WELCOME MASTER OF CEREMONIES
METEOROLOGIST / ABC's LOCAL 10 MORNING NEWS
AIDS Walk Miami and Care Resource wish to
announce and welcome Scott
as the Official Master of Ceremonies for the 24th Annual AIDS
Walk Miami fundraiser scheduled for Sunday, April 22nd.
Scott joined Local 10's weather team in April 2008. Like many
meteorologists, Scott's interest in weather started at an early age. He
still remembers watching thunderstorms near his home with amazement at
the force of the wind and the intensity of the lightning. His
fascination led to him studying meteorology at Western Illinois
University, where he graduated with a bachelor of science in
meteorology and a double minor in broadcasting and math.
Scott is both a member of the National Weather Association and the
American Meteorological Society. In 2006, he was awarded the Seal of
Approval of the American Meteorological Society. During his free time,
you can find Scott walking his Shih Tzu, Chloe, or behind his camera
continuing his love of photography. Working out is also something he
likes to do during his free time and hope that it will pay off with his
new found hobby, going to the beach.
Scott has a love of adventure and is looking forward to traveling all
across South Florida, eating the local cuisine and visiting with South
Floridians. He looks forward to greeting viewers on The Local News
mornings between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. and around town. If you see him,
don't hesitate to stop and say hello.

WELCOME MIAMI GAY MEN'S CHORUS
TO THE OPENING CEREMONIES OF AIDS WALK MIAMI
wishes to welcome back the Miami Gay Men's Chorus to the opening
ceremonies of the 24th Annual AIDS Walk Miami.
Originally founded as the South Beach Gay Men's Chorus in 1999, the
Miami Gay Men's Chorus is an inclusive, community based organization of
gay men and supporting individuals that inspire and change lives
through the power of music.
Grown from 6 members to a group of more than 70, with members from as
far away as Florida City and North Broward County, the Miami Gay Men's
Chorus sing in complex rhythms and multiple harmonies and represent a
broad cross-section of the gay community ethnically and professionally.
Now in their 14th season, The Miami Gay Men’s Chorus is proud to once
again be part of the opening ceremonies of AIDS Walk Miami. On April
28th, find the Miami Gay Men's Chorus in their production of: "Insignia
Concert: New World Waking, A Call for Compassion" by Steve Schalchlin
at the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center in Aventura, Fl.
IMAGINE all the people living life in peace. Bullying, gay bashing,
self-hatred, trans-phobia, violence at home. On a wider scale, war in
the name of money, power, a higher power. Will it always be like
this? Music can cross all boundaries, all customs, all languages and
all creeds. This is a journey to find a song of perfect peace. This
peace found through the hands of caregivers, the restorers of life;
through community; through the power of music.
New World Waking! is a song cycle by Steve Schalchlin, inspired by an
opportunity to play John Lennon’s IMAGINE piano. Through this
journey - styled in pop, salsa, gospel and lowdown dirty blues -
Schalchlin brings us to the realization that we have the power to
effect change and that we are not alone in our desire and ability to do

EDUCATING HANDS SCHOOL OF MASSAGE
THE WAY YOU FEEL AFTER THE WALK
Care Resource wishes to
welcome back Educating
to the 24th Annual AIDS
Walk Miami post-walk celebration at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens.
Educating Hands teaches that touch, the most basic form of
communication between humans, can provide nurturing and caring support,
rehabilitation from illness and injury and a sense of personal esteem
Massage Therapy, by nature a "touch" profession, brings to our modern
society a positive option to the distance and separateness inherent in
its cultural framework. Their mission has therefore been established to
support the personal and professional growth and wellness of each
person who chooses massage or other natural healing options to benefit
themselves and/or others, to teach the knowledge, skills and abilities
to successfully enter the massage profession while providing an
atmosphere that supports the personal development of each student, to
increase public awareness of massage as a profession and as a wellness
promoting therapy and to actively participate in and support
humanitarian causes through community service and volunteer efforts.
Be sure to stop by and visit the students from Educating Hands School
of Massage on your return to the Botanical Gardens after the walk to
receive a great massage. Please don't forget to thank them for all
their wonderful support!
WELCOME PALACE BAR
WATER STOP SPONSOR
FOR AIDS WALK MIAMI
Care Resource wishes to welcome back the Palace Bar on South Beach as
one of the official water stops along the route of the 24th Annual AIDS
Now in its 24th year as well, the Palace is the first and only gay
restaurant/bar on Ocean Drive. Located at 1200 Ocean Drive in the heart
of the Art Deco District, Palace has entertained countless men and
women for decades.
The Palace commissioned the creation of a Rainbow Pride flag, which was
presented to the City of Miami Beach GLBT Business Enhancement
Committee last year. The 50-pound flag, measuring 20 feet by 80 feet,
will be made available for use by other organizations, including Miami
Beach Gay Pride, of which Palace continues to play as a major sponsor.
The Miami Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce will house the
flag in its Visitors Center.
Palace’s legacy of infamous weekend drag shows, Sunday “Brunchic,”
luscious libations and mouth-watering burgers prevails today. Whether
gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual or straight, it is the place to be
on South Beach. For great times and great food, stop by the Palace on
your next trip to South Beach. For additional information, visit www.palacesouthbeach.com
