On December 20th, 2016, Acordis hosted their VIP Suite Night at the AmericanAirlines Arena for the Heat vs Magic game. It has become a Holiday tradition for Acordis to welcome a group of clients and partners as a token of appreciation to the “Holiday” Suite for them to enjoy the game, delicious food and drinks, and all the perks that come along with watching the game from the Dewar’s Suite Level at the Arena.
It was an exhilarating game; just perfect for this time of the year, an ideal gift to the guests who attended the suite. Even though the Heat lost 136-130, the game was an amazing extended show that went to double-overtime. It wasn’t enough for Johnson to have a career-high 32 points, nor an injured Whiteside’s 32 points career-high for the Heat to overcome the Magic, who at the end took the victory.
The Heat will play the LA Lakers next at home on December 22nd, 2016. This night will be an special night for all Shaquille O’neal fans. It will be a night dedicated to Shaq’s Jersey retirement.

“The Dade Schools Athletic Foundation is a 501(c)3 created in 1994 through the Miami Dade County School Board to allow the private sector to support and augment the athletic programs in the Miami-Dade County Public School system. Miami-Dade schools operate their athletic programs with very few actual tax dollars with the majority of funds being raised by the principals, athletic directors and coaches. Every school has been forced to eliminate programs and severely restrict the number of students who can participate in athletics at every level.”
