 SANTA CLAUS TO ARRIVE AT MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
 IN SUPPORT OF 1991 DADE COUNTY TOY DRIVE
 MIAMI, Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Santa Claus will arrive by helicopter at the Miami International Airport Heliport on Thursday, Dec. 12, at 5 p.m. to kick off the Latin Builders Association's fund raising efforts for the 1991 Dade County Toy Drive.
 The Latin Builders Association has invited Dade County officials and community business leaders to welcome Santa on his arrival to Miami and to present Santa with donations towards the purchase of toys for needy children. The Dade County Aviation Department will host the event.
 Aviation Department Director Rick Elder, who spearheaded an airport fund raising effort, will present Santa Claus with a check representing donations from the Miami International Airport community.
 The Dade County Toy Drive this year is expected to benefit 9,000 needy children throughout the community. The toy drive is supported by volunteers from governmental agencies and local businesses and associations, such as the Latin Builders Association.
 Dade County Commissioner Mary Collins, a strong supporter of the county-wide effort, said, "With so many needy children in our community, I am pleased to see this commitment from both the public and private sectors."
 The drive will culminate with a special event at the Miami Arena on Dec. 22, 1991, where children will be brought in from shelters, foster homes and care centers to enjoy a program of entertainment, food and gift distribution.
