Yesterday was a sweet day in the Middle River Terrace Park in Fort Lauderdale. A group of neighborhoods and businesses called the 13th Street Alliance, pulled off a very special event.

     About 200 people met and honored some special little kids….
    
     The 64 honored kids had been chosen by their schools for doing very well in school, despite tough or challenging home lives….

                   Here’s the event in pictorial form

           First there was chow 

                         

    Everyone checked out the cool Fire Truck!

            


          The music played on!

           


           Santa and the gifts arrived!

                   


           A dashing Candy Cane Hunt before the ceremony!


            


     Then the real business got underway. The kids that the schools picked, got to do their own picking, a toy of their choosing! Their number was in a hat, and when it was called, they got to work! 

     This little girl was having a hard time…Too many choices!

                        

           She settled on Barbie!


                      


     This little cutey had fun!

               


     This honoree needed carrying help with this cool train set!


               

    And this kid just smiled ear to ear !
