Congratulations to Junior League of Miami for its Outstanding Women Who Make A Difference Event
Women Who Make A Difference, an annual event hosted by Junior League of Miami, was held at the Colonnade Hotel in Coral Gables and attracted nearly three hundred attendees. The moving celebration of amazing honorees, Arva Moore Parks, Victoria Cummock and Lubby Navarro, was hosted by Channel 10 news anchor Laurie Jennings and preceded by an extensive silent auction. The afternoon also featured the presentation of JLM’s scholarships, which assists female high-school seniors in Miami-Dade Public Schools.
BoardroomPR’s Caren Berg attended – and like everyone who was there, came back with a Lilly Pulitzer gift bag and some wonderful swag.
“Junior League of Miami is a wonderful organization – and it’s always a pleasure to see how dedicated the South Florida community is in its desire to help those in need,” said Berg.
For those who don’t know, the Junior League of Miami, founded in 1926, is an organization of approximately 1,000 women sharing a common vision to empower Miami’s women, children, and families to conquer tomorrow’s challenges and to build a united community. The mission of the Junior League of Miami is to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women and improve communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The Junior League concentrates its resources to make a significant impact on our community. This year, in addition to providing $150,000 in direct funding, another $600,000 in volunteer hours will be dedicated to the community for projects that address families at risk.
