Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle has been selected as one of the recipients of the 2016 Hispanic Woman of Distinction Award.
This year marks the 15th year that a charity luncheon and awards program is held to recognize Latina women who have contributed to their South Florida communities and represent a cross-section of creative disciplines that are changing the face of American culture. The annual event is presented by Latina Style Magazine, the nation’s leading Latina business publication, and Bank of America as well as a large number of corporate and media partners in South Florida. The charity selected this year to represent the event is the Light of the World Clinic, a free healthcare facility for the poor founded by the late Dr. Erwin M. Vasquez, a Venezuelan cardiologist.
The annual event recognizes distinguished women of Hispanic ethnicity who have made a significant contribution to the community while maintaining their culture and traditions. Nominations are submitted by former winners of the award and by local community leaders who submit names of Latinas who are eligible for the honor from Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties.
It is an honor to be a recipient of the 2016 Hispanic Woman of Distinction Award, commented State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. With Miami-Dade’s growing reputation as America’s Gateway to Latin America, it is important to recognize how Latina women are providing broad depth and direction to our multi-national community. The improvements each of these women have made to our South Florida community through their achievements adds another layer to our deep and rich cultural mix.
State Attorney Fernandez Rundle will be presented with the Hispanic Woman of Distinction Award during a Latin flavored luncheon and awards ceremony on Friday, August 12, 2016, at the Signature Grand in Davie.
