9th Annual Inner Circle of Twelve Luncheon and Fashion Show
American Cancer Society Honors Twelve Outstanding Women
Over four hundred people joined the American Cancer Society at the JW Marriott Marquis to honor local philanthropists for their commitment to our community at the Ninth Annual Inner Circle of Twelve Luncheon and Fashion Show. Guests included the Honorable Katherine Fernandez Rundle, Senator Anitere Flores, Trish Bell, Fana Holtz, Virginia Jacko, Christy Martin, Ramona Busot, Yolanda Berkowitz, and many more. The Inner Circle of Twelve Luncheon recognized twelve outstanding women for their leadership, volunteerism, community involvement and dedication to the American Cancer Society’s mission. This year’s event certainly was Miami’s luncheon of the year, as it raised over $130,000 to help the American Cancer Society save lives from cancer.
