Hassle Free Barbell Club (named after a trucking and moving company that sponsors it) reflects Kevin and Paul Doherty's focus on helping "at risk inner city high school kids," and some of their lifters, from Lincoln High School in San Francisco and Sacramento High School in the Golden State's capitol, are on their way to the the school age Pans Ams in St. Louis this summer, and the purpose of this dinner - which featured really good Italian food - was to help support this trip.
