HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - Some young South Florida standouts got the all-star treatment in Hollywood, Sunday.
The Third Annual Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital All-Stars took over Dave & Buster’s at Oakwood Plaza. The event aimed to honor children between the ages of 6 and 18 who contributed community service while demonstrating positivity and leadership.
Those values were reinforced by the evening’s special guest speakers: former Miami Dolphins player Channing Crowder and 7Sports reporter Donovan Campbell.
“Hearing a kid come up and say, ‘I met you 10 years ago,’ I must have done something for you,” said Crowder. “I don’t need anything in return. I just want to better the community where I’m going to live the remainder of my life and my children are growing up in.”
“You really feel like you’re doing a great thing, and it really helps your morale,” said honoree Joseph Kosar. “You’re doing a good thing. You’re on the right track to give back, to help people around you. It’s a good feeling.”
Those recognized today were nominated by the adults in their community.
