We hope this Special Edition of #ThankfulThursday honoring the Give Miami Day movement–finds you well.
Last year, our friends at The Miami Foundation’s Give Miami Day raised $10.1 million in support of 700 local charities.
Today the movement is in full swing.
Marile, the kids and our parents are once again donating and asking you–our friends, clients and colleagues–to help our community and those in need.
Last night, as we gathered to celebrate our 30 years of service and community involvement — we thanked our numerous distinguished guests for the blessings of their friendship, asked them to reflect on their own blessings and join us in gratitude on this Give Miami Day by supporting local charities.
In honor of the our NEXT 30 years of service–our Lopez family will be making a special donation to 30 charities.
We pray you will join us!
