City Hall still bestows architectural grace and finesse upon Coral Gables By: Liz Kobak

When one thinks of architect ural master y in South Florida, attention turns to the series of buildings erected in Coral Gables in the vicinity of the celebrated Miracle Mile. On an even more local scale and joining the ranks of the Biltmore Hotel is Coral Gables’ City Hall, which building experts view as embodying absolute architectural perfection. “It’s one of the architectur-

al jewels of South Florida,” observed University of Miami Professor of Architecture Rick Lopez of the municipal building erected in 1924 and modeled after the Italian Renaissance. On the list of the National Register of Historic Places as designated by Dade County since 1974, Coral Gables’ City Hall is modeled after a Mediterranean palazzo; the Hall comprises a simple rectangular building with a semi-circular council chamber attached, and

a stair hall in the center is illuminated from above. The building’s exterior reflects how it functions on the inside as it still serves as a municipal building today, with the building department, council chambers and office of Mayor James Cason taking residence. “It is a very special building in terms of design,” said Lopez of how City Hall marries well with its surroundings. City Hall is part of the collection of initial buildings

Meeting the Needs of All Floridians

By: Chris Carson

Chief Justice Jorge Labarga of the Florida Supreme Court identified the need for permanent, systemic changes to the current model of access to civil justice in Florida. He foresaw the necessity of addressing the unmet legal needs of low- and moderateincome Floridians. As a result, the Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice will tackle the aforementioned is-

sue by reviewing the Florida legal assistance delivery system as a whole, seeking to improve access to civil justice and raising awareness of the legal needs of Florida’s disadvantaged residents. I had the opportunity to obtain information from Frank Digon-Greer, who is working for the commission, and gain some insight into what the citizens can expect from the Florida Commission Continued on page 13

Residents of Key Biscayne can trace their community’s roots back to the early 1870’s when settlers first bestowed the area with the name Biscayne. South Florida has since developed and prospered into several communities, including that of Miami Shores now home to 10,000 residents. One of Miami Shores’ current residents and community leaders, Executive Director Jesse Walters, shared some insights into the now thriving village. “I moved here in 2008. I was elected to village council in 2011 and re-elected (as Vice Mayor) in 2013. I was hired as Executive Director of the Greater Miami Shores Chamber of Commerce in July 2011,” recalled Walters. She and her colleagues at the Village of Miami Shores Chamber of Commerce have witnessed growth since the post-World War II era when many of Miami Shores’ important community structures were first erected. Notable buildings including the Village Hall, the Country Club, the Community Center, and

Brockway Library were completed during this time. The 1980’s and commercial development of Biscayne Boulevard would impact Miami Shores’ downtown business district; roughly 25 years of hardships would follow. These troubled times would culminate in the reconstruction of NE 2nd Avenue and a renewed desire on the part of community leaders to make the Village of Miami Shores a desirable destination again. The Village is now a dynamic area for arts and culture. “I believe that we have a

vibrant and diverse offering of both, thanks to the Miami Theater Center in our downtown, as well as the efforts of the Fine Arts Commission of Miami Shores,” remarked Walters. The Miami Theater Center, which opened in 1949, had fallen into a dilapidated state until Stephanie Ansin, and other residents of Miami Shores, returned it to its small town charm. The Miami Theater Center now entertains and educates people of all ages and skill levels. The MiContinued on page 10

You know what they say, breakfast is the most important meal, and at ALL DAY restaurant, you literally get to dine on breakfast food the entire day. What could be better? Recently, I had the opportunity to stop and try this new local establishment and was not disappointed. Upon arrival, my plus one and I were greeted by a friendly and welcoming staff that led us to a cozy corner booth. From our booth and before our delicious meal arrived, our eyes feasted on ALL DAY’s minimalistic and rustic decor. Instantly eye-grabbing is its neon green coffee menu, situated above the bar and brightly listing ten different coffee options. And speaking of cafe, I ordered the “& Milk” latte that would make any true coffee-lover’s heart soar. After much sightseeing, the food arrived, and very well presented might I add. I had one of their most renowned sandwiches dubbed “The Runny & Everything”, which is heaven made out of fried egg, bacon, sharp cheddar, lettuce, tomato, garlic aioli and everything bun. My guest had the “Baked Florida Eggs” which consisted of egg, leek, spinach, pecorino, citrus and sourdough toast, and we both shared a side of “Blue Grits” with butter, scallion, salt and pepper. De-li-cious to say the least! I highly recommend these plates, especially “The Runny & Everything”.

