Registration is open, now, at tinyurl.com/BrowardKettleKrush2020.

The Salvation Army serves over 15,000 Broward County residents, every year, and more than 70% of its funding comes directly from the community – individuals, groups and businesses.

The race is named after The Salvation Army’s iconic Red Kettles which are staffed during the holidays to collect funds for families in need. Last year, The Salvation Army of Broward County raised $213,205 in just five short weeks in November and December. In addition to the Kettle Krush 5K and the holiday Red Kettle program, The Salvation Army of Broward County feeds hundreds of families through its annual free Thanksgiving meal initiative in partnership with The Cheesecake Factory, and distributes over 8,000 gifts to over 2,100 children though its Angel Trees and Holiday Toy Shop.

Registration fees for the third annual Kettle Krush Virtual 5K are $10 for kids (ages 2 – 8), $20 per participant (18 and under) and $25 for registrants (19 and over). Team registration is $20 per person for teams of three or more. The first 100 participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. T-shirts can be picked-up, in advance, during a special drive-through at The Salvation Army of Broward Area Command, 1445 West Broward Blvd Fort Lauderdale, on Wednesday, September 16 (3 – 7 p.m.), Thursday, September 17 (11 a.m. – 2 p.m.) and Friday, September 18 (4 p.m. – 8 p.m.).
The virtual event will feature a live leader board link updated every two minutes with real-time tabulation of overall, gender and age group categories provided by AccuChipUSA, Inc. and awards will be given to runners within the “top 3” categories and age groups.

During the virtual race time window, The Salvation Army of Broward encourages participants to email selfies, photos or short videos of their personal race with the hashtag #BrowardKettleKrush2020 for consideration to be posted on the organization’s social media sites. Participants can also display their chosen racecourse by uploading maps from the following fitness app trackers: Strava, Garmin, Polar, MapMyRun, RunKeeper, MovesCount, EndoMondo and TomTom Sports (course maps will be publicly viewable).

The Salvation Army of Broward County Virtual Kettle Krush 5K is sponsored by FPL, Fast Printz, Forney Construction, Edd Helms Group, Acme Barricades and Bimbo Bakeries.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade (BGCMD) is thrilled to accept new members for its 2020 in-person Summer Camp, “Virtual Club” Summer Camp, and in-person Sports Conditioning Camp. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing efforts/CDC guidelines, BGCMD is offering a smaller, limited in-person Summer Camp and Sports Conditioning Camp.

“We are excited to offer our summer programs while taking every precaution to ensure the safety and protection of all youth in our programs ― the No. 1 priority of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade,” said Alex Rodriguez-Roig, president of BGCMD. “These positive programs are very important to keeping our youth members engaged during the summer months.”

In-Person Summer Camp Program
Just like the after-school program during the school year, the Summer Camp program enables children to learn values such as friendship, honesty and teamwork by providing a safe and secure environment where they can develop into productive and independent young adults.

It is offered at the Hank Kline, Northwest, Kendall and South Beach Clubs, and staffed by qualified full-time and summer staff. Children participate in fun indoor activities such as arts and crafts, computer room, game room, table games, movie room, basketball and much more. Outdoor activities include organized group games. Members are placed in groups of nine members per one adult staff.

The in-person Summer Camp program is open to all boys and girls ages 5–17 (must be entering kindergarten in the fall; cannot turn 17 before Sept. 1, 2018), and runs Monday–Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; however, counselors are available to supervise children from 8:15 a.m.–6 p.m.

A free nutritious lunch and afternoon snack is provided daily at no additional cost, or children may bring their own lunch. At each Club, awards will be given to recognize the boys and girls who have made a positive contribution to the Summer Camp program.

To register, parents must come in person to the specific Club where their child(ren) will be attending the Summer Camp program. Mailed or faxed registration cards will not be accepted. Children will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis until the program is filled.

The price for the in-person Summer Camp program starts at $200 for the entire summer and is available at the following Clubs:
· Hank Kline Club, 2805 SW 32 Avenue Miami, FL 33133
· Kendall Club, 9475 North Kendall Dr. Miami, FL 33176
· South Beach Club, 1200 Michigan Avenue Miami, FL 33139
· Northwest Club, 10915 NW 14 Avenue Miami, FL 33167

“Virtual Club” Summer Camp
BGCMD youth members can participate in fun activities virtually including story time, STEM, arts and crafts, physical fitness, yoga, homework assistance, mentoring, social-emotional learning, “virtual get-togethers” and much more. All activities are conducted via Zoom and schedules vary by Club and age group. Virtual activities are offered daily from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. in 40-minute sessions.

To date, the “Virtual Club” Summer Camp has served 320 youth through more than 5,350 unique virtual visits. BGCMD has provided 1,304 hours in virtual learning sessions.

To register for the “Virtual Club” as a new youth club member, visit bgcmia.org/education-after-school/boys-girls-clubs-of-miami-dade-virtual-club/. The full schedule and registration information is available by contacting Diana Perez at dperez@bgcmia.org.

