One hundred percent of proceeds from the trees and wreaths sales will benefit Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, which serves 10,000 boys and girls in Miami-DadeCounty with positive programs year-round
The tree lot is open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. seven days a week from Nov. 19 to Dec. 15 (or until trees are sold out).