as a nod to the term used in “street talk” that someone may use to emphasize how devoted to a particular thing they are. For example, “Do you run?” a response might be “Oh, I run, I run ALL DAY!” For us, it’s about doing what we do, that is, being committed to excellence and greatness, without end. Do you foresee adding lunch and dinner plates? We currently do have many lunch items such as our House Made Pastrami and Kale Salad. Also, many of our items are easily “convertible” to lunch time, such as our “Baked Eggs” and “Avocado Tartine”.

Each dish has a purpose on the menu, trying to meet different hungers someone may have: light and classic, or big and indulgent, for example. Then we look at how all the flavors and textures work together in each dish, making sure they are as close Maria Ruiz

We do plan to expand on this more in the upcoming months, though. Also, once we receive our beer & wine license, we plan to extend our hours and offer more evening bites as well. What are your goals/visions, for the restaurant, for the future? Our vision is to be an institution of excellence in terms of food and beverage sourcing and execution, hospitality, and overall experience for our guests, staff and community. There will never be another ALL DAY in Miami; we’d like to keep this one as special as possible and continue to improve on it as much as we can.

One bite out of that, and you’ll be wondering where it’s been your whole life. ALL DAY’s tantalizing menu is credited to Chef Charles Lutka, who describes his creations as good old “American breakfast”. The menu boasts everything from “Smoked Mahi”, “French Toast”, “Frijoles Negros” as well as quite a large tea, beer and wine selection. Apart from food sampling, I had the pleasure of interviewing ALL DAY owner, Camila Ramos, who gave me the inside scoop from the restaurant’s logo, menu and even her vision for the future:

Why did you choose downtown as the location? Downtown chose us. ALL DAY was created specifically for our space. Our building is one of the few remaining buildings over 100 years old in Miami, and we think that’s something truly special and rare in this city. This neighborhood is comfortably situated at the northern entrance of downtown, just west of the Arts & Entertainment district and just east of the culturally-rich Overtown neighbor-

to perfection as possible. We take this very seriously! Apart from the scrumptious food, one of ALL DAY’s many allures is its versatility and ability to attract such a diverse crowd. Whether you’re a family looking for a comfortable place to take the kids, or you’re someone looking for a quick bite, ALL DAY has a bit of everything for everyone at a reasonable price.

Fugitives are Hard to Trust

Performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison are memorable. [Photo courtesy of The Orchard Films]

By: Tatiana Fiandaca

New Zealand’s majestic scenery is the perfect backdrop for the story of Ricky Baker and his uncle Hec. Raised on a foster care institution, the thirteen year old boy is brought to his new home to become the loving son that Bella and Hec never had, only to find himself trapped in a in a series of misleading situations.

Obsessed with hip-hop music and food, Ricky - and his dog Tupac- try to run away every night, but Bella knows exactly how to bring them back each time. After an unexpected and lifechanging event, Ricky and grumpy Uncle Hec are forced to abscond into the bush to escape the law. Confronted by Ricky’s lack of survival skills, Hec has no choice but to rely on the former’s teenage companion; the duo embark on

