For Immediate Release
Bronx, NY – When it was announced on June 17 that New York Junior Tennis & Learning (NYJTL) will be hosting a $250,000 WTA International Series tournament at the Cary Leeds Center for Tennis & Learning in Crotona Park during the week preceding the US Open, Goldfarb Properties immediately reached out to support NYJTL’s undertaking.
“We recognize the importance of bringing world-class events to the Bronx,” said Joshua Goldfarb, Partner at Goldfarb Properties. “Our company is proud to join the NYJTL Bronx Open as an official sponsor.”
Major financial backing has been secured by NYJTL from the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association to bring world-class tennis to the Bronx. Additional supporters include the USTA Eastern Section, donors Deborah Larkin and Lawrence Leeds, and Taste of Tennis, which has designated NYJTL as a beneficiary of its summer event.
“We are thrilled to welcome Goldfarb Properties to the NYJTL team,” said Tournament Director Joe Ceriello. “We hope that Goldfarb is the first of many local Bronx businesses to associate with the NYJTL Bronx Open which will be broadcast daily nationwide on Tennis Channel.”
Goldfarb Properties entered the Bronx real estate market 40 years ago in 1979 and has expanded to more than 15 Bronx properties in its portfolio of more 6,000 residential units and commercial properties throughout the tri-state metropolitan area.
“NYJTL serves the New York City metropolitan area where we have our presence,” said Goldfarb. “We consider it an important civic duty to be committed within the communities we serve.”
Among its philanthropic efforts, Goldfarb supports the New York Restoration Project, which is focused on preserving and improving New York City parks, the New Rochelle Police Foundation, the Police Benevolent Association, the Hospital for Special Surgery, among other projects.
