Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Giselle Bundchen, these three ladies are among the many household names that have become icons in the world of modeling and fashion. They’ve appeared on numerous runways and major publications and chances are they’ve probably visited South Beach on more than one occasion.
This weekend, a fusion of fashion and sports will be happening right here in South Beach at the seventh annual Model Beach Volleyball Tournament. The two-day event begins this Saturday and will feature models from some of the most widely respected agencies in the world including Elite Model Management, Ford Models, and Wilhelmina Models competing in a co-ed team tournament against some of the top volleyball players in the world. The event will culminate with a single elimination tournament on Sunday with the winning team receiving a complimentary trip to a yet to be determined destination.
The Model Beach Volleyball Tournament will be hosted by online personality Julz Goddard (commonly known as YesJulz) as well as Christmas Abbott and Kenny Santucci. Abbott has already made her mark in history as the first woman to ever become a NASCAR pit crew member while Santucci is best known for his many appearances as a cast member of MTV’s Real World/Road Rules Challenge.
Model Beach Volleyball Tournament is free to the public and it begins at 9 am at Lummus Park continuing until 5 pm. Lummus Park is barely a ten-minute walk from Z Ocean Hotel South Beach which has 79 luxuriously appointed Miami Beach hotel suites to choose from.
