Celebration: The Pineapple Jam hosted by Bob and Sandy Moss of Moss & Associates

On Friday, April 11th, the Historic Stranahan House Museum will celebrate the museum’s 30th anniversary as a history museum in Fort Lauderdale at the Annual Pineapple Jam Dinner and Auction. The event will be hosted by Bob and Sandy Moss, community leaders and founding family of Moss & Associates, who will also be celebrating a milestone of their own – their 44th wedding anniversary. The evening begins at 6 pm with a cocktail reception featuring live music, a silent auction, and historic house tours with docents dressed at Frank and Ivy Stranahan House. Dinner will be served at 7:30 pm under a grand tent overlooking the New River.

Event Co-Chairs Debra Vogel, of Wells Fargo, and Pat Kublin, of AutoNation, have spearheaded the efforts on behalf of the Board of Directors to celebrate the museum’s history while raising much needed funds to preserve the historic structure and expand the educational programs. “We are honored to have Bob and Sandy Moss celebrate an important milestone with us,” shared Vogel. “Their passion for our community and the Stranahan House has helped to lead the charge for this great event! We are grateful they have encouraged so many of their friends and business associates to rally around this important historic site.”

“This is an evening like no other,” agreed Kublin. “This will be a beautiful night along the New River celebrating our history with fine food, fellowship, and raising funds for the Stranahan House.”

The highlight of the evening will include a live auction during the sit down dinner featuring a special vacation package donated by Silversea Cruises and Landmark Travel – a 9 day cruise aboard the luxurious Silver Spirit From Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy to Barcelona, Spain on October 31, 2014. Silversea Cruises Silver Spirit carries a maximum of 540 on a vacation like no other. With six dining venues, an 8,300 square foot spa, resort-style pool, and largest suites in the Silverseas suites – 95% with private verandas. Valued at $8,300, 100% of the auction proceeds from this item will further the Historic Stranahan House Museum’s mission.

Other live auction items include an exclusive fishing excursion on Bob Moss’ private boat, a weeklong stay at a private Keys home, an original Florida landscape painting by Tim Forman, a $1,000 gift certificate to John Paul Jewelers, and a private party at Hugh’s Culinary. Hugh’s Culinary will also be serving up the evening’s delicious meal and signature drink “Jammin’ Juice” mixed with Tito’s Vodka.

Wecando Print becomes an Official Sponsor of The Miami Dolphins Touchdown Club

Touchdown Header Wecando Print becomes an Official Sponsor of The Miami Dolphins Touchdown Club

Wecando Print joined the Miami Dolphins Touchdown Club in 2013 and has become an official sponsor for the 2014 Miami Dolphins Season.



Wecando Print is a full service branding company established in 2003. They specialize in printing, promotional products, embroidery, screen printing, banners, fulfillment services and company stores. Wecando Print is headquartered in Broward County, but imports and exports products all over the World.

Nick Mandich, COO of the Dolphins Touchdown Club says, “Wecando Print attended our luncheon a couple times, with guests from several other companies each time, and then joined us in Tampa for the Monday Night Football game, Dolphins vs. Buccaneers. We saw that there was a great fit between our organizations. We are looking forward to building equally strong relationships with Wecando’s other clients and partners as well.”

Tom Letourneau, Wecando Print’s President commented, “Our relationship with the Miami Dolphins has been a great success right from the start. All aspects of our relationship with the Dolphin’s Organization; entertaining existing clients in our suite, sharing the Dolphins Business Alliance experience with clients and new prospects and participating in the Dolphins Cycling Challenge have been personally and professionally successful. That coupled with the great business contacts and friends we have made through these experiences drove us to want to become a stronger member of the Dolphin’s family.

When the Dolphins Business Alliance Director, Patrick Sullivan, suggested we meet Nick and see what the Touchdown Club was like, we knew instantly that it would be just as beneficial as the rest of the Dolphins experiences and we are not disappointed.

