I was recently contacted by the Women’s Fund of Miami Dade and invited to photograph their annual Power of the Purse luncheon. Donating services and involving our company with many of the wonderful organizations that do so much good, is just one way we have found to give back to the community that supports us.
Hundreds of women came with their purses and passion to the Women’s Fund signature “Power of the Purse” luncheon. Between socializing and networking, the attendees took time to bid on a long line of designer handbags and elaborate purses that were donated by local business and international designers.
It was during the luncheon that the power of this organization, the power of the women that devote their time and energy really hit home. What I wasn’t expecting were the stories of three young ladies that described their difficult lives and the journey that they have taken to become strong role models for those that are going through difficult times. It’s not easy taking pictures with tears in your eyes. The Women’s Fund is the only grant making organization in Miami Dade County entirely dedicated to funding programs that work to improve the lives of women and girls.
Our studio is proud to support this wonderful organization and we are going one step further: book a session and have your portrait taken from now through August 31st, 2009. Mention the Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade and Roy Llera Photographers will make a donation of $100.00 to the Women’s Fund of Miami Dade. This is a great opportunity to have great portraits and at the same time continue to support an organization that is helping so many women in our community.
