Reminder: Jamie Varner Charity Seminar This Weekend!

World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight champion Jamie Varner is giving back to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Toys for Tots, and doing a canned food drive, by holding a charity seminar in Arizona on Saturday, Nov. 22.

The champ spoke to MMAWeekly Radio recently about putting the charity seminar together, and doing something good for his community.

“I wanted to do something for the people here in Arizona to kind of get to know me and people around the nation to get to know me, and see that I’m more than just a fighter and that I have a big heart, a kind heart,” Varner stated. “So it’s probably going to end up being a four to six hour seminar, free seminar. It’s going to be 100 percent charity derived.”

The seminar will take cash donations, unopened toys and canned goods, to help the above mentioned charities.
