Give back while celebrating a night under the stars with Mark Duper from the Miami Dolphins and the Founders of the HOW Foundation of South FloridaÂ at the popular Tiki Bar at Craneâ€™s BeachHouse Hotel, which will provide an array of amazing hors dâ€™oeuvres and tasty treats, plus live music.Â Carolyn Duper, wife of former NFL Dolphin Mark â€œSuperâ€ Duper, is serving as Honorary Chair of this Fun-Raiser. For more than 35 years, she has worked for healthcare giant Florida Blue, where she gained a solid foundation in healthcare, insurance policies and procedures. As a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother, Mrs. Duperâ€™s primary focus is her familyâ€™s health and well-being, so ever since her husband was diagnosed in 2013 with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, she has actively researched and championed effective treatments for brain injuries including HBOT.
