“This community has experienced the effects of hurricanes and know first hand what it takes to recover and get back to normal. No community can do it alone. South Florida has received help and supports from throughout the nation in the past following natural disasters. The Youth Fair has teamed with DJ Nacho Productions in this effort, so the South Florida community can once again show its support and generosity for the victims of Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas. Relief collection efforts are a first step in the assistance. As we learn more about the needs of the effected areas, we will communicate with the South Florida community on additional relief efforts,” stated Eddie Cora, President, The Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition.
“When I originally came up with the concept of creating an effort to assist those affected by the recent hurricane, the first choice was The Fair. They are a staple in our community, serving South Florida for more than 67 years. Our goal is to provide supplies to those that need help, especially those dealing with destruction and severe floods,” said Felix Casado, President of DJ Nacho Productions.
Sponsors of this effort also include Bristol PR & Communications and Push Hard CPR. For more information, to volunteer or donate, please call Felix Casado at 954-882-2413.
