After a quick google I tried this link instead: http://www.burbankymca.org/

Assuming that's the correct link (your menu path seems to line up...) I suggest the attached CSS snippet. Instead of relying on line-height to create the spacing between elements I suggest using padding, a little line-height was needed for the menu-item in question though.
div#menu ul ul a span {
    display: block;
    font-size: 11px;
    line-height: 15px;
    padding: 5px 15px 7px;
}
