Hosted in Yankee Stadium’s Great Hall, local youth will be treated to a holiday extravaganza, complete with holiday decorations, festive music, including caroling by the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club Choir, and food and drink.
The New York Yankees Foundation has made a contribution in the amount of $25,000 in support of this effort to cover the costs associated with the event. A matching in-kind contribution was made by Neil and Amanda Friedman to aid in ensuring that each child in attendance receives a holiday gift.
“Once again, I am thrilled to work with the New York Yankees and all of our sponsors to make the holidays a little more enjoyable for thousands of Bronx children. This event is a great way for my office, together with the New York Yankees, to show the Bronx that the true spirit of giving is alive and well this holiday season,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
