Check Into Cash Owner Allan Jones Sponsors Cleveland Middle School Wrestling, Praises Its First and Undefeated Female Wrestler

Press Release – updated: Dec 3, 2019 12:23 EST

CLEVELAND, Tenn., December 3, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Check Into Cash’s founder Allan Jones is proudly sponsoring Cleveland High School (Jones’ alma mater), which has dominated Tennessee wrestling over the past decade. His company has also sponsored Cleveland Middle School’s wrestling since 2011, funding jerseys, t-shirts, facilities and more. As a result, the CMS wrestling team is growing, and it recently added its first female wrestler, who remains undefeated.
A short-term lending company, Check Into Cash has locations across the USA. Jones uses the success of the company to give back locally, particularly to wrestling programs. CIC even funds Higher Calling, the local kids’ wrestling club that feeds into the middle school program.
“CHS is the only high school in Tennessee with two returning All-Americans and several State champs,” Jones said, “and this level of success starts with the kids’ program, Higher Calling. My wife, Janie, and I are proud of the fact that Josh Bosken, Coach of Higher Calling, is so good that families are relocating to Cleveland just to be part of the program, elementary through high school.”
One such family is the Fowlers, who relocated from Murfreesboro to Cleveland. Their mission? For twins Cy and Piper to join the best wrestling program in the South and continue their family wrestling tradition.
“I met their father when we were in high school,” said McKenzie Fowler, Cy and Piper’s mother. “I was the wrestling manager, and he was on the team. We’ve been together ever since, and wrestling has too.”
Cleveland Middle is the reigning State champ and has only lost one dual meet in the past six years. Getting on the team is no easy feat.
Seventh-graders Cy and Piper had to wrestle their way onto the powerful middle school squad. In the challenge matches, Piper pinned two eighth-grade football stars.
But Piper isn’t just a phenomenal wrestler. She’s Cleveland Middle School’s first female wrestler.
Wrestling at 130 pounds, Piper has a record of 16-0 with CMS. She has pinned 90 percent of her opponents and 100 percent of them have been male. Her lighter twin brother, Cy, is 15-1.
Both can be seen working out seven days a week at the Jones Wrestling Center, a state-of-the-art wrestling center, donated by businessman Allan Jones. Jones donated money for both CHS and Bradley Central High School’s wrestling buildings. Not surprisingly, these two high schools have the winningest wrestling programs in the history of the state of Tennessee.
Also not surprising is that Jones’ company, Check Into Cash, funds the two best kids’ clubs in the South—Cleveland’s Higher Calling Wrestling Club and Bradley’s Pride Wrestling Club.
And while he’s seen a lot of things in wrestling through the decades, Jones insists that Piper is unique.
“Piper has to be the only undefeated female wrestling boys at this level in the South,” Jones said. “She’s absolutely phenomenal.”

“You start to not feel like yourself when you lose your hair. You start to have confidence issues and it really can spiral out of control. When you don’t look good, you don’t feel good and your confidence level drops. It affects everything.”– Martino Cartier, Celebrity Hair Stylist

MIAMI (PRWEB) December 03, 2019
The fight to battle hair loss extends far beyond Capillus’s customers, products & physician partnerships. Outside of the company’s daily work, Curallux is proud to be an official sponsor of Wigs & Wishes powered by the non-profit organization Friends Are By Your Side.

Wigs & Wishes hosted their 7th annual grand gala event on October 27th at the stunning venue of Lucien’s Manor in New Jersey to help raise funds for the charity.
The host with the most for the night was none other than TV personality & musical star Paula Abdul, widely known for her appearances as a judge on American Idol. On the night, guests attended an ‘extravagant cocktail hour, with delicious hors d’ oeuvres, live entertainment, an exceptional auction, and a highly anticipated after party.’ Multiple wigs & wishes were granted for the lucky stars of the night.

