Senior Idol Competition Draws Large Crowd
On May 11, 2013, Mayor Abrams was one of the presenters of the winner’s check at the 8th Annual Tri-Rail Senior Idol Competition held at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek.
The competition is part of Tri-Rail’s ongoing commitment to seniors in the community who use Tri-Rail as a vital transportation option. To compete, all performers had to be 65 years of age and older and residents of Palm Beach, Broward, or Miami-Dade counties. Winners were chosen based on talent, style and stage presence.
Over the past eight years, the competition has touched more than 1,200 seniors who now recognize Tri-Rail as a resource they can rely on. Event sponsors included Boomer Times, HearUSA, Holy Cross Hospital, John Know Village and Seminole Casino Hotel. Over 1,000 fans attended the event that raised nearly $1,000 for Broward Meals on Wheels.
Tony Mazza, of Deerfield Beach, was the winner of the 2013 Senior Idol with his performance of the song, “Delila,” winning the grand prize of $500 and a pass to ride Tri-Rail for one year.
