Yankee Game Fundraiser

The Yankees have generously made a contribution of two 80-person suites, along with 500 stadium tickets, to raise money in support of the Bronx Healthcare Learning Collaborative. The Collaborative works to increase the number of bilingual Spanish/English-speaking healthcare professionals working in the Bronx.

We are excited to announce that Judy Reyes, a Dominican-American actress born in the Bronx—best known for her role as Carla in the iconic television show “Scrubs,” as Zoila on Lifetime’s program “Devious Maids” and as Quiet Ann on the hit TNT series “Claws”—will be making a special guest appearance in support of the BHLC efforts to improve the lives of the Latinx community in the Bronx.

Bio

Judy Reyes is a Dominican-American actress born in the Bronx. Best known for her role as “Carla” in the iconic television show Scrubs and the role of “Zoila” on Lifetime’s hit show Devious Maids. Judy currently stars as “Quiet Ann” on the hit TNT series Claws. Recurring roles include: “Dina” on the CW’s Jane the Virgin, “Ramona” on Netflix’s One Day at a Time, “Deb” on the TBS series Search Party, ‘Irene Vega’ on Bravo’s Dirty John, “Eva” on HBO’s Succession, and “Lala” on FX’s Better Things.

Reyes has worked extensively in television, theater and film for the last 20 years and remains a founding member of NYC’s Labyrinth Theater Company.

Reyes is thrilled to be expanding her role in Hollywood by executive-producing an animated video series entitled LaGolda. Currently distributed through Discovery Education Worldwide, LaGolda tells the story of an eight-year-old Latina orphan who uses soccer to bring awareness to multiple social and environmental issues with the goal of engaging kids to take action and give back to their communities. Inspired by the animation, Reyes and its creator, husband, George Valencia, started the Sound of Gol Foundation, whose mission is to build strong leaders for tomorrow through the game of soccer.
