Olympic Gold Medal night in Coconut Grove
Liljedahl, who won the Gold Medal at the Sydney games, overcame many obstacles in his drive to achieve greatness in his sport. His appearance will enlighten young athletes and others who have talents outside of school and need to know how to balance education and the demands of their passions. The open house is ideal for student athletes, and students who are pursuing other activities like acting or the performing arts but desire a high-quality education.
After the talks by the Olympic team, prizes including a $500 Sail Laser Summer Camp award and $500 MCA Tuition Vouchers will be given away at a reception that also includes music, refreshments and raffle prizes for sailing gear. The US Sailing Team and the Olympic Sailors will mingle and talk with guests at the party. A 14-foot Sail Laser Olympic boat will be on display.
The event is free and open to everyone. It will start at 5 pm at MCA Academy at 2911 Grand Avenue, back by the fountain, off of Florida Avenue.
