The final line-up for the Long Island Fight for Charity, a charity boxing tournament celebrating its 10th anniversary, will be announced Monday night at a professional networking event in Carle Place.

More than 20 business professionals will begin training now for the main event in November.

The boxers include lawyers and accountants and others who each must raise $5,000. The event is organized by the nonprofit Long Island Community Chest in Melville, which gives grants to organizations that help people with autism and other disabilities or diseases.

Over the years, the fights have raised $700,000.
