Power of the Purse 2022

Thank you for making Power of the Purse 2022 a tremendous success of collective energy, insights and camaraderie, not to mention fundraising!

Event Co-Chairs, Norma Jean Abraham, Ann Machado, DeAnne Connolly Graham and their wonderful host committee,  join me, our staff and our fabulous Board of Directors in celebrating you and your contributions!  We raised $230k and we raised the roof, applauding the confirmation of Miami’s own Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson to the US Supreme Court, Madame Mayor Levine Cava, stellar performances by Juliette Valle and Lee-Yahna Lawson, and the testimonial of LEAP graduate Angelena Jackson, while welcoming in a new phase of grant making, research and celebrating 3 decades of making a difference!
