Pineapple Jam Raises $31,000 For Historic Stranahan House Museum
The Historic Stranahan House Museum’s annual Pineapple Jam generated more than $31,000 for Stranahan House, Fort Lauderdale’s birthplace. The funds raised are crucial to supporting the House’s preservation and education programs. The event was chaired by Maggie Gunther of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance and Stranahan House Executive Director April Kirk, who welcomed approximately 200 guests. Presented by TrippScott, the exciting evening included delectable Floribbean cuisine from Chef Hector of Sidecar Kitchen, a premium open bar with spirits, a wine bar by Ocean Wine & Spirits, live music by Jimmy Stowe and the Stowaways, and a silent auction. Over the years, the Stranahan House became a post office, a boarding house, a restaurant and home to the “Founding Father” and “First Lady” of Fort Lauderdale, Ivy and Frank Stranahan.
