CHAPMAN PARTNERSHIP’s Take A Walk in Her Shoes Redesigned

From the museum's waterfront terrace and from home, guests toasted artistic achievements and celebrated Miami’s resilient arts community.

Womenade’s annual Take A Walk in Her Shoes walked a new path this year with Take a Walk in Her Shoes Redesigned on Friday, May 7. at the Biltmore Hotel and various Watch Parties hosted in homes across the community. The event was organized by Womenade, a group of women dedicated to increasing awareness and revenue for Chapman Partnership.

The luncheon was a huge success and connected guests to delight in delectable bites, cocktails by Grey Goose Essences and Miami Cocktail Co. and sweet treats to support one unifying mission – empowering the homeless women and children at Chapman Partnership. 

The immersive video program that connected 315 guests in the hybrid event was emceed by six-time Emmy award winning journalist, Laurie Jennings, and Symeria Hudson, President and CEO of Chapman Partnership. Inspiring stories of hope were shared by  three 2021 Take a Walk in Her Shoes honorees: accomplished actress Gabrielle Anwar; passionate philanthropist Asha Elias; and Miami-Dade County Public School’s Teacher of the Year Teresa Murphy; and Chapman Partnership resident.
