The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade’s signature Power of the Purse Luncheon and Auction will welcome over 800 of South Florida’s leaders, philanthropists, celebrities and government officials to celebrate the POWER of women and girls to create change in our community. Business woman and fashion icon, Elle Macpherson, will be Master of Ceremonies. Ms. Macpherson, who recently relocated with her young family to Miami after 17 years in London, is a global activist whose mission has been to promote causes that help women and children obtain quality healthcare services as well as access to safe and clean environments. Leading a stellar event committee are Co-Chairs M. Victoria Cummock and Tiffany Zientz Heckler and returning Auction Chair and Board member, Cyndi Hibnick. “Starting 2015, we are delighted to rename The Women’s Fund Lifetime Achievement Award after the founder of the organization, Marilynn Gladstone,” said Cummock. Marilynn Gladstone will personally present the Women’s Fund Lifetime Achievement Award (now named in honor of Women’s Fund founder, Marilyn Gladstone) to Ruth Shack. In addition to the Lifetime Achievement category, annually The Women’s Fund inducts new members to its Honor Roll. This year’s Honor Roll inductees will be Saliha Nelson, Lisa Schejola Akin and Anne Helliwell. While sipping on cocktails, guests should expect an over-the-top auction which will once again feature fabulous designer bags, wine collections, extraordinary travel experiences and jewelry. The luncheon will include an emotional and inspiring program which will highlight the transformational stories of the women and girls served in Miami-Dade County.
