Reid&Fiorentino - Charities

 

At the heart of our events are two charities, Lauren's Kids and the Dade Schools Athletic Foundation (DSAF). Both charities benefit from the generosity of all that attend the Reid & Fiorentino events. See below to learn more about these two wonderful charities

 

Lauren's Kids - A Benefiting Charity

Lauren's Kids

Lauren’s Kids’ is a Florida-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization that works to prevent childhood sexual abuse through education and awareness and to help survivors heal with guidance and support. The organization was founded by Lauren Book, a child advocate, author educator, one of the 42 million survivors of child sexual abuse living in the United States today.  In the 2015-16 school year, Lauren’s Kids implemented the state’s first pre-kindergarten through grade 12 sexual abuse prevention curriculum, called Safer, Smarter Schools, in partnership with the Florida Department of Education. Additionally, they host an annual statewide awareness walk and speaking engagements across the country and the world. For more information, visit laurenskids.org.

 

DSAF - Dade Schools Athletic Foundation

Dade Schools Athletic Foundation (DSAF)


The Dade Schools Athletic Foundation is a 501(c)3 created in 1994 through the Miami Dade County School Board  to allow the private sector to support and augment the athletic programs in the Miami-Dade County Public School system. Miami-Dade schools operate their athletic programs with very few actual tax dollars with the majority of funds being raised by the principals, athletic directors and coaches. Every school has been forced to eliminate programs and severely restrict the number of students who can participate in athletics at every level.

Funds raised by the Foundation are passed on directly to Dade County public high schools as well as middle school athletic programs to provide grants for the purchase of equipment, uniforms, and training aids.  In addition, the DSAF annually provides scholarships for outstanding student-athletes.