“The Grand National Championships allow Yamaha to affect thousands of new music-makers from all over the country, and support students and educators in achieving amazing heights of musicality and creativity…,” said Heather Mansell, segment marketing manager, Education, Yamaha.

INDIANAPOLIS (PRWEB) November 25, 2019
The 2019 Bands of America (BOA) Grand National Championships concluded on Saturday, November 16, with Yamaha leading the way as National Presenting Sponsor of the event, a relationship the company has been honored to maintain for more than two decades.
As part of the company’s mission to empower music teachers to build strong programs through professional development, program advocacy and access to resources, Yamaha participated in the Future Music Educator roundtable to support and encourage new music teachers entering the profession. To bolster participants’ experiences at the event, Yamaha welcomed attendees to its booth to experience Yamaha SILENT instruments, a line of innovative instruments that allow players to practice silently using headphones. Family and friends were allowed to create signs to cheer on their favorite group at the company’s Cheerful Station, as well as take photos at a photo booth.
“Supporting music education in a meaningful way is what Yamaha stands for wholeheartedly, and our partnership with Bands of America and Music for All has helped us achieve that mission for more than 20 years,” said Heather Mansell, segment marketing manager, Education, Yamaha. “The Grand National Championships allow Yamaha to affect thousands of new music-makers from all over the country, and support students and educators in achieving amazing heights of musicality and creativity through the marching arts activity.”
The Championships, held November 14-16 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, attracted more than 12,000 participants, representing more than 90 high school bands from more than 20 states, as well thousands of live spectators and those watching the events via live stream. The marching event is the culmination of the BOA season, which includes 22 regional events held across the country.
The participating bands competed in preliminary contests last Thursday and Friday, with each band vying to become one of the top 38 bands to advance to Saturday’s semi-finals. The top 12 bands from semi-finals then competed in the Finals Saturday night, where their performances were judged by a panel of nationally-recognized music educators and marching band experts. In the end, Mike Howard, band director, led Vandegrift Band & Vision Dance Company from Vandegrift High School in Austin, Texas to the Grand National Champion prize. Jay Webb, director, and Matt Harloff, assistant director and Yamaha Performing Artist, led the Avon High School band from Avon, Indiana to a silver medal finish.

Real Estate Service Co-Sponsors Transgender Day of Remembrance Event, Honors Lives Lost to Violence

GayRealEstate.com Co-Sponsored Transgender Day of Remembrance Event in Palm Springs
Press Release – updated: Nov 21, 2019 16:08 CST

PALM SPRINGS, Calif., November 21, 2019 (Newswire.com) – GayRealEstate.com, a service which connects buyers and sellers with compatible agents, co-sponsored the Transgender Day of Remembrance event November 20 at Palm Springs City Hall. An annual observance that honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. The event was one among many occurring throughout the nation which served to honor the lives lost to senseless, discriminatory violence.
The event featured Ryan Cassata, an artist and activist, who shared his powerful story on how he traversed the obstacles of acceptance that every transgender person must eventually face.
GayRealEstate.com is committed to the rights and protections of transgender individuals in many ways; including providing monthly financial assistance to the National Center for Transgender Equality.
In 2018, advocates tracked at least 26 deaths of transgender or gender non-conforming people in the U.S. due to fatal violence, the majority of whom were Black transgender women, according to the Human Rights Campaign. At least 22 have been fatally shot, or killed by other violent means, in 2019 already.
The victims were killed by acquaintances, partners and strangers, some of whom have been arrested and charged, while others have yet to be identified. Many of these cases involve clear anti-transgender bias, according to the Human Rights Campaign.
The GayRealEstate.com team works to identify the best LGBTQ/LGBTQ friendly real estate agents in each state and region of the country and cultivates relationships and deep networks in each, to provide their clients the support they need to find ideal residency. The service GayRealEstate.com provides is one of many that LGBTQ individuals can use to bypass the potential for anxiety, discrimination and inequitable treatment.