an adventure laden with challenges that force them to trust each other. The differences between Ricky and Hec start to dissipate when they become New Zealand’s most wanted, and news of their capture dominates the media, making them overnight celebrities. The Hunt for the Wilderpeople is beautifully scored, and cinematography is taken to a whole new level. Taika Waititi -who also co-starred as the Minister- has certainly delivered one of his best performances in this film, which has been warmly hailed by international critics. Similarly, performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison are memorable, and throughout the story, a variety of quirky characters progressively enrich the plot of this comedy. “It’s one of the most fun shoots I’ve ever been involved with and was shot in locations ranging from bush north of Auckland, to the rugged part of West Auckland, to the volcanic plateau of Mt. Ruapehu to Horopito where Roger Donaldson’s classic Smash Palace was shot,” said the Director, when earlier this year, the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Based on Barry Crump’s novel Wild Pork and Watercress, this unconventional adventure has a powerful message about family, friendship and overcoming adversity and is divided into ten chapters clearly defined by silly-toned situations, where the two fugitives are

increasingly entangled in an effort to outwit their antagonists’ intentions. “I love characters that live on the margins, that are underdogs really struggling to make their way in the world, and dealing with what life has thrown at them. I always like those characters. I grew up in a household of renegades and people who have been struggling, and in a country where people are struggling, so those are my heroes. That’s why I always get drawn to these characters,” said Waititi to Fandango. New Zealand’s picturesque landscapes have inspired the cinematic industry with blockbuster classics such as ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’, but ultimately, the true magic about this film is the perfect blend of a masterfully executed screenplay, outstanding performances and comic characters. Recently screened at MDC’s Tower Theater, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople is one of the summer’s most promising flicks.

City Hall Still Bestows Architectural Grace and Finesse Upon Coral Gables building elements on a rolling basis. “These drawings might serve to help guide new developments in Coral Gables,” said Lopez of the UM submissions for HABS (Historic American Buildings Survey), an organization that accepts student submissions for the government’s assessment that eventually lands in its archive. “This has a kind of manual or guide book for designing new buildings.” While recent developments display considerable attention to cataloguing these drawings and more, developers at times have interests opposing those of preservationists. “The zoning director has been working on a catalogue of drawings of Coral Gables. I think the hope is that the quality of architecture is maintained at a very high level while new developments continue to thrive in the city. Many times,

in the city, which includes the worldrenowned Biltmore Hotel amid garden walls, piers, the Venetian pool and more. “Civic buildings helped define the character of this new and inventive place called Coral Gables,” underlined Lopez about Coral Gables father George Merrick’s vision for City Hall among neighboring structures.

“The architecture [of City Hall] is inspired by the Renaissance using local stone,” explained Lopez. This derived from George Merrick’s overarching vision of importing the Mediterranean flair to a new Coral Gables. Just this summer, there was a study done to explore the possibility of expanding the civic program of City Hall to the surrounding areas, with architecture students from the University sent to sketch

developers are focused on other things besides very high level of architecture that give Coral Gables this unique character and value,” underscored Lopez. Surprisingly, the building has stood the test of time in that it has required limited if any restorative projects. “There’s unmistakable beauty to the architecture,” remarked Lopez when asked why it is important to honor City Hall in all its splendor. “Number one, it’s a beautiful building. The character of the building helps define the character of the city. And there’s real value to that.

“In today’s architectural circles we talk less about beauty and more about function. Coral Gables is a valuable place – why? Probably because of its architectural character and its landscape. Undoubtedly, the architecture of this historic building is a big part of what makes Coral Gables valuable in monetary terms. Because it’s a beautiful building, it helps make it a beautiful place,” said Lopez of City Hall’s significance. According to Lopez, the building is as architecturally sound as can be, with only minor renovations in recent memory—a statue of George Merrick on a pedestal erected in 2006, within a small triangular green space park with benches. The park is a public open gathering space. “This is also part of the value that this building gives to the city.” The building will make its presence known for an indefinite amount of time. “I think the building is well-maintained; and I don’t think it’s going anywhere any time soon.” Liz Kobak Liz Kobak is a freelance writer with bases in New York and Miami.

