Our building offers us the opportunity to operate our basketball program “in-house” and also opens the door for DG to host a wide array of events for our league, and for the community.
We would like to thank the generosity ouf our sponsors and especially our political friends; NYS State Senator Frank Padavan, Assemblywoman Ann-Margaret Carrozza and NYC Councilman Tony Avella whom assisted us with financial grants to defray a part of the costs of our extensive building renovations.
In 2003 with the help of sponsors, Tom DeVito of Cristom Construction, Michael Prete or PreTee Construction and Herb Chan & Mike McCutchen of Champion Construction Corp, our building has received much needed improvements including the:
- Restructuring of the rear wall
- Supporting of the rear foundation
- New leaders & gutters
- Restoration & Painting of gym’s interior walls & ceiling
- New concrete at both rear entrances and replacing the doors and frames
- Repointing the entire rear wall
- New bathrooms including running hot water
- New fence in rear of building
- Refurbishment of front entrance
- Restoration of building’s front exterior
If you recall in 1966 when this building was first purchased it was a weekly public bingo program that enabled the organization to pay off the $50,000 mortgage in less than six years.
Keeping with that same fundraising spirit we will be planning several events in the upcoming years to help us offset the costs of these renovations. If you have any ideas for an exciting fundraising event please contact a board member.
