AMC Chair Cliff Schulman of Weiss Serota Helfman kicked off the event by welcoming all-star business and community leaders to Luca Bella, Aventura’s favorite family-style Italian restaurant, along with Jacky Bijaoui of American Leisure Tours and Patricia Rotsztain of Decorous Realty
Scoring points for fulfilling the motto “Your Dream Come True,” Bijaoui explained American Leisure Tours specializes in offering great travel options for individuals, groups and families including customized U.S. and international tours, cruises, breathtaking sightseeing “Helicotours” and Club Med vacation or business meetings. AMC members were invited to join in a Family Weekend at Club Med, Sandpiper Bay, June 6-8 featuring sports challenges, entertaining shows, dancing, children’s programs and more super fun in the sun!
Touching down on “real estate perfected,” Rotsztain, recently appointed State Director for the Florida Association of Realtors, noted buyers, sellers and investors from around the world appreciate Decorus Realty for recruiting a championship team of over 160 experienced, multi-lingual agents.
The meeting’s second half was “all about football” as the microphone was passed to Moss and Cirqua. Sharing Super Bowl predictions, they concurred, “The team that wins the turnover battle wins the game!”
Moss, inducted into the University of Miami Hall of Fame, has played in the NFL for 14 seasons, earning impressive stats including 722 receptions, 10,167 yards and 66 touchdowns. But perhaps his career highlight was establishing the Santana Moss Foundation dedicated to fostering philanthropy and volunteerism. The Foundation hosts proactive “Dare 2 Dream Weekend” events inspiring children to believe that through education, hard work and integrity, they can alter their circumstances and accomplish anything with an "I can” attitude.
Cirqua, formerly an NFL linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts played in the NFL from 2001 to 2005. Currently serving on the Board of Directors of the NFL Players Association South Florida Chapter, he joins in initiatives such as supporting the Miami Police Athletic League and the goal to prevent juvenile delinquency through the use of educational and athletic activities.