INDIVIDUAL ENERGY HEALING SESSIONS WITH PAULA PETRY, PHD Dr. Paula Petry combines her life experiences with her formal training in energy medicine, education, psychology, and the healing arts to help individuals optimize their health and well-being. She offers individual energy medicine sessions and workshops, as well as individual somatic therapy & coaching sessions to reduce stress, depression, anxiety and internal conflicts. In an initial energy medicine session, Dr. Petry first completes a standard intake process with you. This flows into a conversation about your expectations for the session(s) and in general what motivated you to seek assistance. Dr. Petry explains the general process, and you are given the opportunity to ask questions. Dr. Petry then begins an informal chat to help you identify the underlying emotional triggers that are diminishing your level of joyfulness and satisfaction with life. Early memories are identified that are connected to the emotional triggers. As your memories are activated, you identify where that emotion lives in the body, where you feel it, e.g., heart, stomach, head. If you have a generalized anxiety, you may feel it everywhere. The purpose of this process is to create an awareness of the emotional/behavioral pattern and to activate the negative/heavy energy in the body so it can be released through the healing process. NOTE: During non-local healings which are conducted over the phone or Skype, you can be lying down or sitting in a chair, while Dr. Petry, applying the principles of quantum physics, clears your biofield. You will then lie in a supine position on a massage table and further relax by visualizing a healing energy entering your body with each breath. Dr. Petry calls upon her and your spirit guides. She begins to enter non-ordinary time which facilitates her ability to ‘see’ your biofield and remove non-beneficial energies. Through the power of intention and spiritual assistance, heavy energies are lifted from the body through the chakra portals.This part of the session can Who Can Benefit? take from 20 to 60 minutes.

Skanska Completes Installation of 60,000-Pound Oculus at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science in Miami The Gulf Stream Aquarium at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is coming to life now that the Aquarium’s 31-foot wide, 13.5-inch thick, 60,000-pound oculus that will hold about 4 million pounds of seawater has been successfully installed. Skanska USA, the construction firm leading the project, spearheaded the installation of the colossal oculus lens, marking an important milestone for the science museum project as it nears completion. The oculus lens serves as the massive viewing portal into the Gulf Stream Aquarium, the centerpiece of the museum’s three-level Aquarium. The Gulf Stream Aquarium itself is a 100-foot wide, 500,000-gallon, coneshaped vessel with a corner-less design allowing open-water marine species such as tuna and sharks to swim continuously as they would in the actual Gulf Stream.

Getting the lens to the construction site was almost as difficult as installing it. The installation process began with securing a crane big enough to lift the oculus over 100 feet in the air, while monitoring weather conditions. Once Skanska had the oculus rigged and lifted, installers carefully guided it into place to guarantee optimum viewing for the museum’s visitors. “Looking up through the 30-foot oculus into the Gulf Stream Aquarium, visitors will have an immersive experience that takes them into the depths of the ocean. This habitat is now prepared to support over four million pounds of sea water and marine life,”

said Frank Steslow, Frost Science President. “This was a momentous construction milestone for the museum, which takes us one step closer to

the opening. I am incredibly thankful to the dedicated museum team, along with our partners at Skanska. Hill International, Acrylic Tank Manufacturing and Clax Italia for completing this incredible task.”   Getting the lens to the construction site was almost as difficult as installing it. The oculus was manufactured in Italy by Clax Italia, and shipped out from Livorno to the Port of Miami. Given that the total weight of the oculus and shipping cradle was 80,000 pounds, a unique motorized platform - similar to the ones NASA uses to move space shuttles – was used to transport the lens to the museum site in downtown Miami’s Museum Park. “Installing the oculus was one of the most technically challenging aspects of this project. The oculus is round and extremely heavy, making the crane and rigging logistics difficult. The oculus needed to be tilted to a 21-degree angle to match the precise angle of the opening and then, we needed to make sure it was placed and sealed properly to allow future

