NEW YORK, Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Town Sports International Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLUB), owner and operator of NYSC, BSC, WSC and PSC, today announced the donation of $25,000 to support the efforts of Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.