In-Person Sports Conditioning Summer Camp
Sport programs are available during the afternoon to the early hours of the night. This is the time of day when children, especially teens, are more likely to engage in harmful activities. They are offered Monday through Friday. Coaches are volunteers who help the children learn proper techniques for the sport.

The Sports Conditioning Summer Camp starts on June 22, and is available at the Kendall Club only. The cost is $60. It includes four weeks of conditioning with coaches with experience in sports conditioning.

Workout groups will include no more than nine children. Each day, all participants will have their temperature taken prior to participating. Hand washing stations will be provided. Participants must bring their own water bottle and face covering. Additional water stations will be provided.

Sessions for children aged 5–10 will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 6–8 p.m. Sessions for children aged 11–14 will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6–8 p.m. Fridays are reserved for rainout make-ups.

To register, fill out the registration form, sign the waiver and make a payment at bgcmia.org/sports-programs-leagues/.

This second staging in a multiyear initiative celebrating Broward County’s Caribbean heritage displays the works of three artist-contributors. Photo artist and curator David I. Muir (Jamaica) shares a selection of photos from the “Caribbean-American” collection, printed on canvas and featuring Caribbean scenes around Broward County. Two-time photography participant Sonya Sanchez-Arias (Trinidad) shares pieces from her “Fragments” collection, in which images she has captured from the Caribbean region are digitally manipulated, printed on metal, and mounted on natural, reclaimed materials. Mixed-media artist Krystle Sabdul (Jamaica) has included a variety of expressive, oversized portraits. The historical aspect of the exhibition, curated by Calibe Thompson (Jamaica), traces the Caribbean community’s roots in Broward through news clippings, archival photos and information displaying the influence of diverse island people on the vibrant fabric of Greater Fort Lauderdale.

Support for the project has been provided, in part, by the Broward County Cultural Division and the following Funds at the Community Foundation of Broward: Helen and Frank Stoykov Charitable Endowment Fund, David and Francie Horvitz Family Fund, Ann Adams Fund, Mary and Alex Mackenzie Community Impact Fund, Blockbuster Entertainment Unrestricted Fund, Robert E. Dooley Unrestricted Fund for Broward, Harold D. Franks Fund and Jan Moran Unrestricted Fund.

History Fort Lauderdale is proud to showcase a variety of annual multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history. Permanent exhibits include “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale.

Admission to “The Island Imprint: The Art and History of the Caribbean Community in Broward County” is free with History Fort Lauderdale general museum admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID).

Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33317
RSVP / Register
Cost: $400 per person

Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale will host its 11th annual Golf Invitational to benefit A Prom to Remember on Monday, March 23, from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., at Fort Lauderdale Country Club, the oldest private country club in Broward County. A Prom to Remember is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the ultimate prom experience for teens who have been affected by cancer, at no-cost to their families.

Funds from this tournament will help to create this year’s prom on May 8 at the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale. Over 200 teens will experience an unforgettable night with Miami Dolphin players, Miami Heat and Miami Hurricane cheerleaders/dancers along with local celebrities, DJs and more.

The tournament format consists of registration and lunch at 11 a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start for a four-person scramble. A silent auction with luxury items awards ceremony and dinner will be held at 6 p.m. This will be the first charitable tournament to be held on Fort Lauderdale Country Club’s newly renovated North Course.

The North Course project, overseen by Kipp Schulties, principal architect of Kipp Schulties Golf Design (KSGD), underwent an extensive renovation including replacement of the greens and the provision of tees between 4,800 yards and 7,100 yards, making the course more enjoyable for both men and women of all abilities. The upgrades created an elevated level of excitement for members adding to the facility’s 18-Hole, Par 72 South Course which was built in 1926, remodeled twice and is often home to many corporate and non-profit events, annually.

In the Broward County area, which has numerous golf courses, Fort Lauderdale Country Club is a select private club that offers 36-holes of manicured championship golf in a forested park-like setting. Visually, the Club is truly a unique oasis as fairways are lined with stately native trees and colorful beds of flowers, as opposed to houses.

The Blue Martini Golf Invitational at Fort Lauderdale Country Club is also sponsored by Cheney Brothers, Daoud’s Fine Jewelry, WSVN and Ultimate Software.

The golf fee to participate in the 11th Annual Blue Martini is $400 per person or $1,600 for a Corporate Sponsorship foursome which includes a tee or a green sign and company recognition. Fees includes lunch, greens fees and golf cart, a golfer’s gift bag, day-of-event contests, on-course beverages and the awards dinner and ceremony. Golf club rentals are available for an additional fee. Registration is required by visiting http://bit.ly/APTRGolfTourney2020 or by calling 877-385-7766.

– Miami Parking Authority

About Transform 5th Street:
The focus of this project is to transform SW 5th Street between SW 3rd Ave and 4th Ave in Little Havana into a fully accessible public space for all community members. The street currently separates Jose Marti Park into two isolated sections but can quickly become a space where community members can gather, community events will occur, and people feel safer and more attracted to the park overall.

Working with Little Havana residents, we are bringing a series of activities and events — all inspired by local community members — to SW 5th Street. The goal is to close the street for pedestrian and community use, as an extension of the Jose Marti Park area.
