Don King Productions has been in contact with the CWS-Miami Office since Nov. 5, the night CWS Cuban client and boxer Angelo Santana successfully defended his Super Lightweight title against Broderick Antoine in Hollywood, FL.  King, Santana’s promoter, had invited CWS-Miami staff into the ring that night after learning how CWS had helped Santana upon arrival to Florida from Cuba in 2007 on a homemade raft. 

Continuing the relationship, King brought his Turkey Giveaway to the CWS-Miami Office just before Christmas.  A total of 173 turkeys were distributed to CWS-Miami clients and CWS purchased another 20 turkeys for some clients who came at the last minute.
