Gulf Breeze non-profit organization, Mr. Robbins Neighborhood (MRN), hosted their 2nd-annual holiday breakfast event on Saturday.

MRN's "Breakfast with Fred Claus" was held on Saturday, Dec. 16th at the Marie K. Young Wedgewood Community Center.

The free community event featured a gourmet breakfast, live music, a live portrait artist, a cookie decorating station, Christmas-themed arts and crafts, games, and the opportunity to meet and take photos with "Fred Claus", played by local sports legend Fred Robbins.

Sixteen bikes donated by OnBikes Pensacola and Escambia County Council PTA were also gifted to children in need.

MRN was established in 2014 by Robbins, a 12-year NFL veteran, and his wife, Tia.

The organization’s foundation is rooted in the couple’s passion to provide guidance and mentorship to young athletes on their life journeys.

Robbins now works with young football players as an athletic coach at EXOS, a sector of Andrew’s Institute.

He serves as a board member and Secretary of the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce and supports many local charities and events.
