Patrick Carroll, one of Miami’s most prominent real estate investors with over 30,000 properties in his portfolio, conducted a charitable donation event locally on Aug. 31.
The self-made billionaire gave away $100,000 worth of this season’s most sought-after sneakers to underprivileged kids. Carroll commissioned famed sneaker aficionado, Ben Kickz, aka the “Sneaker Don,” to bring a Brinks truck filled with 600 pairs of high-end sneakers to distribute to members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, a charity in which Carroll serves on the board.
Carroll’s celebrity friends Phaedra Parks, NFL Miami Dolphins Bryant McKinnie, Below Deck’s Captain Lee, Dean Muhtadi WWE’s MoJo Rawlings, and others were in attendance to help.
The event took place at the Hank Kline Club, 2805 SW 32 Ave.
Carroll’s passion for this project was due to similar childhood circumstances. Growing up in Florida, Carroll relied on The Boys & Girls Clubs and their facilities to play basketball.
“Knowing firsthand how aspirational having the right pair of sneakers can be to a kid in need, I couldn’t wait to see the looks in these kid’s faces when we pulled up in that truck,” Carroll said.
