Several years ago, I was asked to be a "Ringside" girl at a boxing event in San Antonio. Since I'm no where near being a "girl," I was extremely flattered and accepted the "gig"! Lol Please, click here(http://ritaverreos.blogspot.com/search?q=celebrity+boxing) to see images from that event which was the 1st Annual Ringside SA. That one was held at the University of the Incarnate Word's Burton Grossman Salon. Thanks to very hard work and excellent PR, the event has catapulted in size to this years location; The Freeman Colisseum.  What an Honor to go from "Ringside" girl to becoming the 1st Latina to Emcee this event. special thanks to Maritza Quiroz of CE Group for recommending me. 
I'm not gonna lie, after Emceeing the 2012 RINGSIDE SA Boxing Event, I was even more grateful to havebeen asked to Emcee and not box! These were serious bouts...blood flying and all, yikes!  Lord knows I paid in my dues on SURVIVOR FIJI-breaking my cartiledge in my nose during the "Sumo Wrestling Challenge" was enough:(

....I Survived, yay! 5 years later, all cleaned up:)

It was a pleasure to be in the Ring with the eloquent and very well know Ringside Fight Announcer, Mr. Lupe Contreras
 This event raised funds for the Southtexas Hispanic Fund. Kudos to the following talented and very professional women heading the Production of this succesful event: , Maricela Espinoza-Garcia & Marisela Barrera. People usually say "God works in mysterious ways."  In my life, God, actually, works in very clear ways. A few days ago, at a the "Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas" 5th year Anniversary event (https://www.girlscouts-swtx.org/) I met Mr. Dennis E. Noll,"SA Area Foundation" one of the main sponsors of Ringside SA (left). I was pleasantly surprised to find out was a big SUVIVOR fan!
