MLB in Belle Glade for the Boys and Girls Club
On July 6, Major League Baseball unveiled its refurbishment of the Palm Beach County Boys & Girls Club Teen Center of Belle Glade. The refurbishment includes upgrades to the dance studio, renovations to the kitchen and game rooms, upgrades to the Technology Center, and new furniture.
Major League Baseball was represented by Tom Brasuell, MLB's VP of Community Affairs; Ryan Bertschman, Florida Marlins Vice President; and Antonio Alfenseca, the retired Marlins pitcher who played on the 2007 World Series-winning team. Aide Lisa Wilson represented Vice Mayor McKinlay at the ceremony.
During the event, Jaene Miranda, President & CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, presented a $5,000 scholarship to Je’Cynthia Nonar, a recent graduate of Glades Central Community High School. Je’Cynthia spoke about how much the Teen Center and renovation meant to her.
We are grateful to MLB for their wonderful contributions to the Glades!
