The Brooklyn Nets, in their tireless effort to get involved in the Brooklyn community, are dedicating a Brooklyn Nets-themed renovated gym Wednesday in Brooklyn. The project is spearheaded by Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark, and officially from the Yormark Family Foundation. The Nets will dedicate the gym to the Navy Yard Clubhouse at the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club at 240 Nassau Street in the Fort Greene Neighborhood.
Some info on the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, courtesy of… well, the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club:
Since 1884, Madison has been saving and enhancing the lives of youth by providing after-school and summer programs for children in New York City’s most disadvantaged communities. Programs are engineered to empower each member to achieve three priority outcomes: Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and the adoption of a Healthy Lifestyle. Every day, Madison provides thousands of children with a safe and positive environment, one where fun is encouraged and positive role models are plentiful. A founding member of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Madison currently serves more than 5,000 youth, ages 6 to 18, at seven sites throughout Brooklyn and the Bronx as well as at Camp Madison in Kingston, New York.
According to the Nets, the Brooklynnettes will be in attendance, as well as the BrooklyKnight and 100 Madison Square Boys & Girls Club kids. Be careful, kids.
