Leave A Legacy: Donor Next Door Luncheon Honoring Mrs. Marile Lopez and Mr. Jorge Luis Lopez




 Leave A Legacy Foundation is a nonprofit organization that collectively organizes a group of professionals, and other not-for-profit institutions, who share the same ambition of promoting philanthropy work in Miami- Dade County, by inspiring members of the general public to create a legacy through charitable givings. Leave A Legacy delivers this message by hosting the Donor Next Door Luncheon, which is a multi-year public awareness campaign that gives not-for-profit organizations the opportunity to honor their most dedicated philanthropists for their influence to the community.

The campaign was established to showcase the generosity of individuals, families, foundations and corporations who donate their time, talents, and treasures to support the work of nonprofits in the arts, education and social services among others.

This year, Leave A Legacy will be honoring local donors whose philanthropy has supported the efforts of over 34 South Florida nonprofit organizations at the, 19th Annual Donor Next Door Luncheon.

During the Donor Next Door Luncheon, the not-for-profit organizations will be honoring their most dedicated philanthropists for their dedication to the community. The Miami Children’s Health Foundation has been acknowledged, and will be honoring Mrs. Marile Lopez and Mr. Jorge Luis Lopez — who serve on numerous boards of charitable and not-for-profit organizations — for their exceptional work for the Miami Children’s Health Foundation.

Mrs. Marile Lopez is presently the Chair of the Miami Children’s Health (MCH) Foundation, where she assists in formulating strategic policies and plans, and secures financial support for the not-for-profit organization. In 2013, Mr. and Mrs. Jorge Luis Lopez Chaired the MCH Diamond Ball for a second consecutive year, following the Diamond Ball’s remarkable achievements in 2012, where they raised $4.3 million dollars. Mrs. Lopez also served on Miami Children’s Health Foundation’s 2011 Diamond Ball Committee.

Mr. and Mrs. Lopez will be honored at this year’s Leave A Legacy, Donor Next Door Luncheon, which will take place at 11:45am on Thursday, May 12th at Parrot Jungle Island, 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail in Miami, FL.
