The Junior Orange Bowl recently celebrated its new downtown Coral Gables office with an open house reception and ribbon cutting ceremony.
Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason joined Junior Orange Bowl President Don Slesnick III, President-elect Robert Bueso, Ph.D., and Junior Orange Bowl Executive Director Barbara Norland in cutting the orange ribbon on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
Members, volunteers and friends of the Junior Orange Bowl, including leaders of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce, Coral Gables Commissioner Ralph Cabrera, Miami-Dade School Board member Dr. Larry Feldman, former Mayor Don Slesnick II and representatives of the Coral Gables Community Foundation, toured the new offices at 3001 Ponce de Leon Blvd. The organization was previously based on South Dixie Highway.
“We are delighted to move into downtown Coral Gables,” Mr. Slesnick III said. “We are very proud and grateful of the support that the city of Coral Gables and the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce gives the Junior Orange Bowl, and our new location can only strengthen our community relationships.”
The Wrecking Crew was a famed Los Angeles collective of studio musicians who backed everyone from Simon & Garfunkel to the Beach Boys in the 1960s, and the Carpenters to the Captain & Tennille in the 1970s.
Persistence paid off for an Archbishop Coleman Carroll senior. She asked (and asked) and ultimately received Dwyane Wade as her prom date.
