Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez hosted and funded his 7th annual holiday party at Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Hank Kline Club for 270 children. During the event, the children enjoyed a pizza party, sweet treats, karaoke and inflatables. As a child, A-Rod attended the Hank Kline Club, where he participated in its baseball program. He flourished at the Club, remaining a member until the day he was drafted out of high school as the first overall selection in the 1993 MLB Draft by the Seattle Mariners. A-Rod has been a supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade since he signed his first professional baseball contract in 1993.
