(MIAMI, FL — September 30, 2021) — Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is pleased to present the Thirteenth Corporate Luncheon, presented by Constellation Culinary Group, on October 5, 2021, 11am–2pm. The annual networking event returns this year, bringing together arts and business leaders to celebrate the Miami business community’s contributions to South Florida and beyond. Funds from the event support PAMM’s vital arts education outreach programs, which serve more than 47,000 children each year. This year’s event is co-chaired by Laura Kaplan, Market President of BNY Mellon Wealth Management and PAMM Trustee, and Matt Haggman, Executive Vice President, One Community One Goal, The Beacon Council.

“Corporate Luncheon celebrates the vital relationship between art institutions and business leaders, who together allow our city to thrive,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. “I look forward to toasting Miami’s business community, whose support allows us to continue our important and ever-evolving arts education programs well into the future.”

The PAMM Corporate Luncheon theme this year is “Destination Miami”, tapping into Miami’s current profile as a top destination for entrepreneurs and businesses relocating from elsewhere around the country, or choosing Miami as a great place to invest in new ventures. Program speakers include: PAMM Trustee Kimberly Marshall, Black Angels Miami & Goldman Sachs' Launch with GS; Dr. Sarah Pishevar Haynes, Founder & CEO of Dr. Haynes Collective and COO, Pishevar Family Office & Pishevar Haynes Family Foundation; and Annette Rodriguez, Founder & Managing Partner at MKH Capital Partners. PAMM will present this year’s Corporate Honors to REEF, a long-time partner and supporter of PAMM.

After dining on an inventive menu by Constellation Culinary Group, guests will have the opportunity to peruse PAMM’s newest exhibitions and galleries, including Marco Brambilla: Heaven’s Gate, a large-scale virtual reality installation that explores Hollywood glamour excess. 

Corporate Luncheon supports PAMM’s arts education program, the largest education program in Miami-Dade County outside of the public school system. PAMM engages Miami's diverse community in stimulating arts experiences through an impressive array of school-based and outreach programming, including free family activities, art-making programs, summer camps, and more.
