Dolphins Host Shopping Spree At Dick's Sporting Goods

Posted Dec 20, 2013

The students from HANDY in Broward and Camillus House in Miami each received their gift card and were paired with their shopping partner.

Continuing to spread holiday cheer this holiday season, the Miami Dolphins took 20 teenagers holiday shopping at Dick’s Sporting Goods.

The Miami Dolphins Foundation, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Jeff Peck collectively purchased a $300 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods for each student. The students from HANDY in Broward and Camillus House in Miami each received their gift card and were paired with their shopping partner.

Once paired with a Miami Dolphins player, cheerleader, or member of the Miami Dolphins Women’s Organization the students took off through the isles! The Dolphins shopping partners helped each student make decisions on what to get, gave great gift advice, and really enjoyed helping to make the holidays better for the students.

“I come to this one every year… its one of my favorite events, this and the toy give away,” said wide receiver Brian Hartline. “It’s great this time in the season to (be able) to do something like this. These kids, they don’t always get the opportunity to have this much fun in a store, and we are all having a lot of fun doing it.” Hartline concluded.

With carts full of goodies from fishing polls and workout gear, to clothes and sneakers, the groups headed to the check out line to put their gift certificates to use. The day was a success as the student’s went home with bags full of gifts for the holidays, and memories to last forever.
