T. BOONE PICKENS DONATES $5M TO DOWNTOWN YMCA


T. Boone Pickens gave $5M to the Downtown YMCA to be used to fund a complete renovation to the facade of the building as well as improvements to the fitness programs at the YMCA. The gift was commemorated with the unveiling of the new building and the new name: the T. Boone Pickens YMCA. The donation by the T. Boone Pickens Foundation comes from funds that Boone Pickens personally donated to his Foundation in 2007. This donation reflects Pickens' dedication to corporate fitness.
