When it comes to who can raise the most money for charity, the gloves are off!
Sales agent Keith Dawson and title boss Michael Haltman will step into the boxing ring at the 10th Long Island Fight for Charity event this November.
The pair will join nearly two dozen business people who will go head-to-head in the ring to support Long Island Community Chest, Family Residences and Essential Enterprises (FREE), and The Genesis School.
Haltman, president and CEO of Hallmark Abstract Service, coaches with the not-for-profit Atlantic-Veterans Memorial Boxing Club.
And before getting into real estate, Douglas Elliman agent Dawson was an amateur boxer and competed in the NYC Golden Gloves, Empire State Games, and Metropolitan Championships.
In order to take part, the two men must not only undertake a rigorous training regime of jump rope, sparring, biking and weight training, they must also each raise a minimum of $5,000.
The Fight for Charity has already raised more than $700,000 and attracted over 150 “boxers” from a variety of professions. To find out more about Fight for Charity, sponsorship opportunities or to purchase tickets, visit www.lifightforcharity.org.
JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group has tapped Douglas Elliman to sell the handful of remaining units at Walker Tower, the eye-poppingly gorgeous conversion in Chelsea.
A-listers, including Cameron Diaz and Ryan Seacrest, have checked out apartments at 212 West 18th Street that was once a call center for the New York Telephone Company.
But it looks like they didn’t plop down the greenbacks for the nearly 6,000 s/f full floor penthouse at the top of the Ralph Thomas Walker-designed building, which is about to be listed for $55 million, we’re told.
Vicky Barron — who recently left CORE to join Elliman — will direct the sales effort at Walker Tower.

Of course you have! But we wonder where she’s going to land next and which city broker is helping her find a place.
