Vancouver BC- May 17, 2017 – Local Vancouver chef Taylor Van Zant is training for the 6th Annual Aprons for Gloves Restaurant Rumble event to be held Wednesday, July 26th at the Commodore Ballroom. Taylor is head chef at the Tap & Barrel, located on the False Creek Seawall in the heart of Olympic Village.
Every year bartenders, chefs, dishwashers, servers and baristas get together to train at the Eastside Boxing Club to fight in Restaurant Rumble.
Aprons for Gloves Boxing Association is a non-profit organization focused on providing community outreach through the sport of boxing.
“I've been into boxing since I was ten years old and it's always helped me with stress, confidence and physical training. This fundraiser really matters to me because people need a place to push themselves physically and mentally to a better place. Helping support inner city kids having an outlet for their physical side and a safe space for them to challenge each other matters. This is a community project and it needs to matter to more people.” -Taylor Van Zant, Chef at Tap and Barrel, Olympic Village http://tapandbarrel.com/

Founded in 2012, Aprons for Gloves Boxing Association is a non-profit organization focused on providing community outreach through the sport of boxing. Based in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, the organization was developed by a small group of professionals and entrepreneurs who seized an opportunity to re-establish a historic boxing program for at-risk women and youth. The program offers free mentorship and training to individuals who may otherwise not have the resources or support to participate in such activities.
The sport of boxing teaches discipline, respect, hard work and self-control. Training results in positive self-esteem, good health and camaraderie for its practitioners.
