The Orange Bowl Committee (OBC) is excited to announce its annual Orange Bowl Impact and Excellence (O.B.I.E.s) Awards presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s Florida Blue and supported by Publix Super Markets.

This event is one of many ways we are able to continue to give back and support the South Florida Community.

Last year, through this event, we were able to provide $90,000 in donations to three (3) worthy organizations and $15,000 in scholarships to deserving high school seniors.
