Gloria Estefan has donated $500,000 to restore the Miami Marine Stadium. The stadium was closed down following the damage of Hurricane Andrew in 1992. The fundraising group Friends of Miami Marine Stadium hopes to raise $30 million by January 2015 to restore the stadium, and Estefan is hoping her donation will inspire others to help. The venue is special to Estefan; she remembers playing at the stadium in the mid 80’s with Miami Sound Machine after Dr. Beat became a hit. Also, the stadium was built by the Cuban-American architect Hilario Candela, and as a trustee for the National Trust for Historical Preservation, Estefan considers it an important building to Miami’s cultural landscape. “It’s almost a symbol of our community and how much we’re a part of Miami.”
