GOOD TIDINGS FOUNDATION & PITCCH IN FOUNDATION UNVEIL RENOVATED TEEN CENTER AT MADISON SQUARE BOYS & GIRLS CLUB COLUMBUS CLUBHOUSE
BRONX, NY (MAY 11, 2018) – Good Tidings Foundation, in partnership with PitCCh In Foundation, unveiled a renovated teen center for the members of Madison Square Boys & Girls Club’s Columbus Clubhouse, in the Bronx. The opening of the space was celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony that included appearances by New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia and his wife Amber. Joining them were teen members and staff from both Madison Square Boys & Girls Club and Good Tidings Foundation.
Funding for this project was initiated by CoreMedia Systems 25th Anniversary Concert in January 2018 and resulted in a $130K donation used toward the space. Additionally, Schimenti Construction took the lead on the renovation with the support of Huffman Koos. The whole project was possible because of PitCCh In Foundation’s long-standing relationships with both Good Tidings Foundation and Madison Square Boys & Girls Club.
The renovated teen center will provide teens at Madison Square Boys & Girls Club’s Columbus Clubhouse with a dedicated, safe, and comfortable place, where they can work on homework, connect with mentors and friends, and participate in various activities and volunteerism. The lounge will include all new furniture, including study tables, billiard tables, and large flat-screen TVs. Additionally, a completely new kitchen was added to the room, as well as state of the art lighting and a wireless Sonos music system.
