The Orange Bowl Committee (OBC) recently announced the election of Marlon Hill, managing partner of delancyhill, P.A., as its newest active member for the 2009-2010 year. Hill’s civic involvement includes the Caribbean Bar Association, Miami Parking Authority, Florida Association of Voluntary Action for the Caribbean & the Americas and Miami Light Project.
"I am proud to be part of the long standing Orange Bowl tradition of excellence and community leadership. It is an extraordinary professional and personal opportunity to highlight South Florida's best attributes to our visitors, business community, and especially to youth participating in sports,” stated Hill, newest active member of the Orange Bowl Committee.
“The Orange Bowl Committee is much more than the name of a football game or the name of a festival, it is also about tradition, public service and caring about one’s community. I was pleased to sponsor Marlon Hill because I know that he cares about those same things and was already a valuable asset to the South Florida community. I have no doubt he will be a valuable asset to the Orange Bowl Committee,” states Lynn Washington, Orange Bowl Committee executive committee member, secretary of the Board of Directors, Community Outreach Division Chair and loyal member since 2001.
The OBC will host the 76th FedEx Orange Bowl on January 5, 2010 featuring the champion of the ACC against the first pick among at-large teams eligible for the BCS. Beyond its tourism and promotional benefits, the OBC generates diverse youth sports competition and strong community outreach each year by funding an array of grants, community programs, and scholarships that benefit thousands of South Florida youth.
