Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade hosted a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Hank Kline Club tree lot, 2805 SW 32 Ave., on Nov. 25 to kick-off the holiday season.
Miami dignitaries, City of Miami-Dade Chief of Police Jorge Colina, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade board members and representatives as well as Santa Claus attended to celebrate a holly jolly holiday season.
For more than 38 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade has been selling Christmas trees and wreaths to help bring holiday cheer into South Florida homes. The trees, gorgeous Fraser firs, hand-selected in North Carolina by Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s president Alex Rodriguez-Roig, stand 5 to 14 feet tall with a starting price of $55. Plain and hand-decorated wreaths also are available starting at $35.
Proceeds benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s many positive programs — including after school, homework assistance, computer training, social skills, dance, arts and crafts, professional mentoring, and summer and athletic programs — for area children who need them the most.
