United Way of Broward County’s Women United, a powerful network of women confronting head-on the most critical issues facing the Broward County community, is hosting its 9th Annual Magnolia Luncheon virtually on Wednesday, June 3, 2020. Col. Nicole Malachowski will participate in a virtual Q&A style discussion with the “who’s who” of Broward County women.

The event that recognizes women of dignity, strength and perseverance will take place from 11:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The event’s co-chairs are author Susie Levan and April Lewis-Parks, Consolidated Credit.

All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit United Way of Broward County’s COVID-19 relief campaign to raise funds that will be used for two key areas, food assistance and emergency financial assistance.

Col. Nicole Malachowski, USAF (Ret.) defies stereotypes. She is a leader, a combat veteran, the first woman pilot on the Thunderbirds Air Demonstration Squadron, a White House Fellow, and an inductee into both the National Women’s Hall of Fame and the Women in Aviation International Pioneer Hall of Fame. Nicole’s distinguished 21-year Air Force career exceeded her wildest dreams, but the dream came to an end when a devastating tick- borne illness left her struggling greatly to speak or walk for almost nine months. An indomitable spirit, Nicole fought back against overwhelming odds and prevailed. Drawing on stories from her career and personal life, Nicole inspires audiences to rethink the challenges they face every day. She urges them to go beyond resilience and become resurgent.

For the first time with every ticket purchased you are entered into a drawing for the Secret Armoire featuring luxurious goods, jewelry, getaways and more.

Tickets to attend the virtual event range from $50 – $500. To attend the event or become a sponsor, visit www.UnitedWayBroward.org/magnolia2020 or for more information, please contact Macey Markowitz, MA, CPCA at 954-453-3754 or email mmarkowitz@UnitedWayBroward.org.
