Orange Bowl Park of the Week Visits Four Parks Across Miami-Dade County


POW_Week_6_008Now in its 17th season, the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance (YFA) presented by Sports Authority visited four sites across Miami-Dade County on Saturday, October 3. The program recognizes select youth football parks across South Florida each Saturday during the fall to show its continued support of the community.

Park of the Week kicked off with a visit to Harris Field, home of the Dick Conley Memorial Football League. Obie and company then traveled to Naranja Park to watch the South Dade Bulldogs and Florida Youth Football League action. Next on the circuit, Partners Park and the Helping Hands Bulls of the National Youth Football League were honored. Wrapping up the day at Miami Springs Recreation Center, Park of the Week stopped by to visit the Miami Springs Hawks of Miami-Dade Xtreme YFL.

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.
