Former Miami Dolphins Offensive Linemen Vernon Carey treated 30 deserving children to a mall shopping spree at Westfield Broward Mall. Joining the children in shopping were current and former athletes from local teams including the Miami Dolphins, Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, Hooters Calendar Girls and Slip-N Slide Records. The children were from organizations in Broward and Miami Dade County including Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department, Curley’s House, Adopt a Family, Miami Beach Police Athletic League, HANDY, and The Heart Gallery of Broward. Each child is paired with a celebrity shopper.
The Vernon Carey Foundation creates programs and provides support to encourage the improvement of our youth. These programs are designed to enhance educational and recreational development and economic opportunities within the community. The Vernon Carey Foundation sponsored the 3rd Annual Shopping Spree. Children each received over $300 in Gift Cards from the Vernon Carey Foundation to spend at the stores at the Westfield Broward Mall. Westfield Broward donated an additional $25 per child.
