According to the latest newsletter from the Friends of Miami Marine Stadium, Gloria Estefan, a Grammy winning crossover artist and leading Miami businesswoman, will take a prominent role in the ongoing advocacy campaign to restore the iconic Miami Marine Stadium as a centerpiece of cultural life in Miami. Estefan, a Trustee of the National Trust for Historic Preservation since 2012, will serve as the voice of efforts to preserve Miami Marine Stadium at a time when the Miami City Commission is weighing approval of a new site plan for the stadium.
Estefan agreed to lend her support to the National Trust and Friends of Miami Marine Stadium’s ongoing efforts by appearing in public service announcements, sharing information about the campaign with her friends and followers on social media, and appearing in print and video materials supporting the stadium’s restoration.
“Miami Marine Stadium is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind place and I am thrilled to join the National Trust and Friends of Miami Marine Stadium to help restore it to its former glory,” Estefan said. “As someone who once had the honor of performing at the stadium, I can attest to the fact that it is a completely unique place, and I know thousands of Miami residents feel the same kind of personal connection to the stadium.”
On April 24, Estefan participated in a photo shoot at the Miami Marine Stadium with renowned Miami artist and photographer Carlos Betancourt, who is also on the Advisory Board of Friends of Miami Marine Stadium.
