On Monday, December 6th, brokers, residents and children of all ages turned out at 515 East 72nd Street, the Upper East Side’s signature luxury condominium, to meet New York Yankee All-Star Centerfielder, Curtis Granderson, for a special event in celebration of the 515 East 72nd Home Run Charity Campaign.
Beginning August 1, 2010, 515 East 72nd Street pledged to donate $1,000 for every home run Granderson hit, with proceeds going to his charity, The Grand Kids Foundation, which targets educational initiatives. The campaign raised $15,000 for the charity, which was presented to Curtis by the 515 East 72nd Street team at a check presentation ceremony.
Attendees of the event received a photo and signed autograph with the star athlete while touring the beautifully modeled Tower Residences and snacking on an array of ballpark favorites.
Over the last eight months, 515 East 72nd Street has seen an incredible amount of traffic. In the first week of December alone, the building closed on $8 million worth of transactions. Additionally in 2010, the building unveiled its 20,000-square-foot private park, offering residents a serene oasis right in their backyard, as well as its luxurious Tower Residences.
