Former Miami Dolphins Offensive Linemen Vernon Carey treated 30 deserving children to a Sneaker Shopping spree at Dick’s Sporting Goods in Aventura on Thursday, August 16th. Joining the kids in shopping was his wife LaTavia, sons Vernon Jr. and Jaylen, Retired NFL Linebacker Stephen Tulloch, Hooters Girls and Royal Pig Pub employees. The children were from Curley’s House in Liberty City. Hooters donated lunch for the children. Additional donors include Royal Pig Pub.
Each child had over $200 to spend on shoes. “My family and I enjoyed being able to help the children get ready for the new school year. I grew up in Liberty City, in the area where Curley’s House is located so being able to help the children means a lot to me,” said Vernon Carey, Founder of the Vernon Carey Foundation.
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.
