“Our goal is to get Miami in the top 20, minimum,” he says. “We know people can donate money, but we’d also like them to donate their time, something that is truly more precious to them. That’s the challenge.” And how did Quintana personally become involved? “Five years ago, [The Little Lighthouse cofounder] Robert Sena invited me to volunteer at the McLamore Children’s Center. After my third visit, the kids I’d connected with would greet me with hugs, or jump into my arms. This opened my eyes to children out there in need of love and caring—two things that no check, however big, can provide.”