museum visitors to enjoy an optimum viewing experience,” explained Andy Allen, Project Executive for Skanska USA Building. “Our team has been planning this installation for over two years now and it is rewarding to see the results of all the planning become a reality as the oculus takes its place as the centerpiece of the museum.” Now that the oculus has been installed, the Skanska team will begin installing the silicone sealant that forms the final seal between the oculus and the fiber glass liner, which should take about three weeks to complete, followed by filling the Gulf Stream Aquarium with seawater. “With each and every construction milestone we achieve, we move closer to opening our doors to the community. We thank Miami-Dade County for their continued support and the residents for believing in this project,” Mr. Steslow added. “We hope Frost Science will inspire generations to visit and be the nucleus of science and technology within our community.”

Thousands of people are expected to attend the 60th Annual Living Nativity at Miami Shores Presbyterian Church on Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10, as the Church celebrates this milestone anniversary of presenting the Christmas story. The event is free and open to the public, and takes place on Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Miami Shores Presbyterian Church, 602 NE 96th Street, Miami Shores, FL 33138.

Unprecedented in scale throughout South Florida, the Living Nativity heralds the Christmas season with a live, open-air depiction of Christ’s birth, with more than 100 cast members, live camels, donkeys, goats and sheep. This spectacular representation of the Christmas narrative, complete with narration and a musical accompaniment, incorporates an elaborate, innovative compilation of audio-visual elements and a mix of digital and live-action characters, including Mary, Joseph,

Jesus, the prophets, angels, the Wise Men and more! “The Living Nativity is more than an event or a sight to see.  It is an experience that deepens the meaning and heightens the Spirit of Christmas,” said Rev. Dennis Andrews. “When it debuted in 1956, it attracted a few hundred people, mostly congregants and their friends and family. Last year, more than 2,000 people attended. Don’t miss it!” Throughout the evening, guests will have the opportunity to meander through the

church grounds, listening to and viewing depictions of various elements of the biblical story. Beginning with the prophets, mannequins appear with faces digitally projected onto them, giving the illusion of actual, live characters speaking to the spectators.  When the angel Gabriel appears to Mary, telling her that she will soon be pregnant, his image appears to float above her, making for a magically realistic experience.  The Living Nativity tour includes a large, true-to-life street

scene; a replica of what life was like at the time of Christ’s birth. Women may be seen preparing food or weaving cloth, children are playing games, animals traverse the scene, and jugglers walk among the crowd. The tour culminates inside the church, with instrumental holiday music. Guests are invited to bring canned goods, which will be donated to Pass it On Ministries, a local food bank.

Meeting the Needs of All Floridians Continued from page 1

on Access to Civil Justice. Q: Is the commission drawing on previous Access to Justice Commissions in any other state’s initiatives to assess the legal flaws facing low- and moderate-income Floridians? If so, how do their studies differ from what is currently happening in Florida? A: I am pleased to have the opportunity tell you about the Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice. The first Access to Justice Commission launched in Washington State in 1994, and there are now approximately 38 commissions across our nation. The experience of Access to Justice Commissions over the last two decades has been one of progress in the recognition of fundamental barriers to access to civil justice for low income and moderate income Americans, matched with significant efforts to break down those barriers. The Florida Commission, which was appointed/established on November 2014 and has met on a regular basis, has a head start in its search for solutions borrowed from those other commissions. Florida’s Access to Civil Justice Commission has the potential to make long-lasting, meaningful changes in our state’s civil justice system

