news 1/12The Yonkers police and fire unions donated $63,000 to Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center, Wednesday, January 11. The Yonkers Police Benevolent Association and Yonkers Fire Local 628 presented the check to the pediatric facility at its new facility at 300 Corporate Blvd. South in Yonkers.

The money was raised in October during the “Toughman” boxing competition. The popular boxing matches between Yonkers firefighters and police have raised $400,000 for local charities in the past seven years.

At Wednesday’s event, Senior Director of Development for the Pediatric Center, Brian Harrington, lead a tour of officials, including Mayor Spano and representatives from the unions, around the facility. The center is scheduled to open this Spring.

The Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center is a comprehensive health care facility focused on enriching the lives of medically fragile children, ages birth to 21.
