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.

As retirement approaches, is Danica Patrick a Hall of Famer?

May 23, 2018

DETROIT — As Danica Patrick prepares for her farewell at this weekend's Indianapolis 500, another big event on the auto racing calendar looms earlier in the week: The vote for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Jeff Gordon is the big name among the nominees for Wednesday's vote , but as Patrick's retirement approaches, her own candidacy for an honor like that has become an interesting topic. Ed Carpenter, this year's Indy 500 pole winner and Patrick's team owner for Sunday's race, was asked if she should receive Hall of Fame consideration. "I think so, yeah," he said at an event...

Bumped from Indy, Hinchcliffe plans to help teammate win

May 23, 2018

NEW YORK — James Hinchcliffe once likened Indianapolis Motor Speedway to a cruel mistress. A few days ago, he found out just how cruel when he was bumped from the race that means the most to him — and really, any IndyCar driver. One of the circuit's most popular competitors and a likely contender for the overall championship, Hinchcliffe and his No. 5 car did not make the field for Sunday's Indianapolis 500. But he isn't expressing any animosity toward the 2 1/2 mile oval, however. Nothing even close. "The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a tricky track, a very temperamental...

Brickyard to toy bricks: Danica Patrick gets Lego statue

May 23, 2018

NEW YORK — When Danica Patrick drives her final race in the Indy 500 on Sunday, she'll certainly be the only competitor with a Lego statue in her image. While that won't help her win IndyCar's biggest race, it does speak to Patrick's popularity. Maybe she wasn't a rousing success behind the wheel in open wheels or NASCAR, but she has made an impact that reaches far beyond the ovals and road courses she raced. "I think that it is a really unique and cool memory to have. Does anyone else have a Lego portrait, and full life-size?" she said...

Consumer Reports raises concerns over Tesla Model 3 braking

May 23, 2018

DETROIT — Long emergency stopping distances, difficult-to-use controls and a harsh ride stopped Tesla's Model 3 electric car from getting a recommended buy rating from Consumer Reports. While the magazine said the car has exhilarating acceleration and handling, testers were troubled by its 152-foot average stopping distance from 60 miles per hour in emergency braking tests. The magazine said the distance was worse than any modern car it has tested, and is about 7 feet longer than a Ford F-150, a full-size pickup truck that weighs about twice as much as a Model 3. Tesla said in a statement that...

Wickens crashes, teammate Hinchcliffe still without 500 ride

May 23, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS — Robert Wickens crashed Monday during the second-to-last practice for the Indianapolis 500, another headache for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports just two days after top driver James Hinchcliffe failed to make the field for the showcase race. In addition to finding a way to get one of its two Canadian drivers into the 33-car starting field, the team now must repair Wickens' car, too. The final practice is Friday, two days before the race. "It's been a very rough two weeks, to be honest," team general manager Pierre Phillips said. "There's a long way to go to race day, so...
