A Pro Wrestling fundraiser will be held at Geibel Catholic Junior-Senior High School Saturday.

The Championship Wrestling Federation will present the event for the second time at the school. The first show in March of this year was a sell-out.

The card will once again feature an eight-man Geibel Invitational tournament. The first tournament was won by Kato. He defeated Brock Singleton. Both wrestlers return, as does Geibel's own Powerhouse Hughes, along with Dan Sandwich, Chris Marx, Ashton Amherst, and several others.

A tag title rematch between Party Gras (Lord Zoltan and Justin Sane) and the former champions, the Mercenaries (Sniper and Nasty Nick), will be held.

“The event is a fundraiser for both the boys and girls basketball teams and the students are excited. Both booster groups have been doing their part and this show is going to be better than the last one,” said Bill Hughes, Geibel school counselor with Intermediate Unit 1 and newly hired varsity boys basketball coach.

“So this is sort of like a kickoff for the season as we start basketball practice two weeks later. But for me, it is about all of the students and giving them a chance to come have some fun. They see me in school, but now they have the chance to see me wearing a different hat,” added Hughes.

The students at Geibel have gotten caught up in the excitement. They have designed the new event shirts and will pick Hughes' entrance music. Their most important project will be picking Hughes' opponent the night of the show.

Hughes stresses this is most definitely a kid-friendly and family oriented event. The doors open at 6 p.m. Saturday, bell time is 7 p.m.

Tickets are $15 ringside, $12 general admission for adults, $8 general admission for students. Tickets are available at the school, located at 613 E. Crawford Ave., during regular school hours, 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Those with questions can call 724-628-5600.

“The first show was a huge success for the school and we are excited to be doing another event. We have another one set already for February 2014,” said Hughes.
