Kevin Garcia Foundation's party and toy drive

Kevin Garcia
Monty’s Coconut Grove is hosting Kevin Garcia Foundation’s 9th Annual Christmas Party and Toy Drive on Saturday, December 16 at 7 pm. Admission is free for those who bring one new unwrapped toy to the Hawaiian-inspired holiday party. 

Guests can also make $20 (per guest) donation at the door for admission. All donations benefit children with life-threatening medical conditions and help in establishing the Kevin Garcia Scholarship. Enjoy a night of delicious food, tropical drinks and all things Hawaiian. 

Kevin gave his all to help family, friends, and strangers. Whether he helped with hurricane preparations, comforting someone mourning a painful loss, spreading laughter through his stories, or even helping a little boy make sandcastles, Kevin truly cared about every person he met. He was humble, kind, understanding, generous and loving, all the things we strive to be.

Kevin was 17 years old when he passed away on December 9, 2008. Rather than receiving flowers at his funeral, we collected toys as a truer commemoration of his spirit. Since that initial toy drive, we have expanded our reach by hosting annual toy drives, sponsoring children with life-threatening medical conditions, and establishing the Kevin Garcia Scholarship. The truest testament to Kevin’s legendary love is the foundation’s continued support by those that knew him and those who have come to learn who he was.
