Dear friends:

I’m writing to proudly announce my involvement with The Tina Dailey Foundation (TTDF), a 501(c)3 nonprofit established by my dear friend Vilma Dailey in honor of her daughter, Tina Dailey.

After the passing of her beloved daughter, Vilma chose the path of spirit and compassion; in the face of devastating grief, she devoted her energy to fighting back. Vilma worked tirelessly to launch TTDF and is determined, through this foundation, to help anyone who struggles to maintain sobriety and to offer support and understanding to their loved ones.

Vilma’s strength has inspired me to walk alongside her in this mission. As an active board member at TTDF, I intend to raise awareness and advance their cause through combined promotional and fundraising efforts with my own Dade County Sports Foundation.

TTDF’s mission is to help individuals who suffer from alcohol and drug addiction, empowering them to break the cycle one day at a time, recover, and live the lives they were meant to live. TTDF aims to deliver evidence-based recovery and support services, to identify and share resources, and to carry a message of healing and hope, fighting harmful misconceptions through awareness and education. At its core, TTDF is driven by the belief in what science has been saying for over 70 years: Addiction sufferers are not bad people who need to be good; they’re sick people who need to get well.

If you’d like to support TTDF or learn more, you may wish to explore their website, subscribe to their newsletter, or follow them on Facebook or Instagram. Lastly, if you know someone who is struggling with addiction, you can email info@thetinadaileyfoundation.org for resources and support.
