Fins and Kids Holiday Toy Event

     Last Tuesday, the Dolphins held the annual Fins and Kids Holiday Toy Event. Dan and I have participated every year as it is a lively event filled with lots of holiday spirit. This year over 160 kids from four local elementary schools as well as the Alternative Family Care Center, Cooperative Feeding Program, Urban League of Miami, Project Medishare and ChildNet were gifted with items off of their wish lists. Boy did that generate some big smiles! Children walked away with new bicycles, I-Pod Touches, dolls, gift cards to clothing stores, and many other items that they wishes for.
     Also on site was a huge bouncy house for the children to jump in, our mascot T.D. to play with, and players, players wives, and cheerleaders to talk to and hand out gifts. A dance contest was held, and the winners took home GREAT prizes! One child even won a new I-Pad!
     Below are some pictures from the event that I found over at the Miami Dolphins official website. To see more pictures and read more about the event visit their website by clicking HERE.
