Inside the HEAT: Miami HEAT Charitable Fund
On this edition of Inside the HEAT, we give fans a look inside the Miami HEAT’s foundation and how it was created and who it serves. The Miami HEAT Charitable fund was established in the late 90’s with a goal to positively impact the lives of at-risk families in our South Florida community. Learn all about how the foundation began when two powerful families converged: the Arison family and the Riley family. Get insight on how a group of 4 women had a dream and made it a reality providing funds and support for many organizations in Miami for over 25 years. With a primary focus on youth programs, education and health and wellness, learn about where the money goes and who exactly it helps. Whether it’s building wings in hospitals, funding research for cancer, creating a safe space for families, aiding veterans, responding to natural disasters, feeding the underserved, or speaking out for social justice; the Miami HEAT always answers the call. The foundation has even created groundbreaking programs in Miami that are answering specific needs and setting examples for other teams to follow. Take a trip down memory lane as we take you through the two main ways the Miami HEAT Charitable Fund raises the money; the Family Festival and Gala. Discover how these events began and how they evolved over the years. HEAT fans will learn more about how they can give and be a part of this incredible foundation that gives back everything they raise.
