Fins Donate At Least $500k To Sandy Relief Efforts

DAVIE (CBSMiami) – As the relief efforts in New York and New Jersey continue in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the Miami Dolphins are stepping up in a big way with a donation of at least $500,000 to help the area recover.

The Dolphins announced Wednesday the team would donate $500,000 to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York to support Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

The Dolphins also said they would donate all net proceeds from the sale of game tickets sold between 9 a.m. Thursday through kickoff to the American Red Cross to help relief efforts in the devastated areas.

“The devastation of Hurricane Sandy knows no boundaries, and I know I speak for the Dolphins and Related in expressing our dedication to help those in need during this difficult time,” said Ross. “We saw first-hand the damage the storm caused to our community, and with the close ties South Florida has with the Northeast, the Dolphins certainly want to support those families who are dealing with Sandy’s aftermath.”

The Dolphins take on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium at 1 p.m.