Q: Will the recommendations pre s ent e d f rom their findings be expected to come under review for implementat ion within the coming year, or will the Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice need further steps to make their ideas concrete? A: This is a Supreme Court Commission, and the Court will be overseeing the actions and take into consideration any recommendations the Commission may make, regardless if the initiative is based from another state or created by the Florida Commission. The Court has been proactive in responding to the recommendations to make them and/or the ideas tangible. Within less than a year, the Commission has made recommendations to the court to implement access to justice initiates. These recommendations are in the interim report to the Court. Recently, the Commission in its June 30, 2016 Final Report recommended the establishment of a permanent Florida Commission on Access to

i m a i M e m i r P Properties le! Now Availab

Civil Justice. It is highly anticipated that the Court will be issuing an administrative order in response to this recom mend at ion very soon. Several of these recommendations are already moving forward for implementation. Q: What, if any, changes can residents expect to see which do not fall under the categories of low- and moderate-income from this commission’s finding? A: Bridging the legal access gap in Florida will be beneficial for Floridians who need to access the court. Selfrepresentation is not based on an individual’s economic status. The courts have always been open to all but not accessible to everyone. Access to civil justice is about one’s ability to access the courts to resolve a legal need. Implementation of access to justice initiatives for those with low and moderate income will also benefit all Floridians. I am optimistic about this opportunity to develop innovative and creative ways to further assist the many thousands of vulnerable and underserved

Floridians—children, elders, persons with disabilities, veterans, domestic violence victims, victims of human trafficking, limited English proficient persons, and others—who require access to the civil justice system to address their unique needs. Q: How does giving feedback on personal experience accessing civil court and self-help services in Florida help fix the problem? A: To properly implement access to civil justice initiatives, which will remove barriers that impede access, it is very important to hear from those who are accessing the court. With their feedback, the initiatives can be changed to drastically improve access to the civil court; there is always room for improvement. With this in mind, in 2016 the Commission developed a 36-question survey for pro se litigants to gather information about their experience(s) with the trial courts and self-help centers in each of Florida’s 67 counties. The survey was made available via the Commission’s website, on the Florida Courts’ website, on the Florida Bar’s website, and is anticipated to be made available on the websites of the circuit clerk of courts.

Cuban Female Artists are Showcased in the Lowe’s Exhibition,

“UNCONSCIOUS THOUGHTS ANIMATE THE WORLD” WORKS BY TEN OF CUBA’S FOREMOST FEMALE ARTISTS EXPLORE THE NATION’S COLLECTIVE IDENTITY, AND WILL BE ON VIEW THROUGH MAY 7, 2017 The Lowe Art Museum unveiled a collection of works by ten foremost Cuban female artists on November 3, 2016. Titled Unconscious Thoughts Animate the World: Selections from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition comprises thirty works that span the last five decades of Cuban history and communicate the island-nation’s cultural heritage, as well as notions of collective and individual identity. Since the founding in 1961 of Cuba’s National Art Schools (Escuelas Nacionales de Arte, now known as the Instituto Superior de Arte or ISA)—whose objective was to establish educational equality that profoundly affected women in the arts—female Cuban artists are routinely recognized for their work, both nationally and internationally. The Shelley and Donald Rubin Private

Collection of Cuban Art includes works by many of the country’s most prominent female artists and represents a wide range of media and genres. The ten artists whose work is included in Unconscious Thoughts Animate the World invite us to think critically about feminine identity and accepted power structures by addressing the cultural, psychological, sociological, and anthropological aspects of the female condition. While Antonia Eiriz and Sandra Ceballos represent the flaws and contradictions inherent in Cuba’s political system, Cirenaica Moreira and Aimée García engage with and challenge traditional female stereotypes. Similarly, Belkis Ayón and María Magdalena Campos-Pons address the complexities of race and gender through their explorations of Afro-Cuban religions. Rocío García, on the other hand, explores

society’s sexual norms, while Sandra Ramos bears witness to key moments in Cuban history. “These incredible works will bring the South Florida community and Art Basel enthusiasts an enriching experience that reflects a cornerstone of the Lowe’s vision: to inspire, dazzle, and provoke curiosity among its visitors,” comments Jill Deupi, Beaux Arts Director and Chief Curator of the Lowe. “I am excited to showcase these extraordinary works that highlight Cuba’s rich and complex cultural heritage as expressed by these outstanding artists.” The Lowe Art Museum ( is located on the campus of the University of Miami at 1301 Stanford Drive, Coral Gables, Florida.

