MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Over 1,200 homeless people will get the opportunity to blow out their candles on Wednesday at birthday parties held around South Florida.
The Miami Rescue Mission and the Broward Outreach Center will host big birthday bashes in Miami, Hollywood and Pompano Beach where party-goers will be able to enjoy cupcakes and ice cream while they listen to live music.
Guests will also leave with a special birthday card and a free meal from Chick-Fil-A.
Director of Development Marilyn Brummitt said that the parties will be a small gesture for those who aren’t able to celebrate their birthday each year and she hopes that it will let the homeless know that they are not forgotten.
