Each year Nelson teams up with the Miami Beach PAL (Police Athletic League) to make sure every family has a Happy Thanksgiving by donating turkeys and baskets full of food to low income families. This year was no different. This morning, several community members, leaders and police assisted in distributing Thanksgiving baskets to over 500 families at Nautilus Middle School. The basket included a 1-12 lb. turkey, vegetables, canned goods and a 2 liter Coca-Cola donated by the Coca-Cola Company. This is the 35th Annual Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway.

Founded in 1958, the Miami Beach Police Athletic League (oldest PAL in Florida) has an impressive track record as a community crime prevention program.

Under the leadership of a full-time police officer as Executive Director, and with vital assistance from a volunteer board made up of citizens and local law enforcement officers, PAL offers the youth of the community an array of recreational, athletic and educational activities. Programs are designed with a two-fold purpose: to create better relations between law enforcement officers and youth, and to prevent juvenile delinquency.

For almost 50 years, thousands of youths (ages six to twenty-one) have been involved with PAL programs.

Many former PAL participants have become accountants, attorneys, doctors, educators, fire fighters, police officers, and professional athletes, just to name a few.

Former major league slugger Sammy Sosa has purchased an oceanfront estate in the secluded enclave of Golden Beach.

The 7,273 square foot home, located on more than one-half acre at 667 Ocean Blvd is a two-story, 7 bedroom, 8 ½ bath estate and has 75 ft of direct oceanfront views.

Built in 1998, the property last sold for $6.4 million in 2002. The home was designed to maximize its oceanfront location, with ocean views throughout. Sosa, who is eighth on the all-time home run list with 609 round-trippers, is frequently spotted throughout Miami.

“Sammy is a big fan of Miami, and it’s wonderful that he has chosen to purchase a home here,” says Nelson. “This is one of the most beautiful homes in all of Golden Beach. I’ve no doubts he is truly going to enjoy it.”


Building on a successful three-year run, Ketel One and MIAMI magazine have hand-selected South Florida native and EWM’s very own Top Producer, Nelson Gonzalez, to compete for the title of Modern Hispanic Gentleman.

Nelson is one of four gentlemen in the running for the title. The gentleman who scores the most votes will win a $5,000 donation for his charity.
