Andrew Hertz, president and general manager of Miami Seaquarium, was installed recently as the Orange Bowl Committee’s new president and chair during a reception at the Riviera Country Club in Coral Gables.
An Orange Bowl Committee member since 2001, Hertz succeeds immediate past president and chair O. Ford Gibson as the 75th president of the Orange Bowl Committee.
Hertz, son of Arthur Hertz, chairman and CEO of Wometco Enterprises, will oversee the committee’s continued mission to promote and serve the South Florida community, while presiding over the 2013-14 Discover Orange Bowl Festival and Game, which will mark the 80thanniversary of the Orange Bowl.
In addition to the annual football game, the 2013-14 Discover Orange Bowl Festival includes the 20th Annual MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic and a collection of entertainment, family and youth sports events.
Postcards in a library presentation by an avid collector, “Having Fun, Wish You Were Here: An illustrated History of the Postcard in Florida,” offer a window to another time, a simpler place.
