For over 3 decades the “Sand In My Shoes” award has been Miami’s highest civic honor given to a community leader by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. Miami’s Multivision Video and film has produced the centerpiece video for this gala event ever since the beginning.
This year was no exception; and on Feb 13th over 850 civic and community leaders honored a man who exemplifies what the award is all about. “Tony Argiz is what Damon Runyon was talking about when he coined the phrase that has become the awards namesake”, says Multivision’s Bob Berkowitz. “ We are so pleased to have helped honor Tony and to continue the Sand in My Shoes tradition.”
Once again, the evening began with a video narrated by the late WTVJ Newscaster Ralph Rennick who came into the Multivision studios in 1981 and recorded the Runyon letter that started it all.
With Mistress of Ceremony Ana Navarro fabulous Piano virtuoso Chucho Valdes and a heartfelt speech by the honoree-it was a memorable event for all who attended.
“Its great being part of history- and Tony is one of the best people the Chamber could have ever picked for this award and we so much enjoyed capturing his spirit, generosity and Love of Miami for all to see”.
