SHE-roes 2018

SHE-roes was sponsored by United Healthcare and presented by Memorial Healthcare System where we honored 10 amazing women in our community for all they are doing to make a difference in the lives of people every day. Macy’s presented a fashion show with the latest looks for the season that was sponsored by Meridian Treatment Solutions, and Brown & Brown Insurance. We also enjoyed beautiful raffle prizes donated by amazing donors such as The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and had a delicious fall inspired luncheon at the Pine Island Ridge Country Club in Davie, FL. This event not only honored women in our community but also helped raise funds for the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center. We are a residential and outpatient addiction treatment center for pregnant women and mothers with children.