We love the lunches and the chance to meet childhood heroes like Bob Greise, Don Shula, Mercury Morris, Kim Bokamper, Joe Rose and more. The Monday Night Game was a great networking event and a great time in spite of the final score. We are looking forward to participating in the fishing and golf tournaments and other Miami Dolphin Touchdown Club sponsored events. I really want to thank Patrick Sullivan for showing us the way to the Dolphins Touchdown Club and thank you, Nick Mandich, for being such a welcoming host.”

TrafficLogo Strikers Announce Pursuit of Soccer Specific Stadium
Soccer Industry Veteran Tom Mulroy Named Team President with Tim Robbie Turning Focus to Team Personnel and Stadium Development


Strikers primary outline Strikers Announce Pursuit of Soccer Specific Stadium FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Dec. 4, 2012) – Traffic Sports, the ownership group of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, has appointed Tim Robbie to the position of Managing Director of Team Personnel and Stadium Development with the task of securing a long-term home at a soccer-specific stadium in South Florida. Assuming the position of Team President will be Tom Mulroy, an industry veteran with ties to the South Florida soccer community reaching back more than 35 years.

“The success of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers requires a facility which enables the team to give the fans, sponsors and media the experience they expect in professional sports today,” said Aaron Davidson, President of Traffic Sports USA. “With the growth of the NASL and the majority of teams building, planning or recently completing expansions or renovations, adding Tom [Mulroy] to allow Tim [Robbie] to focus on this crucial phase was a natural and necessary step to ensure the Strikers achieve this goal.”

“Traffic Sports has given me a mandate to seek a permanent, first class home for the Strikers,” said Tim Robbie. “Our top priority is to work with the city of Fort Lauderdale to renovate Lockhart Stadium as part of the overall development of the area. However, we are prepared to explore any and all options for a new soccer facility in the South Florida area. Given the numerous meetings and conversations I have had on the matter, I am optimistic our efforts to find a worthy, long-term home for the Strikers will be successful.”

“It’s an honor to serve as the president of one of the most historic soccer franchises in America,” said Tom Mulroy. “It’s very exciting to become president of the club with the growth of the NASL and to have the opportunity to work side by side with Tim Robbie to fulfill this commitment of establishing a permanent home stadium for the Strikers. I am thrilled to be part of it all.”

Robbie has served as president of the Strikers since 2011, when the team tripled its average attendance from the previous year and ended the season as runners-up in the NASL Championship Series. In 1987, Robbie’s father, Joe Robbie, secured 115 million dollars in private financing to build the current home of the Miami Dolphins, Sun Life Stadium. Tim Robbie served as President of the Miami Dolphins from 1990-94 and will bring that experience to his new position within the Strikers organization.

Tom Mulroy has been with Traffic Sports since 2009 when he was hired to lead its grassroots and sponsorship activation division. This included Traffic assuming joint ownership of Copa Latina and Fiesta Cup, two of the leading Hispanic soccer tournaments in the country, which Mulroy founded more than 20 years ago. tom Strikers Announce Pursuit of Soccer Specific Stadium

Mulroy has been actively involved in Traffic’s efforts to grow the NASL and Strikers. As team president, Mulroy will assume the overall responsibilities for the club on and off the field. Mulroy is known as “Soccer Tom” in United States and international soccer circles due to his participation in soccer at all levels throughout his career. Mulroy has been a South Florida community soccer leader for the last 25 years highlighted in part by serving as a member of the 1996 Olympic Soccer Games Executive Committee, organizing the Ball Run for the 1996 Olympics soccer tournament and serving on the Miami 2018–2022 World Cup Bid Committee.

“The combination of Tim Robbie and Tom Mulroy leading the Strikers gives us one of the most experienced soccer management teams in the country,” said Davidson. “Their experience and love for South Florida, the Strikers and the sport of soccer makes them the ideal team to take the Fort Lauderdale Strikers to the next level.” Both Tom Mulroy and Tim Robbie will be available for individual media interviews today. Please contact Ken Mendonca, kmendonca@strikers.com or 954-547-7567, to schedule a time. 2013 Strikers season tickets are now on sale.
