12-Hour Give Miami Day Livestream

November 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pm


About the Event

Starting at 9am and ending at 9pm, we will be broadcasting LIVE from the CIC in Miami for a 12-hour livestream.

Tune in throughout the day as we raise awareness for the barriers faced by justice-involved people and raise funds to help provide FREE legal services throughout Miami-Dade County. Our livestream will include guest speakers, Miami trivia, special cocktails by the Mexican Mixologist, a smoked pork Cuban sandwich recipe by BaconCartel’s Chef Jeffrey Schlissel, and plenty of surprises! It is sure to be a day of fun, education, and philanthropy as we try to reach our fundraising goal of $60k.

Join the livestream by visiting any of our Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube or on our homepage at FLJC.org starting at 9am. Please share this link with your friends, family, and coworkers as we make this Give Miami Day our most successful one yet.

We encourage you to provide a contribution of any size as we try to make a meaningful change in our community. Your giving will go to expanding FLJC’s legal services and providing holistic care to more people in Miami.
