Miami’s own baseball star Mike Lowell, former Florida Marlins and Boston Red Sox player as well as MVP of the 2007 World Series, recently hosted a special holiday party for 150 kids at Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Hank Kline Facility.

For the fourth consecutive year, Lowell provided each child of the club with a bag full of toys. He also read Christmas stories to the kids, while Santa Claus joined in the festivities.

The children enjoyed bounce houses, face-painting by elves, cotton candy, an indoor slide, food courtesy of McDonald’s and music.

For the first year, Nestlé La Lechera co-sponsored the event, helping bring smiles to the children of the community, and offering the first-ever flan-making contest, where eight families competed for a chance to win cash gift card prizes.

“With the support from the Lowell family we were able to provide kids from the club gifts this holiday season,” said Alex Rodriguez-Roig, executive director of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. “Our annual holiday party continues to be huge success thanks to their support.”
