Paragon League Wrestling to hold family friendly event Nov. 7 in Woodbridge

WOODBRIDGE >> Paragon is holding its second event "Paragon 2" on Friday, Nov. 7 at
7 :30 p.m. in the "Vine Auditorium" at the Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven, 360 Amity Road, Woodbridge.

The event will last about three hours and feature approximately 10 wrestling matches, post match interviews and color commentary. T-shirts, wrestling memorabilia and refreshments will be available for sale.

This is a "family friendly" event. No alcoholic beverages will be sold or served.

Ticket prices: $20 front row / $15 ringside seating. Group discount for youth and community groups $11 per ticket for ringside seats (regularly $15). For group sales, call 203-915-1977.

Hamden natives Nick D'Angelo and Mikey Chase, owners of the recently formed Paragon League Wrestling, previously worked for CTWE, a popular Connecticut independent wrestling company. After CTWE closed down about a year ago, D'Angelo and Chase revived and re-branded the company. One of the company's goals is to help change some of the negative stereotypes pro wrestling has acquired over the years, according to D'Angelo and Chase.

"We want our shows to be family fun events," D'Angelo said.

Paragon is also committed to community outreach. In addition to providing discounted tickets to local youth organizations, a portion of each event's proceeds is donated to a charity or non-profit organization that has an impact on the local community.
