Curtis Granderson Launches Home Run Charity Challenge

Posted in Philanthropy at 2:01 pm by philanthropynews

In support of its all-star resident Curtis Granderson, 515 East 72nd Street/Miraval Living – a luxury condominium located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side – will donate $1,000 for every home run the New York Yankee hits starting August 1, 2010 until the end of the regular season, which hopefully includes the playoffs. The homerun event will raise money for Curtis Granderson’s charity, Grand Kids Foundation.

“It’s an honor to have such a well-respected athlete living here in our building, and also exciting that he’s a New York Yankee,” said Jim Sheehan, Project Manager of 515 East 72nd Street/Miraval Living. “We feel this is a great opportunity to not only cheer on our favorite player, but raise money for a good cause.”

With 62 games left in the Yankee’s season, Granderson has plenty of time to help the Yankees get into the playoffs, while hitting homeruns for his charity. “I am excited that Miraval Living is making a commitment to the Grand Kids Foundation and inner city education by making a donation for every homerun I hit for the rest of the season. It is a great way to tie together success on the field for the Yankees organization and impact off the field for so many students,” said Curtis Granderson.
