“At this milestone Corporate Luncheon, we’re celebrating Miami’s growing and thriving cultural landscape built with the support of business leaders and corporations who care about the community they operate in and the arts,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. “This year, we are pleased to honor Publix Super Markets Charities, whose 20 years of support and partnership has helped shape and build PAMM’s education programming.”

Publix Super Markets Charities has played a fundamental role in the community since 1966. By supporting a variety of nonprofit organizations engaged in life-changing work, Publix Charities makes a far-reaching impact throughout the Southeast, resulting in stronger communities infused with hope and preparedness for a brighter future. Publix Super Markets Charities has been involved with PAMM since 1998, supporting the museum’s exhibitions and educational programs, including PAMM Free Second Saturdays, which attracts more than 4,000 visitors each month.  

The PAMM Corporate Luncheon raises funds for the museum’s education programs. PAMM is the largest provider of art education outside of Miami-Dade County Schools, reaching more than 160,000 children since opening in December 2013. Corporate support has made many of these free programs possible, which include: free family activities every second Saturday; Art Detectives, a new arts education program that promotes critical and timely dialogue between community youth and police; Brick x Brick, a program for at-risk teens which takes place at community centers in underserved areas throughout Miami-Dade, and focuses on architecture, design and community planning; PAMM in the Neighborhood, a summer camp program for underserved youth; and more.

This year’s lunch reception will allow attendees to network, browse the museum and enjoy a film highlighting conservation and restoration efforts by Bank of America, Miami-Dade College, and Fendi.
