Motivate | Participate | Activate

Join us Tuesday, September 28th at 6pm  for great networking at Tarpon Bend on Second Street in the Historic District of Downtown Fort Lauderdale.

With the help of LB Class XXVIII, Riverwalk Trust’s GClub successfully installed  25 beautiful potted planters along the Riverwalk Park with BCIP grant funding from the City of Fort Laudersale.  Riverwalk Trust, committed to our Park,  is proud of the efforts by our GClub membership and community that raised over $25,000 and in-kind donations to make this happen.

Let’s celebrate our success!  Join our GClub team to get the latest scoop on our Potted Planter project and Adopt-a-Planter program. Learn about Riverwalk Trust’s newest membership levels!


Your GClub Chairs,
Renée Quinn, Ginny Miller & Bob Dugan
and our Project Coordinator, Genia Duncan Ellis

Our Goal:
The GClub is Riverwalk Trust’s way to promote our work with park enhancements and advocacy. It is also a way to raise funds, apply for grants and obtain matching dollars for continued plans outlined and overseen by the Master Plan & Projects committee. Funds raised by the GClub are dedicated to and administered through the Master Plan and Projects committee for @Riverwalk Programming and other park projects. Riverwalk Trust now has a dedicated team known as “GClubRs” to promote and support our park. We look forward to seeing how we can get everyone involved and be part of this exciting initiative. If you are interested in supporting our mission…join now!

Riverwalk Trust Membership…add GClub!

The GClub at Riverwalk Trust offers three levels of enhanced membership to support our park initiatives:

~ GClub Trustee Membership

Anyone can join our GClub Membership for a minimum annual contribution of $200, which includes Riverwalk Trust’s signature Riverwalk 100 membership. Existing Riverwalk Supporter members may upgrade to the GClub membership for a $250 annual contribution. We will be hosting monthly GClub Mixers starting spring.

The GClub Trustee Membership is our premier membership level.

For an additional $500 annual contribution, existing Riverwalk Trustee level members will become a GClub Trustee. Joining at an annual $1000 contribution, new members will receive the Riverwalk Trustee level membership benefits in addition to GClub Trustee membership.  Our Trustee mixer will be held at a member’s home in the fall.

Riverwalk Trust’s Urban Market



Join us at Esplanade Park on the New River

One of the initiatives Riverwalk Trust undertook during their Transition was an Annual Event Permit. I am proud to share credit for this “first ever” annual permit with Genia Duncan Ellis and Courtney Crush, who conceived, planned, prodded, pushed and promoted the Trust through this new partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale.

Riverwalk Trust received permission from the Fort Lauderdale City Commission to launch a pilot program that will bring year-round activity and events to our downtown along the Riverwalk Park.  They will execute an annual event agreement with the City, rather than approaching the City Commission with each individual event in Riverwalk Park.  It is an “umbrella” approach —  providing a new way to plan, activate and manage annual programs in the public right-of-way and on City land.

EVERY SATURDAY, beginning April 24 from 8am to 1pmRiverwalk Trust will sponsor an Urban Market on Saturdays at Esplanade Park along the New River from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The market will feature fruit and vegetables, baked items, seafood, cheeses, pottery and other goodies. The goal for providing the market is to activate the Riverwalk and to provide a service to the downtown and surrounding neighborhood residents.

Many unique and unusual products will be available at the market, including organic produce, an heirloom tomato producer, seafood vendor, organic soaps, spices, sauces, pastries, specialty fruit drinks, specialty coffee vendors, organic granola, jams, jellies, olive oils and spices, olive mixes, pastas, pasta sauces, mozzarella and oils, breads, doughnut muffins and special coffee, orchids, herbs, Peruvian food, guacamole and organic healing herbs. More than two dozen vendors have signed up for the market:

  • Robbie Bell – Speckled Dog Pottery
  • JC’s Ceviche and Salads
  • Carrie Stephens – Captain Redbeards Sauces
  • Jodi Swank – Hydro/Natural Produce – Swank Specialty Produce
  • Walter Ross & Debbie Doll – Farmhouse Tomatoes – Heirloom Tomatoes
  • Susana Garcia – Caribbean Fruit &Juices
  • Big Easy Olive Oil Company
  • Vito Volpe – Mozzarella & Olive Oils
  • Judy & John Mioduchoski – Everglades Seafood Express Fresh Seafood

  • Audrey Burg – Auggie’s Doggies Handmade Gourmet Dog Biscuits
  • Flavia Snitcovsky – Bistro Blends – Gourmet infused Olive Oils, Salts & Balsamic

  • Amanda Capece  – Good Vibes Teas – organic tea, raw honey, tea accessories

The GClub at Riverwalk Trust



MOTIVATE~PARTICIPATE~ACTIVATE

After successfully chairing the Riverwalk Trust from 2004-2006, Renée Quinn decided to develop a legacy project  that would make both a visual and tangible impact on the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s downtown, the Riverwalk Park. By bringing together Riverwalk Trust’s past chairs and Tribute honorees with community leaders and residents, she believed it was possible to tap into years of experience and commitment. “After all, it’s everyone’s responsibility to give back to Fort Lauderdale’s ‘Central Park’ that we call Riverwalk” says Quinn.

