NJ contractor pitches in to CC Sabathia’s nonprofit

December 9, 2013 -  By

Westwood, N.J.-based Lawns by Yorkshire CEO Steven Jomides and his wife Andrea chipped into the New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia and his wife Amber’s nonprofit organization PitCCh In Foundation, which supports academic and athletic programs in the New York City tri-state area in an effort to raise self-esteems of inner-city youth.

The Jomides and Sabathia families’ first signature event together was the third annual CC Challenge, held in New York City’s Central Park on Nov. 9. The Sabathias led 30 sponsored teams of contestants on a scavenger hunt. At the finish line was the CC Cup to benefit the PitCCh In Foundation.

“CC and Amber are a truly inspirational couple—humble, grounded and enthusiastic—who are already making a positive difference in the world with the gifts they’ve been given,” Steven Jomides said. “I am honored to be a part of the PitCCh In Foundation team encouraging inner-city kids to push forward in their lives and strive for their goals. Today more than ever, these kids need hope…and PitCCh In continues to provide the ultimate recipe for that. I can’t think of a better foundation to lend my support and they happen to be right in my backyard.”

CC Sabathia, a six-time All-Star Cy Young Award-winning pitcher and World Series champion, works year-round with his wife to provide urban youth with signature programs, including All-Star baseball clinics, back to school backpack and school supplies giveaways in the Bronx, holiday activities as well as youth athletic fields and community center renovations.

Recognizing Lawns by Yorkshire as a supporter of the PitCCh In Foundation, CC Sabathia said he looks forward to building a long-lasting relationship with the company.

“Amber and I are extremely pleased that Lawns by Yorkshire teamed with us as a major sponsor of the CC Challenge to provide hope and promise to the myriad of the inner city youth we serve from coast to coast,” he said.
