First a quick reminder: Today’s chat starts at 1 p.m. right here at the LoHud Yankees Blog. Stop by and jump into the conversation. Not sure how long it will go, but I’ll try to stick around for a while and get to as many questions as I can.
Harlem RBI is saying thank you to Mark Teixeira this evening, honoring the Yankees first baseman at the organization’s 20th anniversary gala. Teixeira really has given a lot of time and money to the organization. Good job by him.
Here’s the announcement from Harlem RBI.
Harlem RBI, an East Harlem-based academic and baseball/softball program which focuses youth on gaining college acceptance, will honor New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira and Cantor Fitzgerald Chairman & CEO Howard Lutnick for their support at its 20th anniversary gala at Cipriani 42nd Street on June 6.
Teixeira recently gave $1 million to Harlem RBI and has launched a campaign to raise additional funds to help finance a new mixed-use facility for the group’s DREAM Charter School and to support Harlem RBI’s wide range of programs. Lutnick’s leadership and longtime support has made Cantor Fitzgerald the largest corporate benefactor of Harlem RBI for more than 10 years.
