Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood’s Guitar-Shaped Hotel Tower

In 2018, we had the pleasure of assisting with the construction of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood’s prodigious new guitar-shaped hotel tower. The striking hotel tower is located off of Florida’s Turnpike in Hollywood, Florida.

The hotel is the centerpiece of a 1.5 billion dollar complex underway at the tribe’s flagship Hollywood property, according to an article published in the Miami Herald. The hotel is expected to open this Fall and will feature 806 hotel rooms, a 10-acre lagoon-style pool, 30 restaurants/lounges/bars, an event venue, retail space, an expansive casino, meeting/convention space and more.

The massive project supported about 2,000 construction jobs and the hotel is expected to create 2,000 permanent jobs, according to James Allen, CEO of Seminole Gaming and chairman of Hard Rock International, as quoted in the article.

Diabetes is a horrible disease that affects millions around the world. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in the U.S. alone, there are 29.1 million people who suffer from this illness. That comes out to be about one person out of every 11. Every day, almost 5,000 people learn they have diabetes. Even worse, one out of every four of those who do have diabetes do not know they have it, which means the disease is advancing very quickly.

Another 86 million people in the U.S. have pre-diabetes, which could develop into full diabetes within five years if they don’t change their diet and activity level.

The disease can increase the risk of a number of different health complications:

  • Blindness
  • Loss of legs, feet, or toes
  • Kidney failure
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease

Those who don’t realize they have diabetes or aren’t managing it correctly may also fall into a diabetic coma, which can result in death.

What Can You Do About It?

Diabetes claims the lives of thousands of people every year and leaves many more in pain or unable to work. Here at Superior Rigging and Erecting Co., a number of our team members have loved ones who are dealing with diabetes every day. We see them dealing with everything this illness brings with it: the many doctor’s appointments, the shots and other medication, and the concern that their condition may get worse.

We want to see this disease eradicated now so that our friends and family members no longer have to suffer. To that end, we are partnering with the American Diabetes Association to raise money for diabetes research and are participating in the OUC Orlando Half Marathon & Track Shack Lake Eola 5K. This event will be held on December 2, 2017.

It may be months before the actual run, but we want to get a head start on raising pledges for the ADA. You can join our team and participate if you’re local, and if you’re not, you can support us by making a donation via our team page.

Join our team and make a donation at: http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR?team_id=738865&fr_id=11965&pg=team

Sign up for the race here:

We hope you’ll join us in December in supporting the ADA and their goal of defeating diabetes through research and education. Please invite your friends and family members to the event and share our team page. With your support, we can truly make a difference and change the lives of those who are dealing with diabetes every day. Together, we can do it!
