Santa Claus, Miami Dignitaries, Board Members, Representatives from Thoma Bravo and Youth Members to Attend Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
‘Tis the season to give back! For over 50 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade has been selling Christmas trees to help bring holiday cheer into South Florida homes and to create great futures for area youth. The tradition continues with the Thoma Bravo Christmas Tree Lot at Boys& Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Hank Kline Club that will be open seven days a week, starting Monday, Nov. 20, until trees are sold out.
To kick off the 2023 holiday season, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade will host a grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, Nov. 20, at 5 p.m. Miami dignitaries, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade board members, representative from Thoma Bravo, who is sponsoring the tree lot this year, youth members and Santa Claus himself will attend to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
The Fraser fir trees are hand-selected by Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s President Alex Rodriguez-Roig in North Carolina and stand 5-feet to 14-feet tall with a starting price of $65. Poinsettias will also be available starting at $15. Shoppers will also have the opportunity to Sponsor-A-Child to help make a positive impact in the life of an area youth.
The Thoma Bravo Christmas Tree Lot will be open on Thanksgiving Day as well as Black Friday. Proceeds from tree sales and Sponsor-A-Child will fund the Clubs’ crucial programs and services at its six Clubs including its educational after school programs, tutoring and homework assistance, social skills, dance, arts and crafts, mentoring, and summer and athletic programs. These programs help children realize their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
