ANNUAL ZO'S HOLIDAY PARTY - More Than 400 Kids in South Florida to Receive Gifts at Annual Holiday Party with Support from Community

Not all events are about self-indulgent fun. Not that there's anything wrong with self-indulgent fun - but sometimes we need to take a break and look at what might be fun for those less fortunate than us. And here is a way to do just that.

On December 7th, Alonzo Mourning Charities are hoping to make the 2009 Holidays especially memorable for children across South Florida with their annual Zo’s Holiday Party.

It’s all about the kids and this year the community has a chance to get involved in something special and meaningful this holiday season. With more than 400 children invited to attend this year’s event, a toy drive is being held to ensure that each child will receive a present.

The more than 400 kids invited to Zo’s Holiday Party range in ages from 8-18 years old and are selected from partner organizations. The Holiday Party festivities will include a talent show, holiday cookie decorating, face painting, seasonal music, dancing, and a traditional holiday dinner. A goal of Alonzo Mourning Charities’ is that each child will receive their own special gift at the party with the help of local supporters.

The public is encouraged and invited to get involved and spread some holiday cheer this year in a number of ways:

Donate a new, unwrapped toy and deliver or mail it to the Alonzo Mourning Charities office at 2901 Florida Avenue, Suite 806, Coconut Grove, FL 33133;

Purchase a gift online from the Alonzo Mourning Charities wish list registry in-store or online at Toys ‘R’ Us or Target Stores.

Submit a monetary donation via Paypal; or mail check/drop off cash to the Alonzo Mourning Charities office above.

To get involved or for more information, please contact Nile Patrick, Community Relations Coordinator, at (305) 476-0095 x111 or npatrick@amcharities.org.
