The Junior Orange Bowl recently celebrated its new downtown Coral Gables office with an open house reception and ribbon cutting ceremony.
Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason joined Junior Orange Bowl President Don Slesnick III, President-elect Robert Bueso, Ph.D., and Junior Orange Bowl Executive Director Barbara Norland in cutting the orange ribbon on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
Members, volunteers and friends of the Junior Orange Bowl, including leaders of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce, Coral Gables Commissioner Ralph Cabrera, Miami-Dade School Board member Dr. Larry Feldman, former Mayor Don Slesnick II and representatives of the Coral Gables Community Foundation, toured the new offices at 3001 Ponce de Leon Blvd. The organization was previously based on South Dixie Highway.
