Gulfstream Park Holds Fourth of July Celebration and Food Drive

Independence Day is one of America's most beloved days. It's a time where friends and families gather to bask in the sunlight, barbeque, drink beer and lemonade, then watch the night sky light up with fireworks as a tribute to our great nation.

What better way to pay tribute to our country than by giving back a little?

That's why we love the fact that, along with one heck of a great party, Gulfstream Park is holding a July 4th food drive benefiting Feeding South Florida, a not-for-profit organization that provides food and other grocery items to the community to fight hunger and poverty through a local network of nearly 600 other not-for-profit organizations.


Head over to Gulfstream Park today, starting at 4 p.m. for their July

4th Family Celebration featuring a KidzZone, live music, food, fun, and

more. Stay for the fireworks, which start at 9 p.m.

While you're

there, bring some non-perishable foods to donate like peanut better,

cereal, tuna, rice, canned goods, etc. Donations will at the north and

south valet areas. Not only are you doing something very good for

members of our community in need, but each person donating food will be

entered into a drawing to win $500. The drawing will take place directly

after the fireworks.

Helping neighbors while enjoying the day

with friends and family. Sounds like a fantastic way to celebrate our

nation's birthday.
