On March 8th, women around the world celebrated International Women’s Day in recognition of the tremendous social, political and economic achievements women have made. Through history, women have been empowered to be better, achieve more, climb ladders and break glass ceilings. The courage, determination and strength of women has led them to a time they can be proud of. Whether they are a daughter, a sister, a wife, or a mother, women understand how important it is to set the right example for the next generation of women to reach new levels of success in business and family.

In honor of this widely celebrated holiday, many of the incredible women of our very own community, came together for a Special Event hosted by AD Mortgage which is a leader in the mortgage industry and by Coffey Burlington, which is one of Florida’s most prominent law firms. The event was co-hosted by Tatiana Restaurant, one of the most elegant and upscale venues in the Miami Area.

This red carpet event featured delicious cuisine, chilled champagne, special performances, an awards ceremony and more. Together we celebrated the amazing women of our community and toasted to all the incredible women around the world. A very special thank you to AD Mortgage, Coffey Burlington and Tatiana Restaurant for hosting the RAC International Women’s Day Celebration. Special appreciation to our incredible photographer, Igor Heifetz, who was always in ten places at one time. Beautiful ladies in stunning gowns along with handsome gentlemen in dapper suits, took turns striking a pose on the red carpet! It was quite the celebration and what better reason could there be to celebrate….. then WOMEN!
