CITY Furniture Partners With Miami Dolphins for Annual “Delivering Hope” Event

Thanks to the partnership, over 100 children will enjoy a more comfortable night of sleep.

Hard Rock Stadium was recently the site of an event hosted by City Furniture, the Miami Dolphins, and the Miami Dolphins Football Unites program. The Miami Dolphins Football UNITES community partners and local non-profit organizations, such as HANDY/HOMES, participated in an evening of fun and entertainment. The event included interactive games, a behind-the-scenes tour of Hard Rock Stadium and the Miami Dolphins locker room, and a delicious dinner. At the end of the night, CITY Furniture CEO Andrew Koenig, along with Miami Dolphins players Jerome Baker, Emmanuel Ogbah, Duke Riley, and Durham Smythe, surprised 100 children and their families with a brand-new bed that featured Miami Dolphins-themed bedding.

For the past six years, the Dolphins and CITY Furniture have collaborated to provide over 600 beds to needy children and families via the Delivering Hope program. The recipients of this event included families from Lotus House Women’s Shelter, HANDY/HOMES, the Mexican American Council, the Seeking Education Empowers Knowledge (S.E.E.K) Foundation, and SOS Children’s Villages Florida.

Rize generously donated the bedframes, BedGear provided the pillows, and Serta Simmons supplied the mattresses, ensuring that each child received a complete and comfortable sleep set at the Delivering Hope event.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
