Hialeah Park Casino Celebrates Second Year Anniversary 8/14/15- 8/15/15

Hialeah Park Casino, home to “the world’s most beautiful race course,” marks the second year anniversary of its Casino opening with a two-day celebration. The event will take place with a series of concerts. The anniversary comes only months after the announcement that Hialeah Park Casino will undergo a multi-million dollar expansion.

Hialeah Park, established in 1921, was once known as the “THE” park for thoroughbred horseracing. Under the ownership and vision of John J. Brunetti, Sr., the park is once again a shining light in South Florida. Over time, as horse racing began to lose popularity, Brunetti, Sr. felt the park, known for its storied architecture, needed to live on. Today alive and thriving, it features a state of the art casino, which encompasses the spirit of “The Grand Dame”.

Hialeah Park Casino has now become an entertainment complex that features horseracing, gaming, professional boxing, and concerts by some of the world’s most famous Latin American musical acts, including Grammy Award winners Willy Chirino, Marlow Rosado, and Jose Feliciano.

Hialeah Park Casino will celebrate its second anniversary shortly after the announcement that the Casino will undergo a multi-million dollar development, which includes the opening of the new Kings Court VIP Poker Salon, and a state of the art simulcasting facility, as well as renovations to the Hialeah Park Amphitheater. The project will allow for more entertainment and culinary opportunities.

The festivities commence at 6:30PM on Friday, August 14, with University of Miami’s Casino Night, a private event, in the recently renovated Fountain Terrace outdoor venue. From 8:00-10:00PM on Friday night, VIVA will take over the Fountain Terrace to perform the music of The Beatles, The Four Seasons, and The Beach Boys, in an event that is open to the public. Late night entertainment will be indoors from 10:00PM until 2:00AM. Local favorite DJ El Russo will be joined by special guest Adrian Mesa in the Flamingo Lounge located conveniently inside the Casino. One day later, on Saturday, August 15, Hialeah Park will proudly present the critically acclaimed Miami band Locos Por Juana on the Fountain Terrace from 8:00-10:00PM.

John J. Brunetti, Sr. stated: “I was first captivated by the spirit of Hialeah Park as a young horseracing fan. I later had the opportunity to purchase the park. The wind of change inspired me to create Hialeah Park Casino, keeping the park alive for future generations. We invite the South Florida public to celebrate our second-year anniversary with us, as we continue to make history as a community.”

Hialeah Park Casino, home to the “world’s most beautiful race course”, proudly showcases the premier entertainment complex in South Florida. Hialeah Park Casino features acclaimed facility housing over 800 slots, 33 poker tables, and a variety of lounges, cafes, and restaurants.

Saturday – August 1, 2015 from 11am to 7pm
Historic Virginia Key Beach Park
4020 Virginia Beach Drive
Miami, FL 33149
www.virginiakeybeachpark.net

To celebrate the rich 70 years of history of this once segregated “colored only” beach & park. Festivities include exciting time-line exhibits from the 1940’s to present day, classic car show, live music performances, 60’s Motown review featuring “Maryel Epps”, Latin retro music, disco dancers, Junkanoo band, retro prices on most food & beverage items, unlimited free rides on the mini train and carousel and so much more.

August 1, 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, this special beach located on Virginia Key, known as “Bears Cut” became an official “colored only” recreation site as a direct response to a bold protest, led by the late Judge Thomas. The community is invited to attend a day of celebrations, music, a classic car show, live performances, prizes and giveaways. Activities start at 11am. This is a free event for the community with an $8 vehicle entry charge.

“South Florida is in a new renaissance period of expansion and continued population growth,” shared Guy Forchion, Executive Director for the park. “It’s important that we share the rich cultural history, contributions and historic locations that are the building blocks of our great diverse city. African-American pioneers and Bahamian settlers played a vitally important role in the creation of Miami and building the communities and neighborhoods we live in today. For Forchion, those achievements, contributions, struggles and successes must be recognized and honored. “We’re celebrating the 70th anniversary of Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, a cherished, sacred place for Miami’s people of color and a symbol of segregation in the past that now welcomes everyone.”

Throughout the day there will be a variety of entertainment with something for everyone. Community members who can remember the fun times they spent at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park in the 40’s thru 70’s are encouraged to bring copies of pictures to the event and post them on the “Memory Board” for all to see. For those who have stories to tell of their experience during the “segregated years”, they are invited to visit the “Time Tunnel Video Booth” and record their stories for the park’s historic archives.

In addition to a Classic Car Show and Motown Review, there will also be a (best dressed) contest for those who can replicate the fashion of their favorite era in the 40’s through 90’s, winning prizes for originality.

Internationally Renowned Neonatologist Among Other Champions to Be Honored at The Children’s Trust Annual Award Ceremony on June 12th

Dr. Eduardo Bancalari, chief of Newborn Service at Jackson Memorial Hospital and the director of Neonatology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, will receive The Children’s Trust David Lawrence Jr. Champion for Children Award for his contributions over a 50-year medical career on Friday, June 12, 2015 at the Jungle Island Treetop Ballroom.

Together with other organizations and individuals whose extraordinary efforts have benefitted children and families in Miami-Dade County, Dr. Bancalari will be honored at the 10th annual Champions for Children Luncheon Awards Ceremony, hosted by The Children’s Trust.

Dr. Bancalari contributed to the development of one of the largest and most prestigious neonatal programs in the United States; has helped save the lives of thousands of premature newborns; and trained generations of neonatologists working worldwide.

