Sense Beach House Gives Back This Holiday Season

ayuda-toy-driveThis holiday season, Santa isn’t the only one making spirits bright. Sense Beach House, a boutique luxury hotel in South Beach, is embracing the Christmas spirit with an event to benefit AYUDA (Adults and Youth with Unmet Needs Deserve Attention).

AYUDA is a community-based non-profit organization in Miami Beach that provides programs to prevent abuse and neglect. Since its establishment in 1977, AYUDA has served more than 145,000 children, adolescents, adults and elderly in South Florida.

The chic 18-room boutique hotel is partnering with the well-known neighborhood charity for a toy drive on December 17th. Hotel guests and locals alike are invited to bring an unwrapped toy to the hotel at any time that day. All toys will be delivered personally to neighborhood families in need by AYUDA and the Sense Beach House team, including owner Ciro Campagnoli.

“Sense Beach House and The Local House are uniquely tied to the locals neighborhood here in South Beach and feel a kinship with those in this neighborhood that we call home,” Ciro Campagnoli said. “Charity has always been a natural part of my life and my hope is that partnering with AYUDA will help to bring a festive holiday season to those in the community who need it most.”
 
The toys will be presented to children and families at AYUDA’s Happy Kids Early Childhood Center on December 19th as part of a larger holiday celebration attended by Santa himself. Families will kick off the special afternoon with a holiday show at Barton Carlyle Theater followed by a pizza party and photo opportunity with Santa Claus.
