Each year Haslem, a devoted advocate for childhood education, combs Dade and Broward county schools to identify students who have excelled academically despite various sociodemographic factors. On Saturday, December 23rd, 2017, more than 80 deserving students who fit the qualifications of being honored, enjoyed a full day excursion, beginning with a personal meet-and-greet to congratulate the honorees. Students joined Haslem at ToysRUS in North Miami Beach where they received a backpack filled with goodies and a $200 gift card for a shopping spree. The event concluded with an afternoon lunch with Santa and games at FunDimension, Wynwood’s first family entertainment center.
Earlier this year, Haslem attended FunDimension’s grand opening where owner Joyce Frohman, presented him with a $5,000 donation to the Foundation.
