September is Hunger Action Month and the organization Feeding South Florida is encouraging all South Floridians to do something in September about the nearly 1 million people in our area, including more than 340,000 children, who face hunger each day.
In a compilation video featuring American entertainers and celebrities Nick Cannon, Rachael Ray, Ellie Krieger, Alison Sweeney, Samantha Harris and 50 Cent, the entertainers will urge the public to get involved in Hunger Action Month. The video will explain why they celebrities are as passionate about the issue of hunger and why it is important to take action now.
Also, Sept. 6, will be National Light Up Hunger Initiative/Go Orange! Day and South Florida residents are encouraged to wear orange on that day.
Other events throughout September willinclude premier restaurants in the Miami area competing to see which can raise the most money for Feeding South Florida; the Corner Bakery Café’s opening parties and grand opening fundraiser will be Friday and Saturday, and on Monday the new Miami restaurant at 8888 SW 136th St. at The Falls Shopping Center, will match donations to Feeding South Florida.

Do you like a great mystery story? Well the play, Lights, Camera, Murder! could be just the thing for you.
The interactive play, which invites everyone present to participate, will be at 7 p.m. on Sept. 13 and 14 at the cafe in the Knights Inn, 26 Diplomat Pkwy. in Hallandale Beach.
In this case, the "dangerous" person is Barbara Fox, the producer/director of "Mystery on the Menu," an interactive theater company she founded in 1986 in Washington. She moved to Florida in 2000, and recently re-located to Hollywood. Since founding the company Fox has presented "hundreds" of murder mysteries at hotels, resorts, private homes and aboard trains and cruise ships for corporate and private events.
At the event, everyone in the audience can examine clues, share information, ask questions and try to solve the crime.
The cost is $38 per person, but those who say "Welcome to Hollywood," will only have to pay a discount price of $21 per person. Refreshments (sandwiches, pizza, crepes, wine and beer) will be available for purchase. Advance reservations are required, and must be made by calling 786-683-6078.
