Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa Hosts Luau to Benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami and Broward Counties
Over the weekend, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa hosted a luau to help raise money for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Miami and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Broward County. It was the first time the star Miami quarterback could host the event in South Florida, which raised more than $25,000 for Miami and Broward counties.
Guests enjoyed an evening of live entertainment, Hawaiian festivities and exquisite Polynesian cuisine. They were also able to mingle with the star-studded crowd, including head coach Mike McDaniel, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle and passing thrower Jaelan Phillips.
Oh, and there was also a goat (or two) running around in the wild.
Here’s a preview of CBS4’s Mike Cugno’s Tua Tagovailoa Luau.

We had a blast hosting the first Luau with Tua in South Florida. Coach McDaniel earned Hawaiian Warrior status, Jaelan Phillips and Jaylen Waddle brought down the house, but more importantly, Tua helped raise a ton of money for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. @TuaFoundation @CBSMami pic.twitter.com/FCPkaaLvDb

Last year, the Tua Foundation donated more than $93,000 to the Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch to help cover funeral costs and counseling for those affected by the tragic school bus crash that claimed the lives of eight youth. Rest in peace.
In total, the foundation has raised over $500,000 since its inception.

No matter what you think of Tua Tagovailoa’s game on the pitch – and he’s been #good IMO – there’s no doubt what kind of man he is off the pitch. And in my opinion, the world would be a much better place if there were more Tua Tagovailoas.
Tickets for the event were available for purchase at TuaFoundation.org for those interested in attending future events.
PS I hope you have a good Monday 🙂
