The Gift of Giving

     Today starts the Christmas season.

     Over the next month or so, all of us will be out buying gifts!


     Here’s a chance to do something really good. Would you be willing to buy an additional gift, when you’re at the mall, online, or at the Flea Market,  for our Fort Lauderdale kids that really earned ’em ( and might not get them? )

                                    Here’s the deal

     The 13th Street Alliance, a group of multiple neighborhoods and businesses just north of Sunrise Boulevard,  has teamed up with the famous Christmas Palace ( at 800 NE 13th Street), to bring some joy to deserving kids.


                                      the wonderful Christmas Palace


     The group has been meeting with area elementary and middle school officials to collect the names of kids who are trying real hard in school but come from modest homes.

                                           Here’s exactly what to do to participate

       Buy ….a really cool gift for a boy or girl, aged 5 -years old to 14 -years old. Put a note on the gift saying what age kid you think should get it …… for example…..

                    [  boy – 8-10 years old – or – girl – 5 years old  ]

     ….  (also put on your e-mail address on the gift if you want, so we can send you an invitation for the Christmas party where we will be giving the gifts out)…..

     Take …. the gift (unwrapped), to the Christmas Palace, at 800 NE 13th Street, – Monday thru Saturday – 10 am until 9 pm, or Sunday from 11 am until 6 pm…. from now until December 22nd……

    Then …..we will be having the super fun party on December 23, from 4pm until 6 pm, in Middle River Terrace Park (1329 N. Dixie Highway),


    …….where Santa will be giving out the presents to the kids, munching holiday fare, singing Christmas Carols ….etc…etc….etc….

     Can we count on you?   …….
