The Junior League of Miami (JLM) will be hosting its 19th Annual Women Who Make a Difference Luncheon virtually on September 10th, 2020. This event, presented by The Northern Trust Company, is a fundraiser honoring women who have made outstanding contributions in volunteerism and developing the potential of women in our local community. This year’s honorees are Becky Roper Matkov, Maria Clara Harrington, Ana VeigaMilton and Lileana de Moya.

This year we have three scholarships being awarded to local females exhibiting exceptional community service and academic achievement throughout high school. This year’s new scholarship winners are Milarvi Paul, Massiel Cobblah, and Natalia Fermin. In addition to the new scholarship winners, we have three past scholarship winners who have been extended for another year of scholarship funding; these young women are Sophie Sepheri (Duke University), Telkevia Mackey (FAMU), and Sabrina Dillon (Tulane).


Proceeds from this event will support programs focused on women and children at risk. Individual and corporate support will fund our three signature projects: INN Transition North (ITN), INN Transition South (ITS), and Done in a Day volunteer opportunities. For more than 20 years, INN Transition North and South have provided transitional housing facilities and support for survivors of domestic violence. Today, ITN and ITS serve nearly 300 women and children.


The Women Who Make a Difference Luncheon, presented by The Northern Trust Company, is going virtual on Thursday, September 10th, 2020. Emcee Pam Gigante will lead an engaging panel discussion with our 2020 honorees: Ana VeigaMilton, Lileana de Moya, Maria Clara Harrington, and Becky Roper Matkov.
