Dmitry Druzhinsky of MatchPoint NYC Helps Raise $250,000 at Annual R Baby Foundation Fundraiser

The Foundation has donated $8 million to hospital programs and saved more than one million lives.

Brooklyn, NY - February 9, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

MatchPoint NYC, the premier fitness facility located near Brooklyn, NY, helped in raising $250,000 in funds for the R Baby Foundation by offering its top-notch tennis courts spanning a number of acres along Coney Island, offered by the generous hand of the facility’s co-founder and philanthropist Dmitry Druzhinsky.

The R Baby Foundation is America’s first and only nonprofit organization with the mission of saving infants’ lives by improving pediatric care, and to date, has donated $8 million to hospital programs and saved more than one million lives. The charity’s tennis tournament was created in 2010, by Jason Pinsky, “Six years ago I saw the foundation was doing a golf event, and I suggested we should do a tennis event. The first year was sort of a test and it went well, and the demand has been high ever since. We bring together a great group of competitive guys for a great cause.” In 2015 and 2016, the Foundation is proud to have raised over $500,000 for childcare initiatives including telemedicine with pediatric experts, mobile simulation training programs, and symposiums.

MatchPoint NYC is located on a three acre lot on Coney Island and features over 120,000 square feet of top of the line equipment and amenities, but its most notable aspect is an expansive nine court indoor tennis arena, the largest of its kind in Brooklyn. The luxury sports center was co-founded by Dmitry Druzhinsky in 2013, after noticing a lack of recreational infrastructure in the region. Due to his dedication to club’s members, employees, and the community, the complex has quickly become the preferred venue for families, professional athletes, and cause driven charity events. “They are great to work with,” said Darren Port, CEO of Powered by Professionals and one of the runners of this year’s tournament, “He 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 in keeping its expenses low to ensure that the money raised goes towards the cause, and MatchPoint’s generosity helps make that possible.”

Dmitry Druzhinsky is a South Brooklyn entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Inspired by his passions for tennis and community, he built and co-founded MatchPoint NYC, a $20 million venture located in Coney Island that is now the largest fitness center in Brooklyn, and second largest in all of New York. The complex contains state of the art facilities that can accommodate a diverse array of recreational and professional sports, including tennis, swimming, basketball, MMA, and weightlifting. Over one hundred classes are offered each week in three group fitness studios, ranging from a variety of topics including boot camp, yoga, and Pilates.

Kurt Busch steals spotlight from younger brother at Bristol

Aug 19, 2018

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Kurt Busch stole the spotlight from his younger brother Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway to snap a 58-race winless streak and grab an overdue short track victory. Busch won for the first time this season — first since the 2017 season-opening Daytona 500 — but it was his sixth victory on the 0.533-mile bullring he once dominated. Busch once won three consecutive times on the Tennessee track and was considered the best in the business on the concrete oval. Then his younger brother learned his way around the place, and Kyle Busch became the master of...

Scott Dixon qualifies 13th for Pocono race

Aug 19, 2018

LONG POND, Pa. — Scott Dixon has been about flawless as he chases his fifth IndyCar championship. He hit a minor bump at Pocono. Days after signing a contract extension with Chip Ganassi Racing, Dixon had one of his worst qualifying performances of the season. He starts 13th on Sunday, well behind his closest championship contenders. Dixon holds a 46-point lead over 2016 Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi in the standings. Rossi, Josef Newgarden and Will Power all have Dixon in sight with four races left in the IndyCar season. "I need him to have a bad run and I...

Power goes for 3rd straight win at Pocono to aid title shot

Aug 19, 2018

LONG POND, Pa. — Will Power flirted with the idea of hurling a baseball much like a cricket bowler would throw the ball toward a batsman. Power, an Australian former rugby and cricket player, had second thoughts as he took the mound to throw the first pitch before a recent Philadelphia Phillies game. "I'd probably get booed," he said, laughing. Even Aussies know what triggers the official sound of contempt in Philly. Power might have heard worse had fans tagged him as bad luck when he left in the fifth inning of Philadelphia's 24-4 loss to the New York Mets....

Column: NASCAR's dark cloud lifted after leadership change

Aug 19, 2018

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Keelan Harvick had the father-son weekend of a lifetime: He crashed a golf cart, drove a tiny race car, ran on a NASCAR track to collect his dad's checkered flag and got to ride shotgun alongside his old man to victory lane. The 6-year-old son of Kevin Harvick was the headliner of NASCAR's weekend for stealing the spotlight in Sunday's race-winning celebration at Michigan . The racing technically should have been the focus, but as this season plods along, NASCAR will take every light and fluffy moment it can get. After all, as Keelan hammed it up...

NASCAR's Big 3 running strong entering Michigan race

Aug 19, 2018

BROOKLYN, Mich. — NASCAR's Big 3 has essentially lapped the competition. Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. have combined to win 16 of 22 races and haven't allowed the field to win consecutive races with points at stake this year. Of the other 56 drivers who have started a race, only Clint Bowyer has won twice. That could potentially change Sunday in the Consumers Energy 400 because Chase Elliott won last week at Watkins Glen. Chances are, though, one of the series' top three drivers will finish first. Busch and Truex drive a Toyota while Harvick is in...
