The movie will be shown on a portable 2-story movie screen with stereo sound that is transmitted through your FM radio. This is going to be a movie night under the stars you won’t want to miss!

Reserve your spot today at Hurry, free parking space is limited. Thereafter, you can buy spots for a reasonable fee. There are the usual movie refreshments also available for purchase. For information, contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 305-259-1234.

Sing along to Grease at Palmetto Bay’s Drive-In Night.

In 2004 Palmetto Middle School student Michael Grey started a poker tournament to raise money for wheelchair repairs. In 2010, the Morrison brothers (Brian, 17 and Jay, 15) took over. This year, the Lehman brothers (Max, 16 and Jesse, 13) are joining them to run the 12th CCDH poker tournament, which has grown to more than 100 participants annually.

On February 7th, come join this worthy local charity event. Congregation Bet Shira (SW 120th Street and 77th Avenue) hosts the 3-hour Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament beginning at 12:30 p.m. Entry costs $20 (though many contribute more) to try your luck, but more importantly to support the boys in their quest to help wheelchair bound individuals. All student players and volunteers receive credit for 4 hours of community service.

During the event, there will be free food and drink, raffles and lots of good conversation. Players ages 10 and up are welcome to test their luck to win an HDTV. Volunteers of all ages make sure this is an event everyone can enjoy.

Through the years, Martin Berger has provided the poker chips, Congregation Bet Shira donates their venue and the Morrison (and now) Lehman families volunteer food, drink, time and effort to making this a special day.

Since 1975, CCDH has been Miami-Dade County’s leading agency to plan, provide, coordinate, and arrange services for individuals with disabilities and their families. Last year more than $4600 was raised. With your help, more will be donated this year. For event information or to volunteer call/text Brian Morrison at 305-613-2069 or Max Lehman at 786-558-6741.
