23rd Anniversary of Hispanic Women of Distinction Set for August 30, 2024 

Hispanic Women of Distinction

The annual celebration of Community, Culture and Charity honors Latinas in South Florida, past and present

 Fort Lauderdale, Florida; The 23rd annual Hispanic Women of Distinction Charity luncheon to be held on Friday, August 30, 2024, at Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Conference Center is anticipating another EARLY SELL-OUT paying tribute to Latina professionals who are strengthening the social fabric of this country and making inroads in the leadership pipeline for a growingly diverse America.

Founded in 2001 by the late Erwin M.Vasquez, M.D., a Venezuelan-born cardiologist, philanthropist and publisher of the pioneer Spanish newspaper, El Heraldo de Broward, the goal was to help to empower Latinas and to recognize the influence they have in the South Florida community.   These Latinas, both past and present, are not afraid to dream big, to carve their own paths, to be grateful for the opportunities they have received, and to pay it forward to those who will follow.

Presented by Latina Style Magazine, the nation’s leader in Hispanic women business in partnership with Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Latin Business Today and co-sponsored by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and Visit Lauderdale, as well as a host of other corporate and media partners, the Hispanic Women of Distinction celebration has become one of the nation’s largest celebrations of Latinas.

This year the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation is the charity benefiting from this event.  Since 1986 the mission of the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MS Focus) is to provide programs and support services to those persons affected by MS that help them maintain their health, safety, self-sufficiency, and personal well-being; and to heighten public awareness of multiple sclerosis in all 50 states and Puerto Rico from our single location in Fort Lauderdale.

Guests will enjoy a complimentary “motito” on arrival from Tito’s Handmade Vodka, refreshments, exciting Latin entertainment, a business expo along with a fantastic silent auction beginning at 11 am. At noon, the ballroom welcomes all guests with a superb luncheon, on-stage high-energy entertainment and a parade of the former honorees welcoming the 2024 Hispanic Women of Distinction to their special sisterhood.
