After an extraordinary baseball career, A-Rod now serves as a television baseball analyst for Fox Sports and ESPN and is a longtime board member for Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade and also for Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
“We are incredibly humbled by the continuous support from A-Rod, A-Rod Corp. and its family of companies, for generously hosting this holiday event and donating gifts to our youth members,” Alex Rodriguez-Roig says, president of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. “Our youth members will not only cherish their new toys but the memories of meeting A-Rod and enjoying the holiday party for years to come.”
The event was sponsored by A-Rod Corp. and its family of companies, including Florida Physicians PSN, Metro Fund and Nelson Lopez. For more information or to donate to Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, please visit www.bgcmia.org.
