A two-time world champion boxer, boxing commentator, and TV personality, Maureen Shea is considered “The Real Million Dollar Baby,” having served as Hilary Swank’s primary sparring partner in Swank’s Oscar award-winning role in Million Dollar Baby.
For Maureen, the City Center holds a very special place in her heart. As a domestic violence survivor, she’s been fortunate enough to share her story of hope and strength with the women at the City Center, who have become like sisters to her. Maureen has also worked with and shared a bit of her boxing and struggles as a youth with kids at The City Center.
“I am so happy to help my extended family by participating in the Salsa Festival!” says Maureen.
