The Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade has announced business woman and fashion icon Elle Macpherson will emcee the 2015 Power of the Purse Luncheon scheduled for Friday, Mar. 13, at the Hilton Miami Downtown.
“As a fierce advocate for women’s and children’s rights and a true role model, we are honored to have Ms. Macpherson as the master of ceremonies at this year’s luncheon,” said Marilyn March, executive director of The Women’s Fund.
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.
Following a successful modeling career, which includes gracing the cover of five Sports Illustrated issues, she reinvented her brand through the creation of Elle Macpherson Intimates, a multimillion dollar lingerie business, and as co-founder of WelleCo, a business aimed at bringing superior wellness products into the global market, launching with an alkalizing super greens powder “The Super Elixir,” which recently launched on Net-a-Porter.
“The Women’s Fund belief in fighting for the betterment of women and children in this community is in line with my own personal belief that equal opportunity and access to resources leads to a better quality of life for women and children,” Macpherson said.
The Power of the Purse Luncheon is The Women’s Fund annual signature event. Attendance includes over 1,000 Miami- Dade community leaders, corporate executives, elected officials, celebrities and professional philanthropic-minded women and men, a powerful group committed to The Women’s Fund’s mission. Luncheon guests can look forward to an over-the-top silent auction, a sophisticated menu and a program which will inspire and empower.
