We just wanted to take the time to personally thank you again for your participation during our 6th Annual Karting for the Kure! We truly appreciate everyone’s hard work and dedication to a cause that has affected so many in our lives.

Because of you…and your support…we are happy to report that we will be writing a much larger check this year to Memorial Breast Cancer Center!! We are continuing our fundraising efforts as we will be selling commemorative shirts, pink ribbons, Fiat tickets and more for the entire month of October and will be sure to update you with a total at the end. Our goal was to make this year bigger than years’ past and we have already done that – it can only get better!

Some highlights of the day included an impressive car show with 70+ unique vehicles on display… delicious boobie cupcakes, ice cream treats and tacos… gorgeous pin up models posing with our go kart… awesome photo opportunities… a special appearance by Dr. Carmen Calfa and her family… super bright pink hair extensions… a surprise visit from our Sheriff, Al Lamberti… a survivor lap race that was featured on the front page of the local section in the Sun-Sentinel… volunteer face painting… a wacky photo booth… 10 teams in our Endurance Lap race… great music… big raffle prizes… beautiful unique custom trophies and so many wonderful experiences for everyone that attended.

We are keeping the event online and will be posting pictures soon on facebook and our website. A special thanks to Sidney from NLPG Images for making sure to be “everywhere” and capturing so many great moments. He was with us all day long…even after the endurance race awards and buffet! And in keeping with our usual, somewhat risqué and definitely tacky salutations, we at Xtreme just want to say “Thanks for the Mammories”!

We look forward to working with you all again next year…

Hello WeCanDo Print Fans!

ball300 Hello WeCanDo Print Fans! Hello Wecando Print fans.  Many of you have joined us at the Strikers games over the last two seasons and we hope that continues next year as we have had a great time with our tailgate parties and the action in the suite.

The Strikers made it to the finals last year and they are almost sure to be in the playoffs this year unless my saying that screws it up.  If so I apologize in advance.  Haha not going to happen, they will make it.

Well several things happened this year that have improved our motivation to be further involved with the Strikers next year.

1. We started an new tradition with the Boy Scouts cooking at our tailgate parties to raise money for summer camp.  They started with hamburgers and hotdogs and have introduced frito pie, steak and cheese sandwiches, shrimp on the barby and more.  It keeps getting better!  With your help and their hard work they raised enough money for some of them to go to Alaska this year.  Thank you for eating their food!

2.  Tradition number 2 and our overwhelming favorite: Yuengling on Tap!  Do I need to say more?

3.  Duffy’s Party on The Pitch!  Mark and the Girls have been great and unlimited beer while watching the game on the field can’t be beat…YET!

4.  Well on to 2013…here comes the yet part.  We are currently working it out with the Strikers to take an entire suite at each game for our friends and clients.  Wecando Print, Planned Growth, ComRes and Fritz & Franz Bierhaus our joining to take our own suite at the games.  We will keep the suite supplied with beer, wine, soda, water and snacks for our guests to have our own Party in the Suite!

While we are very excited about this, it also means that we are trading in some of our 110 seats we buy for every game as giveaways in order to make this happen, so some of our loyal tailgate fans might want to consider the Strikers season ticket package below…I strongly recommend the Duffy’s Party on The Pitch tickets.  We will still be giving away tickets but we will have much less to give, but something had to be sacrificed.   Haha.

So take advantage of the great pricing on tickets from the Strikers and register with Wecando Print on our website to win tickets to our Strikers suite and our Panther’s suit.
