’Tis the season of giving, so Miami’s beloved NBA franchise could not pass up the opportunity to give back to its community.

Last week, Miami Heat partnered with California-based entertainment company Ticketmaster to announce a generous donation in support of Miami Connected’s ongoing effort to close the digital divide.

The announcement was followed by a holiday event at the Belafonte TACOLCY Center featuring an ice cream party and gifts for children who participate in the center’s after-school program.

Miami Connected, an initiative led by The Miami Foundation and Achieve Miami, aims to increase access to at-home broadband internet, digital skills training and career pathways in tech for Miami-Dade County residents, free of charge. Leaders behind the initiative hope to reach 90,000 residents with a $2.2 million fundraising goal.
