Wellington’s Julie Kime Named Among 2015 Hispanic Women Of Distinction

On Friday, Aug. 14, the 14th annual Hispanic Women of Distinction charity luncheon and expo hosted its annual celebration of Latinas from Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties for a sold-out audience of nearly 900 people at the Signature Grand in Davie. The key theme of the luncheon was “Community, Culture, Charity and Leading by Example.”

Longtime Wellington businesswoman Julie Kime was among the nominees. She has worked with Wellington’s Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club for 30 years as a volunteer, past chair, advisory board member and philanthropist. Kime is dedicated to the children in the community and has also worked with Allstate Insurance.

“We were able to share a wonderful afternoon with a room full of amazing women who all coincide in their desire to help those in need in our community and serve as role models for future generations”, said Elaine Miceli-Vasquez, producer of the luncheon. “I am grateful for all our sponsors and by creating such a powerful platform to build meaningful connections between businesses and the Latina community.”
