Ticket profits to be donated to Dwyane Mitchell's family
BOCA RATON, Fla. – A South Florida soccer team is hosting a game for charity after seeing a recent report on Local 10 News about a sick teenager diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.
Dwyane Mitchell, who is the son of Miami Beach Police Detective Christopher Mitchell, was found unresponsive by his grandmother May 16.
Doctors told Mitchell's family that the teen went into cardiac arrest after contracting a viral infection. They also determined that Mitchell had the heart disease and Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.
Mitchell suffered a large amount of swelling to his brain, but the family is hopeful that he will recover.
After calling the Miami Beach Police Department, De Souza thought the best thing to do was involve the Palm Beach Suns. According to the Boca Raton Tribute, the Suns will be donating all of its ticket profits to Mitchell's family during the team's upcoming game versus the Florida Adrenaline.
The game takes place at 7 p.m. Saturday at West Boca Community High School. For more information, click here.
