Orange Bowl Food & Wine Celebration 2017Friday, May 19, 6:30pm-11:30pm – Broward County Convention Center, 1950 Eisenhower Blvd, Fort Lauderdale

Orange Bowl Food & Wine Celebration presented by Florida Blue, featured samplings from approximately 30 of South Florida’s top restaurants competing for the “Flavor of South Florida” award, as well as the People’s Choice Award and Best Dessert. In addition to extraordinary food, the event also featured live entertainment, raffle prizes, a silent auction and other surprises.

Paula DaSilva, executive chef of the Artisan Beach House at the Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, served as celebrity chef. The evening was hosted by Lisa Petrillo, the Entertainment and Lifestyle Reporter for WFOR, CBS4 in Miami. Evan Benn, editor in chief of INDULGE, the Miami Herald’s luxury lifestyle magazine, served as judges’ captain. One outstanding South Florida resident was honored with the 2017 Keith Tribble Community Service Excellence Award for the work he does to make a difference.

Over the years, the Orange Bowl has been able to invest millions of dollars in the South Florida community through its four pillars of community outreach: youth sports, fundraising and community events, academic programs and scholarships, and legacy gifts. At this year’s event, approximately $100,000 will be given back to the South Florida community. Proceeds from The Orange Bowl Food & Wine Celebration presented by Florida Blue will go toward Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, Special Olympics Florida and the Orange Bowl Leadership Academy.
