Baseball's Mike Lowell hosts Christmas party

Miami’s own baseball star Mike Lowell, former Florida Marlins and Boston Red Sox player and MVP of the 2007 World Series, hosted a special holiday party for 150 kids at Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Hank Kline Facility last week. 

For the fourth consecutive year, Mike Lowell provided each child of the Club with a bag full of toys. He also read Christmas stories to the kids, while Santa Claus joined in the festivities. The children enjoyed bounce houses, face-painting by elves, cotton candy, an indoor slide, food courtesy of McDonald’s and music.
