This year marked the 8th Annual Cool Gear for the School Year. This year, like the past, the Jason Taylor Foundation hosted this fine event for nearly 60 children in need. Each carefully selected child was paired up with a celebrity to shop for school clothes with a $300 Old Navy gift card.
In attendance were many former and current Miami Dolphin Players, a few Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders, a couple Police Women of Broward County, an MMA competitor and professional boxer, Miami Heat Players, Miami Heat Dancers and many more.
With a DJ on site, and snacks and drinks, the children walked away having had fun, and also very excited to go show off their new clothes, shoes, and backpacks at school.

Yup, I think I dug this shirt more than she. Haha. She didn't buy it.
She did like this one though!
