college and career prep, social-emotional skills building, and basic needs support like transportation and meals, the DGB trains kids for life.

Moss & Colella Senior Partner and co-founder David Moss’ affiliation with the Downtown Boxing Gym goes back to 2012 when he provided pro bono legal advice as the nonprofit organization sought to grow. He then helped establish the Downtown Boxing Gym’s original board of directors, serving as one of the first official members and gathering executives from international and local powerhouse organizations to serve. He continues his efforts with the gym to this day. Moss says he’s learned through his own law firm and nearly 35 years as an attorney that being a member of the legal profession brings with it both privilege and responsibility.

“Attorneys are frequently in a position to make a positive impact on the community, whether directly or indirectly, and I think we have a responsibility to do so,” Moss said. “We understand the importance of the law in securing and protecting individual and organizational rights, we have connections to people of influence who can support and further a community initiative, and we have the financial means and leadership experience to support an organization like Downtown Boxing Gym in expanding its outreach to kids who need it most.”
