Orange Bowl Park of the Week Visits Four Parks Across Broward County


DSCF1887Now in its 17th season, the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance (YFA) presented by Sports Authority visited four sites across Broward County on Saturday, September 26. The program recognizes select youth football parks across South Florida each Saturday during the fall to show its continued support of the community.

The day began with a stop at Sunset Park to honor the visiting Fort Pierce Seminoles from St. Lucie County. Next, the Park of the Week team headed to Orange Bowl Field at Carter Park, home of the Western Tigers. Carter Park was the second Orange Bowl Legacy Gift, commemorating the 2013 Orange Bowl and National Championship game. Despite heavy rain, the day continued with a visit to Sunview Park and the Southwest Seminoles. Park of the Week concluded with a trip to Opa-locka’s Serbondy Park, the home field of the Opa-locka Hurricanes.

At each stop during the program, OBIE, the Orange Bowl mascot, was joined by Orange Bowl members, ambassadors and staff in distributing promotional items and discounts from Orange Bowl YFA sponsors and presenting each park with a commemorative plaque.

The Orange Bowl continues to positively impact the community with programs such as the Orange Bowl YFA and the Orange Bowl “Drive for Excellence” Girls Golf program, which launched Thursday, September 17, in conjunction with the First Tee of Miami. This is the Orange Bowl’s first girls sports initiative, designed to empower young South Florida women through golf to develop academic, life and athletic skills, resulting in opportunities for collegiate golf scholarships.

The Orange Bowl YFA, which is presented by Sports Authority, is also supported by associate sponsors American Airlines, Clutch Insurance, Comcast, Florida Prepaid College Board, Frito-Lay, Hampton Farms, Marathon Petroleum Company, MetroPCS, Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, Nike, Panter, Panter & Sampedro, The Miami Herald, Toyota, and Wells Fargo.

For more than 82 years, the Orange Bowl has been one of South Florida’s leading civic organizations, driving tourism and economic development, while supporting scholarships and community athletic facilities. Inspiring thousands of student athletes every year, the Orange Bowl’s activities help foster youth confidence, celebrate student achievement, engage the community and enhance the South Florida economy.
