The attendees can make business contacts, have a great time, and make a difference. Men are welcome, it will be a fun & beneficial time for everyone!
High Heels & Handshakes is an organization that merges womenâ€™s networking and philanthropy together with a twist of fun.
Our monthly happy hour networking events serve to inspire camaraderie among professional women while donating a portion of the proceeds to partnership programs that support self-sufficiency amongst women in Miami, Florida, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Congo, Kosovo, Iraq, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Sudan.
Our goal is to make a difference in our local communities and abroad through organizations that provide opportunities for women to pursure their professional dreams. The charities we are working with for this quarter are “Women for Women International” and “Dress for Success Miami”.
* We meet on the 20th of every month. The events are fun and light, but also productive and beneficial

* Build rapport, develop camaraderie with like-minded, professional women
* Each event changes a womanâ€™s life with your cover charge
