American Burger, Athletes that Care, and Al & Friends present a Super Bowl Dinner for the disadvantaged on Sunday, February 2. We'll provide a warm meal while they watch the big game on our big TV and have fun. We're now seeking donations to help support this event.

You can sponsor a meal - $15 will feed a disadvantaged person in our community - and/or buy raffle tickets for a chance to win a new, 58" LED TV. We're also accepting gently used clothing items.

You can purchase raffle tickets and drop off donations before February 2 at American Burger (738 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey). Both Athletes that Care and Al & Friend are non-profit organizations, so your donations will be tax deductible.

Athletes that Care, founded by Matthew Gibbs, is a local group of high school athletes that provide sandwiches, clothing, and other items to homeless in Monterey.

Al & Friends, founded by Al Siekert, is a local group that serves breakfast to the homeless every Sunday at Window On the Bay Park in Monterey.

Start your year fresh - recharge your body, muscles and joints! Coach Masha of Boxing Strong and Ian Edwards of Five Point Palm Massage are offering a "Recharge Your Body" package, available on select days, January 13-25. Get a 45-minute private boxing training session and a 45-minute deep tissue sports massage for only $100. Book now for yourself or your special someone - appointments are available online.

Masha, founder of Boxing Strong, is a a former competitive fighter, athlete, coach, and a group fitness instructor in numerous fitness formats. She brings her boxing and training experience to her diverse range of clients with their various fitness and athletic goals. Masha works with her athletes to help them find their own physical and mental confidence through the art of boxing. For Masha, boxing is the most challenging workout she has ever done: it builds, tones, shapes, and sculpts the body, and most importantly, strengthens the mind.

While working for a physical therapist office, Ian Edwards brainstormed Five Point Palm Massage as a Pain Management Suite. The daily frind of physical therapy was missing something. It was lacking spirit and soul. In 2012, Ian traded down to a local, simple, unrefined pain management studio. Here the focus is raw deep tissue bodywork. FPPM advocates the use of our service as part of a balanced life that includes a healthy diet, sensible exercise, and a moderate intake of laughter.
