Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade hosted its sixth annual â€œWild About Kidsâ€ black-tie optional gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Brickell. Gala proceeds benefited Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade and its many positive programs for 10,000 area children who need them the most. The Gala was voted one of BizBashâ€™s Top 100 Events of 2011. BizBash selects annual gatherings based on their impact on their respective industries and communities (and on the city) while innovating to stay on top. Danell Leyva, who won the bronze medal at the London 2012 Summer Olympics for menâ€™s gymnastics, was honored at the event with Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dadeâ€™s Hometown Hero Award.
