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.
Over the years, the Orange Bowl Committee has been able to give millions of dollars back to the South Florida Community through its economic impact, support of events, organizations and causes along with its support of intercollegiate athletics and higher education. 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.
This year Jason Taylor, former All-Pro Miami Dolphins defensive end, will be awarded, the Orange Bowl Keith Tribble Impact Award. This prestigious award is presented annually to a groundbreaker that has helped open doors, inspires by actions, sees beyond the obstacles put before them and made a significant impact in the South Florida community.
The OBC will also present the following three O.B.I.E. Awards which celebrate a commitment to the community, amateur sports and displays of courage. Orange Bowl Community Service Excellence Award, 100 Black Men of South Florida, Inc. , Orange Bowl Amateur Sports Leadership Award, Marcia Pinder, Head Girls Basketball Coach, Dillard High School, and a youth participate of the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance (OBYFA), will receive the Orange Bowl Jr. Courage Award!
