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. With each century, decade, year and day; women are continuing to make strides. 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. Together we pave the road for the next generation of women to reach higher.  

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Russian-Speaking American Chamber of South Florida (“RAC”) hosted a special Champagne Sunday Brunch at one of South Florida’s favorite places, Terrazas at Hyde! A very special thank you to Terrazas for co-hosting this special event and their warm hospitality.  

The Champagne Sunday Brunch featured an extravagant buffet, unlimited mimosas and bellinis, raffle prices and an award ceremony. Together we celebrated the amazing women of our community and toasted to all the incredible women around the world.  

We extend our sincere appreciation for our incredible photographer, Igor Heifetz, who was always there to capture our special memories.  

Women are continuing to make strides. WOMEN in Business is an extension of RAC and focuses on empowering and uniting professional women through business development and community relations. WOMEN in Business is committed to helping women reach high levels of success in business, family, community outreach and charity involvement.  

This year, RAC recognized one incredible woman from our community and presented her with the Women of Distinction Award. Olga Rudoy, Vice-President of Southeastern Title Company is truly deserving of this award and is the perfect example to the next generation to prove… that women can do it all.
