American Heritage Schools [ahschool.com], the top-ranked PK3 through 12 college preparatory school in Florida, is proud to announce its annual “K-9 Cause: An Evening of Art” auction benefiting the Broward Sheriff’s Foundation’s Retired Canine Relief Fund, on Saturday, April 20.

Everyone loves dogs; however, police dogs, or K-9s, are a special breed. Instead of enjoying the pampered pet lifestyle, K-9s dedicate their entire lives to working daily to protect and serve citizens in our community along with their fearless handlers. They are considered law enforcement officers, whose duties include constant training, apprehending suspects, and searching for explosives, drugs, and missing persons.

When the K-9s retire, their law enforcement handlers graciously adopt them and continue to care for them, as these K-9s have become their friends for life. Recognizing that the medical and healthcare for these K-9s can get quite costly, the Broward Sheriff’s Foundation has established the Retired K-9 Healthcare Fund. This Fund pays for up to 50% of the wellness care costs for all retired K-9s from any local law enforcement agency in Broward County.

Inspired by a little boy’s passion for animals and art, American Heritage Schools is raising money to “fund this fund” by selling artistic renditions of these fine K-9s. Jackson Laurie, a sophomore at American Heritage Schools, and his parents Dr. Douglas Laurie and Nikki Laurie-Van Allen have partnered with the National Art Honor Society and the award-winning Fine Arts faculty at American Heritage to create artwork of these very K-9 being honored.

American Heritage Schools, Broward Campus, will be hosting a Silent Auction for these original works of art, as well as a limited supply of prints for sale at our K-9 Cause event. 100% of all funds raised from this event will benefit the Broward Sheriff Foundation’s Retired K-9 Relief Fund.

This inaugural event will bring together a boating style of living and marine enthusiasts from around Florida and abroad for an unforgettable weekend of nautical excitement, shopping, networking, and entertainment.

The SoFlo Boat Show is the ultimate destination for the boating way of life, offering an unparalleled showcase of the finest marine vessels, equipment, and accessories. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of boats, from cruisers to high-performance fishing boats, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Miami skyline. In addition to showcasing a variety of vessels, both on land and in water, one of the features of the show will be the sea trial dock for those looking to test the many featured boats on the water. Boat manufacturers already confirmed to participate include Yellowfin, Invincible, SeaVee, Boston Whaler, Pursuit, Albemarle, Tiara, Seahunter, Pathfinder, Blackfin, Hurricane, Cobia, and Sea Hunt, to name a few. The show will also feature all boating parts and accessories, across engines, electronics, fishing equipment, diving gear, and more. Organizers are taking an innovative approach to boost sales by offering 100 gallons of Shoreline Marine Fuel to anyone who buys a boat during the show, and an opportunity to win an Icon golf cart to anyone who buys a SoFlo Boat Show ticket.

“We are thrilled to launch the SoFlo Boat Show, the premiere boating lifestyle event in Miami that celebrates our shared passion for the nautical way of life,” said Tony Albelo, CEO of EngageLive. “Miami Marine Stadium is the perfect venue to host this spectacular showcase, and we cannot wait to welcome boating fans to join us for this experience”, Albelo added.
In addition to the impressive display of marine crafts and accessories, the SoFlo Boat Show will feature engaging seminars and workshops led by industry experts, as well as live music, gourmet food, and a wide array of activities for the whole family. Attendees will also have the chance to network with industry professionals and fellow boat lovers, making this a must-attend event for anyone passionate about boating. The organizers are committed to making this an experience that caters to both boating aficionados and newcomers. Featured experiences of the show will include:

