Hook & Tackle Miami Dolphin Foundation Fins Weekend“I have made life long friends over the last 20 years with the Miami Dolphins organization, I have had the chance to visit hospitals with players, schools with children who seek mentorship and that feeling of being there for them over shadows anything else I can possibly do,” says Stan Rudman, chairman of Fins Weekend and an owner of Sportailor, parent company to Hook & Tackle.

“I have been fortunate in all my years in Miami and we wanted to partner with the Miami Dolphins to be able to give back together to our communities and lend a hand to all those that need it,” added Rudman. “Feels good to do good. The event just ended 24 hours ago, and I am already on it for 2019.”
