Women Who Make A Difference

JOIN US AS WE CELEBRATE THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE WONDER WOMEN IN OUR COMMUNITY

Each year, the Junior League of Miami hosts a Spring luncheon to recognize 3 to 4 outstanding women who exemplify the League’s mission of promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities.  Ideally, the women will have made a positive contribution to Miami and/or the surrounding communities.  At least one woman must be a JLM Sustaining Member.

Join us on Friday, March 9th, at Hotel Colonnade Coral Gables for the 2018 Women Who Make A Difference Luncheon. The event will start promptly at 11:00 AM. We are excited to announce that this  year’s luncheon will be hosted by Laurie Jennings!
