2018 The Power of the Purse - The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade

Auction

The annual luncheon event of The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade, The Power of the Purse, is one of Miami’s most anticipated events. For over two decades, the luncheon has been recognized as one of the largest gatherings of “who’s who” of Miami-Dade County’s executives, business owners, community leaders, public officials, and philanthropic-minded women and men. Last year’s attendance exceeded 800 guests, and we anticipate a similar crowd this year. Join your peers at the Power of the Purse Luncheon and Auction and help us build a strong future for women and girls in Miami-Dade and beyond. When Women are Strong, the World is Strong. At this year’s event, attendees can look forward to the legendary Power of the Purse Silent Auction; a celebration of our past grantees and supporters over 25 years; the Presentation of The Gladstone Lifetime Achievement Award to the late former State Attorney Janet Reno, posthumously, by State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, accepted by Hunter Reno; A "Thriver" Story: Beyond Human Trafficking, and so much more. Over the Women’s Fund Miami-Dade’s 25 year history, the organization has provided close to $4 million in grants to almost 400 programs serving almost 60,000 women and girls. Significantly, in 2018, the organization is launching its new branding, Women Strong World Strong. Why? Because it wants to communicate a clear, simple, and strong message: When women are strong, our families are strong, our communities are strong, our economy is strong, our country is strong, and our world is strong. Throughout 2018, a critical election year, The Women's Fund Miami-Dade will be "turning up the volume" on issues affecting women and girls so that every voting-eligible woman becomes engaged in the issues and ultimately votes, especially women from suppressed and marginalized communities.
