BNI Miami-Dade Chapters Host Christmas In July Toy Drives For Miami Children's Hospital Patients

“Children are hospitalized throughout the year, not just during the holidays,” said Michael Mowatt. “It is our goal to support the patients and their family members whenever they need a smile.”

Aug. 11, 2011 - PRLog -- MIAMI – In an effort to continue the holiday spirit throughout the year, several BNI Miami-Dade chapters organized a “Christmas in July” Toy Drive to benefit patients at Miami Children’s Hospital. These toys will help commemorate major milestones in a child’s treatment at Miami Children's Hospital – from going home after a long hospital stay to completing chemotherapy.

The chapters that participated were BNI Miami Beach led by Todd Narson of the Miami Beach Family & Sports Chiropractic Center and Michelle Wolfe of Halo Branded Solutions; BNI Creators led by Bob Arnold of The Victoria Law Group and Dean Neiger of DryEco Green Cleaners; BNI Premier led by Michael Mowatt of Miami Children's Hospital Foundation; and BNI Elite Professionals led by Lyndon Todd of Ocean Collision Center and Tamar Gold of Ultimate Nutrition & Health. In all, BNI collected more than 200 toys valued at more than $2,200.

“Children are hospitalized throughout the year, not just during the holidays,” said Mowatt. “It is our goal to support the patients and their family members whenever they need a smile.”
