Oviedo To Celebrate Top Ten Award On July 31
July 19, 2011
Oviedo, FL – Oviedo’s top-notch schools, affordable housing, green-space amenities, income profile, and philanthropic spirit caught the attention of more than five million readers of Family Circle magazine. City officials are thrilled to announce that the magazine has named Oviedo among its Top Ten Best Family-Friendly Cities in the country in which to live. Mayor Dominic Persampiere, City Council members, the Oviedo Mall, and the community’s premier local magazine, Oviedo-Winter Springs Life joined to mark this occasion in grand style.
Mayor Dominic Persampiere, the entire City Council, and Oviedo Mall management are stepping up to make this a city-wide celebration worthy of this national praise. Families, business owners, and community organizations are invited to the food court area inside the Mall on Sunday, July 31 at 5:00 p.m. for great food, fun, and entertainment, along with the chance to stake a claim in the community archives. Anyone who has ever aspired to be featured in Oviedo-Winter Springs Life will have that opportunity when the magazine gathers all attendees of this event in the food court area for a commemorative poster-size photo for the September/October issue cover.
“We are so excited to be part of this event and so grateful the Mall has agreed to be the host location. It’s the perfect venue to shoot such a large gathering for our fold-out cover,” says Mary Pando, OWSL publisher. “This has the potential to be our most dynamic cover ever. Oviedo’s recognition of being a Top Ten Family-Friendly City in America comes as no surprise to our community and we want to celebrate it with our nearly 30,000 readers. We hope this cover makes an appropriate keepsake for this honor. In addition, the event promises to be a fun and festive way to gather everyone for a wonderful party.”
