What is the New York Yankees Universe Fund?
The New York Yankees and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center have joined together to support the Center's programs in pediatric patient care, research, and education by creating the New York Yankees Universe fund. Proceeds for the fund are generated by donations and the sale of Yankees Universe t-shirts, which can be purchased here.
