We really haven't heard much from Adam Weitsman since Syracuse University decided that they didn't want him bringing celebrities and sport stars courtside during the men's basketball home games.

Truth be told, Weitsman does many things without drawing attention to himself, that's just the kind of person he is. There hasn't been much made about the latest thing that he has done for his community but it's definitely worth acknowledging.

Weitsman grew up in Owego, so he was more then happy to help out the Tioga County Boys & Girls Club. On Tuesday, May 9th, he helped to break ground on an addition to the building for a new teen center.

Adam Weitsman Helps Break Ground On New Teen Center

The add-on was going to cost over $225,000, so Weitsman made a $100,000 donation as a match to funds. During the groundbreaking ceremony, Weitsman talked about how much the Boys and Girls Club meant to him and his family.

His grandfather and father were passionate about the club and wanted to keep their legacy alive. Weitsman is not alone in helping to bring the new teen club to life but his participation helped begin the process.

Before this project, the Boys & Girls Club would have up to 50 youths at night. The addition of the teen center will help with services that can be made available through the club.

The teen center is scheduled to open this fall, after the interior designs are made in the next few months. I've been to the club many times through the years when I would officiate basketball games and I can't wait to see the teen center later this year.