• In-Water Displays – With boats in every shape, size, and style, and as a precursor to the summer season, exhibitors will be looking to close out deals with last-minute specials to move inventory before the Summer.
• The Sea Trial Dock – Will have a selection of boats available to run throughout the entire weekend for those wanting to test-drive on the water.
• El Mar Pavilion – Will feature boats, watercraft, electronics, accessories, fishing products, apparel, and anything and everything nautical. All this, under the comfort of air-conditioning.
• Nautical Art & Décor – Boaters enjoy being surrounded by nautical-themed art and décor; it’s a reminder of where we live, work, and play, and the show will have a selection of nautically themed art exhibitors from around the country.
• Commemorative Poster – Carey Chen has been commissioned to create the very first limited-edition collectible poster. Chen is a genuine master of his craft, gaining worldwide attention for his unparalleled portraits of life at sea. The incredible blend of colors and exquisite detail are the trademark of each Carey Chen masterpiece, which has catapulted him to the forefront of the marine art industry.
• Fishing Fun Zone – Not only can you see and buy the latest and greatest in fishing, but the interactive Fishing Fun Zone will host seminars, workshops, and engaging experiences for anglers of all ages.
• The Center Consoles Only VIP Experience – When patrons of the CCO VIP Experience arrive at the show, they’ll be shuttled by private Icon golf carts right to the front gates of the show. Inside the show, they’ll have access to the exclusive CCO Experience Lounge with an open bar, and private seating – all in air-conditioned comfort!
• The Ship’s Wheel & The Galley – What would a waterfront boat show be without an iconic bar and food selection? The team behind the Ship’s Wheel, a 360-degree bar, will keep those drinks coming. Meanwhile, The Galley will feature food from South Florida’s top restaurants and vendors including a full raw bar.
• Soundings Live Music Stage – The Marine Stadium has a long history of showcasing some of the biggest names in music. The Soundings Stage will feature live music every day and when the sun goes down, the nightly Headliner Concert begins making it the perfect ending to a blissful boating day.

SoFlo Boat Show’s Focus on the Environment & Boating Safety

As Miami natives and big advocates of preserving the environment and boating safety, the show organizers are committed to supporting both causes by implementing these initial efforts:

Environment – The Show has committed to operating sustainably during the operation of the event and as such, has engaged marine environment experts to ensure responsible show production. In addition to targeting on-land and in-water efforts, SoFlo will have a strict no Styrofoam policy, as well as restrict the use of plastics.

Boating Safety – Every year, the industry and our local community experiences avoidable accidents, injuries, and loss of life. As lifelong boaters, the SoFlo founders and organizers have committed to making a positive influence on boating safety, including partnering with and supporting local boating safety foundations in the community that are pushing for education and awareness of boating responsibly. In subsequent years, the show’s commitment to boating safety will expand, including the development and introduction of new and inventive boating safety programs.

Triller, the globally AI-powered music video platform in partnership with Black Stage Productions, is bringing its first-ever live version of Trillerfest to Miami Marine Stadium this May 1st and May 2nd. If 2020 has proven anything, it’s that people really love music; Trillerfest Miami is giving people the opportunity to enjoy live, in-person concerts once again while promoting social distancing. The two-day music festival is guaranteed to rock your soul with your favorite Hip Hop hits and Latin music. Headlining the first night is five-time Grammy-winning hip-hop star Lil Wayne who will perform a one-hour set packed with some of his greatest hits. Grammy-winning 2 Chainz will also perform an hour-long set, while Tyga and Cris Cab will share their music with fans in 45-minute performances. Headlining on the second night is Cris Cab followed by Grammy-winning Gente de Zona y sus amigos.

On May 1st the seating will be formatted in three different tiers, 1, 2 & 3, pod-style. Guests will purchase individual tickets depending on the tier they would like to choose, each pod-style tier has different prices and fits up to six people. All pod tiers are first come, first serve; there will also be a limited quantity of rentable chairs available, first-come, first-serve. Each guest pod provides room for up to six guests and will be spaced apart from other pods, allowing the venue to maintain the recommended distance between groups. Guests will drive into the Marine Stadium grounds, park, walk to their designated pod and enjoy an amazing show while ensuring that social distancing protocols are followed.

On May 2nd the event will be a drive-in format. Concert-goers can expect a unique tailgate experience with back-to-back live performances from the comfort of their car and a private space situated next to their vehicle, 15×15 (including car), up to six guests are allowed per vehicle.

Trillerfest Miami’s ultimate goal is to deliver a unique, safe, and viable alternative to the “normal” concert-going experience, pod, and drive-in tailgate format! On both days, attendees can bring their food, drinks, and portable chairs to set up in their designated area where they will have a view of the live performance on stage and the large side screens. Food & beverages will be available for purchase via local food trucks, so fans can get a flare for the local Miami cuisine.

The Rotary Club of Key Biscayne Foundation recently completed its XIII Annual Wine and Food fund raiser on Friday, January 26th. The event sold out quickly and turned into another resounding success with the help and support from the Rotary Club of Key Biscayne, The Nobis Foundation, The ARC of South Florida, our long standing partner Manos del Sur and community members at large.

Thirteen participating restaurants from our community prepared food delicacies to match the wines. Twenty four wineries competed for the recognition of Best in Show White and Red.

According to five independent judges, the winning white wine was B de Chanzy, a Rose from Provence, France, a delightful blend of Grenache and Syrah.

The winning red wine was a Merlot from Deerfield Ranch in Sonoma Valley, CA.
