My Hat-Tip to Lisa Mendelson & Jimmy Choo, Champions of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade


🌴Hello, my future Miamians!🌴

There’s an exciting event on the horizon in my hometown, and I’m thrilled to spread the word. Lisa Mendelson, a longtime supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, joins forces with the legendary clothing designer Jimmy Choo. They’re hosting a fabulous sip and shop event on Sept. 28, from 5:30–7:30 p.m. at the Shops at Merrick Park. Not only will guests get an exclusive look at Jimmy Choo’s Autumn 2023 collection, but they’ll also enjoy some delightful bubbles and wine.

But here’s the best part: shopping isn’t just about indulging in luxury. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will directly support the Kendall Boys & Girls Club of Miami-Dade. This means funds will go towards their essential programs and services, from educational after-school activities, tutoring, and computer training to dance, arts and crafts, mentoring, and even summer and athletic programs. These initiatives are pivotal in helping our young Miamians become productive, caring, and responsible citizens.

As a Realtor and an autism dad, I’ve always championed the power of community. Miami is more than its pristine white sand beaches or the bohemian dynamism of Coconut Grove. It’s about the heartbeats of its people, their stories, and the collective effort to uplift one another. When philanthropists like Lisa and iconic designers like Jimmy Choo rally behind causes like the Boys & Girls Clubs, it’s a testament to Miami’s unwavering commitment to its youth.

For families, especially those with autistic members, considering moving to Miami, these events aren’t just feel-good stories. They’re a reflection of a community that genuinely cares. It’s where local champions and global icons unite for a shared cause. It’s about knowing you’re joining a family that cherishes every member of Miami.

A bit about the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade: This organization has been a cornerstone in our community since 1946. From its humble beginnings as a single site for boys, it has blossomed into 6 Clubs serving thousands of boys and girls throughout the year. Their goal is simple: to ensure our youth have the resources to succeed and partake in the American Dream.

So, if Miami is on your radar as a potential new home, know this: my hometown is more than its skyline. It’s a place where community matters, every individual counts, and the spirit of togetherness is always in style.

Stay sunny, Miami! ☀️🌊
