MassMutual Center Turns a Negative into a Positive

The MassMutual Center will be presenting the Springfield Boys and Girls Club and the Springfield YMCA with a $1,500 donation from the profit of selling Springfield Armor Basketball Chairs.

The MassMutual Center will be presenting the Springfield Boys and Girls Club and the Springfield YMCA with a $1,500 donation. The MassMutual Center decided to turn the unfortunate event of the Springfield Armor Basketball Team relocating and permanently leaving the building into a positive impact on the community. Diligent efforts were made to sell the Armor logo chairs that were used for the team bench and VIP fan seats, in order to raise funds for the community. Fans, local investors, and medical staff who assisted with the team’s medical needs purchased the chairs.

The Executive Director of the Springfield Boys and Girls Club (Sarah Tsitso) as well as the Executive Director of Springfield YMCA (Kirk Smith) accepted the donation on July 22 at a check presentation in the MassMutual Center Exhibition Hall.
