This year Gia wanted to come up with a creative way to give back…… details soon!!
Volunteer Opportunities that Gia has participated in:
Gia was invited to dance into the holidays with the Mayor of Dade County, Carlos Gimenez…. Thanks to DJ Irie who was hosting the event.
The 2014 Holiday Drive benefits the Irie Foundation and the University of Miami Child Protective Team. During the Holiday Season we all stop to reflect and give thanks for our blessings. By taking the time to share and bring joy and happiness to children in our community, we come together to make a difference<3

Gia’s very first Volunteer Opportunity came when she participated in The Fairchild Challenge at Springview Elementary. She had to wake-up early on a Saturday morning to team up with all of the volunteers and learn what it is like to work as a TEAM.
The challenge was to create a School Garden to beautify her school for all of the students and faculty. It was an all day event, where we had to pull out weeds, and plant new flowers and lay down mulch and rocks to make the garden a beautiful addition to the school. Gia scraped her knee, but had a lot of fun and most of all, it felt good to add a little TLC at the school!! – Springview Elementary, Miami Springs, FL.
Gia got to share her passion for golf and give back to the kids in Miami, by volunteering at the IRIE Foundation Youth Golf Clinic. This day was to help support at Risk Youth in our community, by creating after-school programs for the children to be able to participate in. Golf is one of those activities, and Gia had so much fun teaching kids how to Putt.
We all got a special surprise visitor when Academy Award Winner Jaime Foxx came in to talk to all of us about the importance of going after our Dreams!! Thank you DJ IRIE, Jaime Foxx and the IRIE Foundation, we will never forget this Awesome Day!!
