  • Pelican Harbor Seabird Station
    In 1980, Harry and Darlene Kelton moved their houseboat to the Pelican Harbor Marina and discovered an injured brown pelican. Without the aid of animal-care experience, they removed a fishhook from his mouth and rehabilitated him. This led them to form the Pelican Harbor Seabird Station in their shed. With the help of volunteers and trained staff, the seabird station rescues, treats, and rehabilitates sick and injured wildlife, and promotes their preservation with educational programs and research efforts. The center specializes in brown pelicans, most of which are entangled in fishing tackle, but will treat any animal brought in for care. In 2007, they treated 87 bird species and 39 mammals, nonmigratory birds, reptiles, and amphibians.

  • The Miami Symphony Orchestra
    Since 1989, The Miami Symphony Orchestra has mimicked Miami’s cultural diversity with concerts and events that act as a melting pot of musical influences. Music director Eduardo Marturet, a Venezuelan composer and conductor, helms many of the concerts, encouraging the musicians to unleash their inner Beethovens or Bachs—former members of the ’80s hair-metal band Skid Row.

  • The Big Heart Paddle
    The Big Heart Paddle challenges philanthropic paddleboarders with 3- and 5-mile races, the proceeds of which benefit Bravery Beads, an organization dedicated to serving children with cancer. A sprawling 3-mile course welcomes any type of standup board, which racers steer through the water using standard paddles or inflatable pool noodles. The competitive 5-mile race allows only 12.5-inch stock boards, supplying loaners to those who need them, and putting entrants of all experience levels on an even playing field in order to show off refined paddling techniques or the ability to leap from board to dolphin back. Kicking off with a prerace coffee and breakfast, the event extends into a party, boasting an array of energy boosters such as a DJ, photo booth, and free beer, with event sponsors including Kona Brewery, Fratelli La Bufala, Lime Fresh Mexican, Zico, and more. All participants and spectators can attend, taking the opportunity to witness the Most Stylish Paddle award and to swap anecdotes about besting Poseidon.

  • US Gas and Electric
    Ranked one of the United States' fastest-growing private companies every year since 2007, U.S. Gas & Electric leverages its expansion to supply electricity and natural gas to customers across the nation, with an emphasis on eco-friendly products and sustainable energy sources. Rates for the variable-price program fluctuate monthly based on market changes and shifts in the positions of the giant mirrors on the moon. New enrollees will receive a $70 rebate check in the mail following service activation, as well as an additional 6% rebate after six months and a 10% rebate after 18 months, calculated on the highest month's supply charges. Though Groupon customers must enroll for a minimum period of six months to avoid a cancellation fee ($20), the program carries no other long-term commitments, an ideal situation for homeowners planning to meet future energy needs by stuffing every lampshade with an electric eel.
