The third annual Women of Distinction & Caring Luncheon celebrated the 2010 "Fabulous Five" who have devoted their time, talent and resources to enriching South Florida's community organizations. This year's honorees are: Marlene Berg, Melanie Cohen, Tracy Mourning, Katherine Fernandez Rundle and Jennifer Valoppi.

A lavish silent auction of over 100 items and champagne reception, enjoyed by 300 guests, preceded the elegant luncheon where each of the 2010 Women of Distinction & Caring was introduced by a short video. Each honoree spoke about their passion for, and commitment to, community service and the important role that volunteers play in growing and sustaining organizations that make a difference in our lives and impact our community for years.

The honorees are connected through their service - be it volunteerism by mentoring future generations who may one day be our caregivers, by communicating our message via the internet, or by raising funds for research to find cures for diabetes and cancer.

The inspiring afternoon was co-chaired by the previous year's honorees: Josefina Carbonell, Diana Gonzalez, Schatzi Kassal, Sandra Levy, Diane Magnum, The Honorable Carrie Meek, Heather Rohan, Sandra A. Sears, Victoria Villalba, and Sonja Zuckerman.

Proceeds from the luncheon will support services to over 900 residents of the Plaza Health Network, eight award-winning rehabilitation and skilled nursing centers located in neighborhoods throughout Miami-Dade County. For further information or to schedule a tour, please call 305-917-0418; www.plazahealth.org