The Children’s Trust awards ceremony honors individuals and programs for their superlative efforts on behalf of children and families. With an attendance of more than 700, this annual signature event is among the most coveted within the community of child advocates and in all of Miami-Dade County. The ceremony serves to inspire others to follow in the path of the award recipients, who include the following:

• Cecilia Seda for Excellence in Direct Service to Children and Families. A program coordinator for seven years with the Community Coalition’s Wise Kidz program, Ms. Seda has helped hundreds of children on the margins – for reasons of disability, shyness or language limitations – to feel safe and secure, able to thrive in the program, at school and in their lives.

• Liberty Academy Daycare and Preschool, 2015 Program of the Year. Converted from what was once an unsafe structure used for illicit purposes, Liberty Academy is now one of the county’s premier early childhood education facilities. Its transformation epitomizes the power of change that this state-of-the-art childcare center represents for one of Miami’s most historically under-served communities.

• Amigos For Kids Strengthens Families and Communities Program, 2015 Program of the Year. This community-based, culturally and linguistically sensitive program helps parents and caregivers break the devastating cycle of child abuse and neglect, while providing complementary support service for their children. The parenting component provides relevant, effective education and support to encourage an optimal environment to strengthen families and promote healthy well-being for all.

• Touching Miami with Love Today’s Leaders Youth Development Program, 2015 Program of the Year. This youth enrichment program supports young people in Overtown and West Homestead to develop essential life skills that buffer them from the negative influences of their communities. This innovative empowerment program supports youth as the key agents to transform communities, helping them to meet their personal goals and thereby strengthening the social fabric of the greater community.

Complete bios of each award recipient are available upon request. The Jungle Island Treetop Ballroom is located at 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, Miami, FL. Reservations are $45.00 per person and a table of ten is $400. For more information or to make your reservation online, visit www.thechildrenstrust.org. The event runs from noon – 1:30 p.m.

About Historic Virginia Key Beach:

2015 marks the 70th year Anniversary of the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. In the 40’s, 50’s & 60’s Virginia Key Beach located on the island of Virginia Key, was designated as a unique vacation spot strictly for blacks. Located in Dade-County, this beach was the answer (for people of color) to South Florida’s whites-only beaches pre-1960’s Civil Rights. By 1979, Virginia Key Beach had been transferred to the City of Miami and was transformed into park status. Then in 1982 the park closed and was left abandoned until 2008. During the nearly 20 years of abandonment, the Virginia Key Beach Park Trust was formed and the park saw life again! This committee of dedicated people achieved getting the park placed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Florida Historic Marker. This “Paradise Renewed” is also designated as a Historic Site by the Miami Historic & Environmental Preservation Board! Today, Historic Virginia Key Beach Park is an anchor in the rebirth of the beautiful natural island of Virginia Key, “Miami’s Central Park”!

Street Festival Brings The Best of Wynwood to Life!

Wynwood Life is back and packed with everything that Miami loves. The colorful, annual event is all about art, music, fashion and food. This year’s new location will feature more artists, fashion shows, art displays, musical bands, interactive features and a new collaborative cooking showcase that will highlight popular Wynwood restaurants and chefs.

A wide selection of featured artists will be organized by world renowned painter Alexander Mijares, who will also design the festival’s 2015 collective poster. For the first time ever, Mijares will have a pop-up gallery showcasing his unique style of art, which finds inspiration in the colorful energy of both this city and heritage. “It’s unusual to have an artist of his caliber showcasing at a festival. Wynwood Life is a great place to see him in action, and while you’re there, be sure to pick up an original work of art,” said Javi Zayas, co-founder of SWARM, the organizer behind the festival.

The Peroni Style Lounge will once again feature fashionistas at their pop-up boutique, and during the event, it will showcase multiple fashion shows with local boutiques, fashion bloggers and stylists.

It wouldn’t be Wynwood without Food Trucks, so the festival will have the biggest food truck rally ever with over 50 favorites and a number of food vendors ready to please all taste buds. In addition, the event has partnered with Wynwood neighbor, Miami Club Rum. Several bars will be equipped with the hand-crafted rum made in Miami’s first distillery by artisans with a family history of rum production that dates back five generations. Beer lovers rejoice! The Blue Moon Brew Pub will be back with a fully stocked selection of cold brews and mixed drinks. New this year is the Wynwood Culinary Showcase, which will feature top restaurants and chefs from the area showcasing their cuisine. Wynwood Life is sponsored by Miami Club Rum

This year’s musical line-up is bigger and better, featuring many local favorites including Problem Kidz, Spam Allstar, Suenalo, The Tremends, Danger Flow and Elastic Bond to name a few. For a complete schedule of performances, click on Live Music at www.WynwoodLife.com.

What is a blood moon? A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth passes between the sun and the moon. In a blood moon, the moon is full, and as the sun’s light passes through the earth’s atmosphere, it casts a reddened shadow on the moon. Full lunar eclipses are rare, and blood moons even more so, but neither is unheard of. The next total Lunar Eclipse will occur on April 4th, 2015…

A happy hour with drinks provided by Wicked Dolphin Rum / Mako Vodka and food by Salt Waterfront Restaurant will precede a talk by Reef Guard President, Professor Michael J. Beach, on the wreck of the Half Moon, formerly known as the Germania. This ship has a very interesting and storied past. The site is made more unique by the fact that our sponsor, 1-800 Yacht Charters, has a replica of the vessel within its fleet. Hence the title of the talk “History Comes To Life”!

Suggested donation is $10 and, with it, you are entitled to free food and drinks and entered into a raffle for great door prizes!
