Shake-A-Leg Miami receives $100,000 grant

Recently the Batchelor Foundation issued a $100,000 grant to Shake-a-Leg Miami for its efforts to help special-needs and able-bodied youth go attend summer camp. Of that amount, $50,000 was a Challenge Grant, which presented the organization with an incredible opportunity to raise the necessary funds to operate its summer program.

Commissioner Marc Sarnoff was proud to kick off the group's fundraising efforts with a District 2 grant of $5,000, which was matched 100 percent by the Batchelor Foundation.

"I'm proud to support Shake-a-Leg, which represents the true spirit of inclusion and holds forth a positive vision for today's youth that they can overcome any obstacle and lead healthy, fulfilling lives," Commissioner Sarnoff said during the announcement of the District 2 grant.

Good news if that means less girls and boys selling plants and asking for donations in the street for "Shake a leg"...
