MIAMI GARDENS, Fla., Aug. 24, 2023 – The Orange Blossom Classic Committee proudly heralds the return of Wells Fargo as the Official Bank Sponsor of the highly anticipated Denny’s Orange Blossom Classic presented by Ready Life (OBC). This partnership is marked by the unveiling of an exclusive limited-edition OBC HBCU Legends debit card, a testament to Wells Fargo’s commitment to financial education within the community.

Honoring Legacy Through Artistry

Crafted with meticulous attention, this debit card serves as a tribute to the cherished HBCU Reunion Experience at the Orange Blossom Classic.

“Dewey Norwood, Senior Diversity & Inclusion Consultant at Wells Fargo, shared his enthusiasm, stating, “Wells Fargo is excited to continue our relationship with the OBC. We’re looking forward to including OBC in our HBCU Legends Collection to allow Wells Fargo customers to express their passion for the OBC and HBCUs overall. We’ll also have leaders in the Miami market available to engage with students, alumni, and fans during Labor Day weekend at various OBC events.”
Empowering Diversity and Leadership
Partially supported by Wells Fargo, the Elevation Experience presented by Visit Lauderdale, a diversity and inclusion initiative focused on women in leadership and entrepreneurship, has been a transformative journey leading up to the OBC showdown between Florida A&M University (FAMU) and Jackson State University (JSU).

This commitment resonates with the celebration of financial empowerment.
