Dmitry Druzhinsky, co-founder of the upmarket health and fitness complex MatchPoint NYC, understands the ongoing philanthropic endeavors can have on a community. By partnering with local charities and public welfare initiatives, the entrepreneur continues to provide crucial support for schools, hospitals, and at-risk youth. Druzhinsky believes that by contributing his time, services, and resources available, countless lives across New York City can be impacted in a positive manner.
In April of 2016, MatchPoint NYC was proud to host the 6th annual R Baby Foundation Tennis Tournament. The event took place in the center’s expansive indoor facilities, and both professional tennis players and Wall Street’s leading financers competed. The R Baby Foundation, America’s first and only nonprofit organization with the mission of saving infant lives through the enhancement of pediatric care, has contributed over $8 million to hospital programs and helped save more than one million lives. MatchPoint NYC was also chosen as the venue in 2015 for the 5th annual tournament, and Druzhinsky was pleased to announce that in those years over $500,000 was raised and donated to childcare initiatives, telemedicine with pediatric experts, mobile simulation training programs, and symposiums. “They are great to work with,” said Darren Port, CEO of Powered by Professionals and one of the runners of the competition, “He [Druzhinsky] has really gone out of his way to invite us to work with them, and that has helped make the event really special in the two years we have had it here. The foundation does a great job of keeping its expenses low to ensure that the money raised goes towards the cause, and MatchPoint’s generosity helps make that possible.”
Last January, local politicians and lawmakers gathered in MatchPoint NYC to raise awareness for social issues and partake in the Johnny Ray Memorial Pro Wall Ball Tournament. According to the co-founder, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. lead a friendly cross-town rivalry in an effort to engage inner city and under-served children in physical activity. In addition to spirited play, the inspirational leaders spoke on the importance sports have for public health and the empowerment of youth.
