Come savor the flavors of South Florida at the OBIEs Food & Wine event, this Friday May 20th featuring unlimited samplings from over 30 of South Florida's top restaurants and food purveyors and an open bar. Every guest will also receive a complimentary gift bag!

James Beard Award-winning chef/restaurateur Michael Schwartz will headline as the Celebrity Chef for this year’s Orange Bowl Impact and Excellence Awards (The OBIEs): A Taste of South Florida presented by Florida Blue, and healthy lifestyle crusader, author and James Beard Award-winning chef, Rocco DiSpirito, will make a celebrity chef guest appearance at the 2016 OBIES at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Chefs and restaurants from all over the South Florida area will be serving 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. At this year’s event, approximately $100,000 will be given back to the South Florida community. Proceeds from The OBIEs: A Taste of South Florida presented by Florida Blue will go toward Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, Special Olympics Florida and the Orange Bowl Leadership Academy.
