Dmitry Druzhinsky began the most ambitious project of his career in 2012: a $20 million process to develop New York’s most elaborate health and fitness destination. After a strenuous negotiation process, a coveted three-acre plot of land in Coney Island was obtained, and plans to develop the largest complex of its kind in Brooklyn, at 120,000 sq. ft., were drawn. Upon conclusion of development in 2014, MatchPoint NYC successfully raised the standard and expectations for recreational centers throughout the Big Apple, becoming the desired workout space for families, professional athletes, and high-end philanthropic events. The center’s unparalleled, luxurious facilities allow for an expansive collection of training programs, league sports and group classes that similar rec centers simply cannot accommodate, while its professional and highly trained staff of certified instructors, personal trainers and nutrition expers inspire, challenge and support members in improving their overall health and wellness.
Dmitry Druzhinsky notes that the R Baby Foundation is the first and only nonprofit organization in the United States with the mission of saving infants’ lives through improved pediatric care, and has donated $8 million to hospital programs and saved more than one million lives to date. Jason Pinsky created the charity’s tennis tournament in 2010. “Six years ago I saw the foundation was doing a golf event, and I suggested we should do a tennis event,” he says. “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 honored to have raised over $500,000 for childcare initiatives such as telemedicine with pediatric experts, mobile simulation training programs, and symposiums.
On Saturday, April 16, R Baby Foundation’s annual tennis tournament took place at MatchPointNYC for the second year in a row. The center’s co-founder, Dmitry Druzhinsky is happy to announce that more than $250,000 was raised at the event, which hosted tennis professionals and Wall Street’s leading financers.
