On November 12, we hosted our inaugural Lifetime of Leadership Luncheon at the Rusty Pelican where we celebrated the professional accomplishments and community impact of local women who inspire us to make the world a better place.

Gifts made at the Luncheon allowed us to deepen our local impact and serve more girls in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.