Art of Transformation “Say It Loud” Series Re-Images Blackness in America The 5th Annual Art of Transformation Series (AOT), which includes an exhibition and related programming presented by the Opa-locka Community Development Corporation, is a celebration of Opa-locka’s revitalization through the arts. The “SAY IT LOUD!” exhibit opens on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at The ARC (675 Ali Baba Avenue, Opa-locka, FL 33054), 6:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. Opening Preview is free and open to the public, featuring a curator and artist-led tour of the exhibition at 7:30 p.m., live music, light bites from Opa-locka restaurants and open bar with RSVP at www.aot2016opening. Curated by Tumelo Mosaka, the AOT series is themed “SAY IT LOUD!” and will feature work by prominent contemporary artists Michael Paul Britto, Myra Greene, Joshua R. McFadden, Mario Pfeifer and Roberto Visani, and films

by Bhawin Suchak & Ira McKinley and Stanley Nelson. “SAY IT LOUD!” is inspired by the James Brown song of the same name that addresses racial discrimination and calls for black empowerment. The call in this context is a rallying cry for all to mobilize against injustice and discrimination, as well as embrace black culture pride in the United States and African Diaspora. The artists explore a range of experiences that not only address the re-imagination and representation of blackness, but also examine the fear, trauma, and grief transpiring in black communities. Exhibition Dates/Hours: November 10, 2016 to January 22, 2017, Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Closed on holidays. Please email to arrange special visits (group tours, weekend or evening viewings). For more information, visit www.

A check for $1,000 is presented to Lighthouse of Broward [Photo courtesy of Kimberly Rodriguez]

ABB OPTICAL GROUP, one of the nation’s leading distributors of optical products, is pleased to announce that Lighthouse of Broward will receive a $1,000 grant through the company’s third annual ABB Cares program, which recognizes and celebrates outstanding non-profit organizations throughout the country. Nominated by local optometrist Robin Shorrock, O.D. of East Side Vision Center, Lighthouse of Broward strives to provide specialized rehabilitation and healthcare solutions that enhance independence and productivity of children and adults who are blind or visually impaired. The ABB Cares grant will fund professional staff who offer direct services to clients that enable them to be fully a part of their families, schools, work and communities. “I have been involved with the organization for 10 years and I have seen firsthand the difference they make,” said Dr. Shorrock, who has been on the Board of Directors for 10 years. “What may seem like an everyday activity is a major obstacle for someone visually impaired. Lighthouse of Broward helps patients overcome these difficulties and is truly a beacon of hope for those who need it most.” Since 1973, Lighthouse of Broward has grown from a small, local group of volunteers and professionals to an accredited, full service educational and rehabilitation agency. Every day the staff are dedicated to enhancing the independence and quality of life for children and adults who are blind or visually impaired.

“Direct services are provided through three distinct children’s programs and three adult programs,” said Dr. Shorrock. “The professional staff provide specific training for daily living activities such as household chores, safe travel skills, use of technology and job seeking skills. The goal is to provide them the tools to help them live a normal, productive life.” The ABB Cares program recognizes charities that have been nominated by eye care professionals across the country for exceptional programming and community impact. Other 2016 grant recipients are: Addi’s Faith Foundation in Kingwood, Texas; Project Wee Care in Omaha, Neb.; Bobcat Backpacks Program in Radford, Va.; All God’s People in Orland Park, Ill.; Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque in Dubuque, Iowa; and Los Alamitos Youth Center in Los Alamitos, Calif. “The staff and volunteers of Lighthouse of Broward are dedicated and passionate. They provide invaluable services and care to the local community,” said Brad Weinbrum, president of ABB OPTICAL GROUP. “We applaud the work that they do and we thank Dr. Shorrock for bringing them to our attention. ABB Cares is all about honoring those organizations, like Lighthouse of Broward, that have a positive impact on those who need it most.” For more information about Lighthouse of Broward, contact Elly du Pré at or call (954) 463-4217.
