Orange Bowl Leaders Visit Football Program In Wellington

The Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance visited five parks in Palm Beach and Monroe counties on Saturday, Oct. 24. Park of the Week, now in its 17th year, recognizes select youth football parks across South Florida each Saturday during the fall.

Among parks visited by the Park of the Week team was Village Park in Wellington to see the Western Football Communities League in action.

At each stop during the program, OBIE, the Orange Bowl mascot, was joined by Orange Bowl members, ambassadors and staff in distributing promotional items and discounts from Orange Bowl YFA sponsors and presenting each park with a commemorative plaque.

The Orange Bowl continues to positively impact the community with programs such as the Orange Bowl YFA and the new Orange Bowl “Drive for Excellence” Girls Golf program.

For more than 82 years, the Orange Bowl has been one of South Florida’s leading civic organizations, driving tourism and economic development, while supporting scholarships and community athletic facilities. Inspiring thousands of student athletes every year, the Orange Bowl’s activities help foster youth confidence, celebrate student achievement, engage the community and enhance the South Florida economy.
