2016 OBFW

Thank you to all who came to savor the flavors of South Florida at the Orange Bowl Food & Wine event, which featured unlimited samplings from over 30 of South Florida's top restaurants and food purveyors!

Chefs and restaurants from all over the South Florida area served up their best bites for a chance to be named Flavor of South Florida.

Over the years, the Orange Bowl has been able to invest millions of dollars toward South Florida youth and sports through support of intercollegiate athletics, education, events, organizations and causes, in addition to the tremendous economic impact it provides. Proceeds from The Orange Bowl Food & Wine event go toward Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, Special Olympics Florida and the Orange Bowl Leadership Academy.

Last year, the Orange Bowl Committee and Make-A-Wish Southern Florida surprised 12-year-old “Wish Kid” Brooke by bringing her on stage to cook her favorite dish – Chicken Alfredo – with chef Rocco DiSpirito. She was then told that her wish to go on a Disney Cruise with her family has been granted.

The Orange Bowl also honored an individual for her dedication to the South Florida community. Penny Shaffer was recognized for the significant impact she has made in the community with the Orange Bowl Keith Tribble Community Service Excellence Award. As Market President for Florida Blue, where she is responsible for business operations in the South Florida area, Shaffer has always been passionate about her community and making a difference. She is a widely respected civic leader active in a variety of non-profit and civic organizations, including the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, where she currently serves as chair, and the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, where she’s a former chair. Shaffer is also a board member of United Way and a longtime volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and Take Stock in Children. She’s never one to shy away from a challenge and that includes her battle over the last 18 months with breast cancer. Shaffer has handled her diagnosis and treatment with the strength, courage and leadership that has always defined her.
