SCOTTSDALE'S 74TH STREET TO ALSO BE KNOWN AS "DOROTHY HAMILL LOOP"
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Officials from Dorothy Hamill International and the city of Scottsdale, including Olympic and world figure skating champion Dorothy Hamill and Mayor Herb Drinkwater, will participate in a street dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 10, in which 74th Street within the Scottsdale Airpark will also be named "Dorothy Hamill Loop." Dorothy Hamill Loop/74th Street, which is 1/2 mile long, is cul-de- sacced on both its north and south ends and is intersected by Butherus Drive within the Scottsdale Airpark. The street dedication and ribbon cutting will take place at Hamill's international headquarters building, located at 15021 N. 74th St. A vanity sign plate ("Dorothy Hamill Loop") will accompany the 74th Street sign at its intersection with Butherus beginning Nov. 11. "We're thrilled to have the Dorothy Hamill International headquarters located in America's most livable city," Drinkwater said. "Dorothy's Olympic and professional figure skating feats have delighted the world for nearly two decades. We commend her for serving as a positive role model for kids and for bringing spectacular shows, such as Dorothy Hamill's Ice Capades, to our valley." Dorothy Hamill International was formed in June 1993 after Hamill acquired the Ice Capades. One of Hamill's first moves was to relocate her headquarters from Hollywood, Calif., to Scottsdale. She also recently converted a Scottsdale-Airport hanger, which is only 100 yards from her headquarters, into a fully-operational practice ice rink. Hamill was voted "America's Most Beloved Athlete," according to a May 1993 survey conducted by Sports Marketing Group of Dallas. Dorothy Hamill's Ice Capades will present "Cinderella Frozen in Time" Nov. 12-14 at America West Arena in Phoenix. For tickets, the public can call 800-789-CAPADES. -0- 11/10/93 /CONTACT: Debbie Salem, Dorothy Hamill International, 602-996-1976/
