SEFANN's annual Christmas Party Luncheon and Toy Drive was Saturday December 9th at Bahama Breeze Restaurant in Kendall. SEFANN members got together for a nice luncheon and enjoyed catching up with friends at this annual gathering. 

The toys and items we collected were delivered to Kristi House Miami on December 14 by SEFANN Community leader Derek, (pictured above).

Kristi House liaison Ashley received our gifts and contributions and thanked all of our SEFANN members for their support.

The Kristi House mission is to treat, and prevent trauma, sexual abuse and trafficking of children.  You can learn more at about the Kristi House mission and their work to provide support and many services to vulnerable kids in south Florida. Go to their website at
