Dmitry Druzhinsky notes April of 2016 saw MatchPoint NYC host the 6th annual R Baby Foundation Tennis Tournament. The event was facilitated inside the expansive indoor tennis center, and both professional tennis athletes and Wall Street’s leading financers participated. The R Baby Foundation, the country’s singular nonprofit organization aiming to save infant lives through the enhancement of pediatrics, has donated over $8 million to hospital programs and worked to save more than one million baby’s lives. In 2015, MatchPoint NYC also hosted the 5th annual tournament, and Druzhinsky is happy to announce that in those years more than $500,000 was raised and donated to childcare programs, telemedicine with pediatric experts, mobile simulation training initiatives, and symposiums. “They are great to work with,” said Darren Port, CEO of Powered by Professionals and an event organizer, “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.”
