As a part of giving back to the community, Vision’s goal is to help and serve non-profits around South Florida.
Vision is creating brand awareness along with a marketing campaign for Prestige Club – a non-profit organization that helps children and families in need.
Raising a child with autism, cancer, a debilitating or terminal disease is difficult for caregivers and family as well as the child. Between hospitals, special schools, and home care, the families are experiencing a rough time: parents have to dedicate more time, and siblings may feel deprived while attention is given to the child in need of care.
One of the fantastic programs Prestige has put together is “Prestige Club Adventures.” In this monthly program, a full day of activity is planned for the families: a visit to a museum, pizza day, a day in the park, and much more.
On Sunday, July 22nd, 2017 we filmed their highlight event – Holiday in July. The event takes kids and families to a local hockey rink to give them a taste of Christmas in the middle of summer. The kids and their families were so excited for a few good hours before the event started. With many of the families participating in the program for years, many showed up bundled up in warm clothing to stave off the freezing cold of the ice.
The event started with lacing up the skates and heading to the ice. Some skated on their own, while others from The Ice Den helped give support to those who needed a little boost. And for others – there was a nice surprise. Santa Claus took them on a sleigh ride. The smiles on the children’s faces said it all. But if that’s not enough, the Panther’s mascot kept entertaining them as well.
Followed by hot chocolate and dinner, the families were given – one by one – a family gift bag from Santa and his Elf.
The team of Prestige Club volunteers and donors are a family with so much love and heartwarming attention to detail.
We’re so honored for the opportunity to be a part of the team that really brings a change to the world – one smile at a time. In this crazy world of work and money, these are precious moments where anyone can become a giver.
