From the FBHOF:
Attorney Steve Yerrid of Tampa has been one of the strongest supporters of the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame since its inception, and has played a major role in getting the FLABHOF off and running. Along with his generous donations, Yerrid was been involved in both amateur and professional boxing in the Tampa Bay Area for several years and is founder of the Yerrid Foundation, a non-profit organization that focuses on child-oriented causes. Following his nomination by Governor Charlie Crist in 2007, he was recipient of the Perry Nichols Award, the Florida Justice Association’s highest honor, given to an FJA member who has fought for justice throughout his or her career. He is also a past winner of the Ted Williams Award and was personally recognized by Williams as a champion of children’s causes. He is an honorary lifetime member of the board for the Children’s Cancer Center and is a lifetime member of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation Board of Directors.
