A Sports Celebrity Booking Agency

call to book a sports celebrity 1.888.246.7141

New York Yankees‘ first baseman Mark Teixeira is not just a four-time Golden Glove Winner or World Series Champion, he is a generous man who gives back to his community by helping to provide inner-city youth with opportunities to play, learn and grow.

The 2009 American League Home Run Champion said he was inspired to get involved with Harlem RBI, an organization that has been revitalizing the community and impacting youth of all ages for more than 20 years, because of some of his teammates and other famed athletes’ charitable contributions. Some of those mentioned include Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps who used his $1 million bonus that he earned from Speedo to work with various charitable programs to promote water safety and encourage youth swimming, and his teammate relief pitcher David Robertson’s involvement in the Special Olympics.

Teixeira said that being involved with an organization that does such important, deeply influential work for the community is a constant reminder of why he first fell in love with baseball; for the camaraderie and inspiration only a team can provide. Harlem RBI uses the power of teams to coach, teach and inspire youth to recognize their potential and realize their dreams — just as baseball helped him to realize his dreams.

On September 24 at the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, New York, the 16th Annual Golf Outing will be held to raises funds for these much needed Harlem RBI programs. Following a shot gun start at noon, there will be a hole-in-one contest as well as a cocktail hour, buffet dinner and awards ceremony.

Having a revered athlete like Teixeira aligned with almost any type of organization serves to increase fundraising dollars as well as to get the word out to the public and accomplish goals that may have seemed impossible before.
