The popular 16th Annual USA Wrestling event at Chester County High School occurred on Friday, March 6.
The yearly event is one that everyone from youngsters to elders love. “People look forward to this event every year,” event organizer, Terry Hearn, of Neo Products said. “They know about it before I even advertise it.”
Over the years, USA Wrestling has raised over $160,000 for the Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse, and this year it raised $10,000 for the organization. The event organizer, Terry Hearn, was amazed with how much money was raised.
“If it even changes the life of just one child, it means a lot to me,” he said. “It goes as a long way.”
