Miami Dade College’s Freedom Tower Will be Illuminated “White Hot” for the Miami HEAT May 30
Miami, May 29, 2012 -
Miami Dade College’s (MDC) National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower will glow “white hot” the evening of Wednesday, May 30, in support of the 2012 Miami HEAT Playoff run.
The Freedom Tower will be illuminated in a special pre-game “White Hot” lighting ceremony to encourage other building owners to do the same. The White Hot campaign started during the team’s last championship run in 2006. MDC President Dr. Eduardo Padrón and HEAT Legend Alonzo Mourning will “flip” an oversized light switch at 8 p.m. outside of the Arena by Gate 1 before the HEAT takes on the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The college will continue lighting the Freedom Tower in white for home playoff games.