In the fall of 2008, Riverwalk Trust announced the launch of their new membership level, The GClub at Riverwalk Trust. Dedicated to the greening of the Riverwalk Park and the creation of a more sustainable, more grounded downtown lifestyle, The GClub will serve as the launch pad for an on-going series of projects.

The inaugural project of the The GClub at Riverwalk Trust is the installation of decorative potted planters throughout the park, spilling over with lush, tropical flowers and trees. A matching grant for $22,500 was secured for the project through the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Business Capital Improvement Program. “The installation of the pots is a way to beautify the Riverwalk and enhance the pedestrian experience of visitors to the park,” said Ginny Miller, Co-Chair of the GClub. Another benefit of the project is serving as a visual cue to the community that there is a vested group caring for the park.

On Saturday, February 13th,  2010, 110 Volunteers including Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler, City Commissioner Bobby DuBose, Genia Duncan Ellis and the CVC – Citizen Volunteer Corps, Leadership Broward Class XXVIII and Riverwalk Trust members completed the planting process in record time. Renée and her team were able to raise over $50,000 from GClub members, supporters and companies: The Riverwalk Trust Board of Directors, Bob Dugan and EDSA, Andrew Lester and The Continental Group, Ginny & Tom Miller with Miller Construction, Joe Marotta with Premier Beverage, Renée Quinn with QuinnProQuo, Genia Duncan Ellis with Ellis Consulting, Ken & Terri Ortner, Pat & Jim Demos, Lee Sheffield, Gary & Monica Correll, Bob & Susan Drinon,  Terry Stiles, and The Huizenga Foundation.

As part of this program, GClub members will also have an opportunity to “Adopt-A-Pot” along Riverwalk Park.  Renée and co-chairs Ginny Miller and Joe Marotta plan to create events for the group that will include membership gatherings, exclusive wine dinners for GClub Trustees and a GClub signature event planned for 2011.

“Summer TEAse” a GClubR Happy Hour Tea Party



In the spring of 2009, Gina Jackson, Marketing Director of the Fort Lauderdale History Center, approached Renée Quinn for help in raising awareness and dollars.   The result was Not Your Traditional Tea Party.

On Friday, July 17, 2009 from 4pm to 7pm at the New River Inn, the  Fort Lauderdale History Center and the GClub at Riverwalk Trust hosted a Happy Hour Tea Party. Guests enjoyed traditional tea and treats, wine sprizters, mar-TEA-ni’s, toasted coconut coladas,  chocolates, salt water taffy, raffle prizes and more!

Set with GClub’s beautiful pink parasols, pink roses in teapots and pink & white linens…the room glowed.  Both indoor and outdoor seating provided a cool break from the summer heat.  Island City Bistro provided a variety of fresh brewed iced and hot teas…and Kilwin’s blended their favorite toasted coconut  ice cream with Bacardi Dark Rum.  Finlandia Vodka served an orange blossom mar-TEA-ni and there was a long island style iced tea on the rocks!

The GClub, created by Renée Quinn, is Riverwalk Trust’s new membership level that was developed to provide dedicated dollars to the Riverwalk Park & Marina.  Renée connected GClub Partners to create this unique event: Premier Beverage, The Narrative Events, Island City Bistro, Kilwins Las Olas and Himmarshee Bar & Grill,  We thank them for helping GClub fun-raise for one of our favorite Riverwalk Park  partners  –  The Fort Lauderdale History Center…  Go GClub, Go Riverwalk, Go Giving.

Press Coverage was provided by Sun Sentinel’s  Society Scene (Cover and feature story)  and Riverwalk Trust’s Go Riverwalk magazine.

The result:  Fun, awareness, park activation and more dollars raised than ever before at a summer event for the History Center!

Summer TEAse Team:  Renée Quinn for QuinnProQuo, Viviane Morrison for the Narrative Events, Sue Molnar for the City of Fort Lauderdale and Gina Jackson for the Fort Lauderdale History Center.
