O,R&L Facility Services Teams Up With Winning Ways to Sponsor the 2nd Annual Rising Stars Basketball Clinic

Winter Park, Fla. – O,R&L Facility Services is teaming up with Winning Ways International, a Central Florida-based basketball program, to sponsor the 2nd annual “Rising Stars Basketball Clinic” on August 3-4 at the Winter Park Community Center. The free camp will serve nearly 300 Central Florida residents ages 8-18 — focusing on life skills and teamwork.

In 2010, O,R&L Facility Services hosted a free youth basketball clinic with Winning Ways in the Parramore area. “We recognize that today’s young people are tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and business leaders, which is why we invest in programs like the ‘Rising Stars Basketball Clinic,’” said Bob Owens, President/CEO of O,R&L Facility Services. Winning Ways basketball programs teach more than just athletic technique.

With nearly 30 years of experience, Barry Mestel, president and CEO, takes participants “from the backboard to the boardroom” by relating on-court techniques to off-court life skills. Attendees will learn about nutrition, teamwork, facing adversity and the importance of academic excellence. “O,R&L Facility Services saw the need for our program in the Central area and called on us to help,” said Mestel. “We are fortunate to partner with them and are confident that our program will have a positive impact on these children. The event aims to attract a diverse group of students from a variety of backgrounds.

Open spots are still available. Interested participants can pick up a registration form at the Winter Park Community Center or contact Krissie D’Abate at kdabate@OR-L.com or 407.681.2000 ext. 232.
