Boys & Girls Club of Columbus
Lindy Infante discovered his love for sports at the Boys & Girls Club in Miami, Florida at the age of 14. When the Foundation began to look for partners to align with it was only natural to look at the Boys & Girls Club. The Lindy Infante Foundation’s gift to the Boys & Girls Club of Columbus goes to support the creation and operation of organized sports leagues for the Clubs.
The Lindy Infante Foundation, whose mission is to provide athletic scholarships to children in need, granted the Boys & Girls Club of Columbus $225,000 to establish the first Lindy Infante Foundation Athletic Leagues. This transformational gift will provide club members in grades 3-6 the opportunity to participate in both intramural and high level competitive sports.
“Offering our members an opportunity to be trained and participate in competitive sports will enhance their overall club experience and increase the likelihood that they will stay engaged in the Club through their middle and high school years”, says Rebecca Asmo, CEO, Boys & Girls Club of Columbus.
The Lindy Infante Foundation is equally excited about the partnership. “The relationship that we are building with Boys & Girls Club of Columbus is providing us with the foundation to begin accomplishing our goal and the fact that Lindy began his journey with the same organization has led us to believe this partnership is meant to be” said Brad Infante.Back
