Kid's and Fins Publix Shopping Spree

This last Monday evening Dan, my sister Jenna, and myself participated in one of my favorite charity events of the year - The Kids and Fins Publix Shopping Spree. 

At the event, members of the Miami Dolphins give 100 underprivileged children from Miami-Dade and Broward County Public Schools a $100 gift certificate to shop for a Thanksgiving dinner for their loved ones.

The turn out was great! We had many of the players, cheerleaders, and military personnel on site to help the children shop and to make the evening a success.

Bill Fauerbach, Vice President of Retail Operations for Publix Supermarkets is always kind enough to help host the event. Every year his staff puts in the extra effort to make it special.

This was Dan's second year as one of the Hosts and we both really enjoy it. We hope we are as lucky to host again next year.

The little girl we shopped with was very polite. We filled up that cart with a ton of scrumptious food. We left no penny unspent on that gift card, and she even got away with throwing in a bag of Skittles at the end.
