Michael Fux Foundation Hosts Celebrity-Filled Holiday Party at the Miami Children's Hospital.
As one of the most heartfelt organizations Positive Beverage has had the opportunity to assist, The Michael Fux Foundation spreads positivity while touching the lives of over 800 children and families this past holiday season.
The annual event at Miami Children's Hospital for young patients and their families has provided a safe and festive environment for the last nine years where The Foundation grants children their greatest holiday wishes. As the young children are all patients undergoing treatment for serious illnesses with most unable to spend the holidays at home, special guests NBA All-Star Alonzo Mourning, the 2013 Indy Light Champion and racing phenomenon Sage Karam and record artist Austin Mahone joined countless volunteers to make the event an incredible success.
"This is something I love doing and there's nothing like giving a child a gift, and getting a smile and hug in return," says Foundation Founder Michael Fux. After witnessing first hand the joy Michael Fux has brought to so many children and their families, having Positive Beverage lend a hand became a must and will continue well into the future.
