Santa’s Enchanted Forest Partners with Dwyane Wade

Brian Shechtman’s leadership of his company, Santa’s Enchanted Forest, includes not only finding attractions for his Miami theme park but inviting nonprofit agencies to join in the festivities as well. For example, Brian Shechtman has associated himself with the Wade’s World Foundation (WWF) for several years.

Founded by star guard Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat, WWF’s mission is to support efforts to improve the health and literacy of underserved children, whether through other agencies or the foundation itself. Since 2007, WWF has raised $3.2 million to aid youth in Chicago, Milwaukee, and South Florida.

Reflecting the foundation’s core values, the Live to Dream program encourages young people to engage in service projects in their communities. After the completion of these projects, they become eligible for seats at a Miami Heat home game during the regular season.

Project participants must document their activities photographically and answer questions about the reasons for choosing the project, the impact it made on the community, and what they learned from it.

From the Desk of Brian Schectman: Visiting Theme Parks with Young Children, Part 1

Theme parks are fun for kids of all ages. However, enjoying a relatively stress-free day at a theme park with a young child requires planning, a bit of strategy, and a lot of patience.

Pack supplies for the day, and then stow everything in a backpack. Pack everything you need, but pack lightly. Prepare for your day at the park the evening before, because waiting until the last minute almost always guarantees that something important is forgotten.

For young children, include diapers, wet wipes, and a change of clothes. If it looks like rain, take ponchos or lightweight rain jackets. Dress for comfort. Ensure everybody wears sturdy, comfortable shoes and no flip flops. Include a swimsuit and a towel if the park contains a water park. Remember your cell phone, and if your phone doesn’t include a camera, pack one.

A Christmas theme park in Miami, Santa’s Enchanted Forest routinely hosts nonprofit organizations, including local children’s organizations and well-known entities such as Ronald McDonald House and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The park is owned by Brian Schectman, who established it more than 29 years ago.
