Charity Counter

2019 Charity: Operation Sacred Trust – Disrupting Veteran Homelessness in South Florida

Join MPIF at the PM Management Summit as we compile care packages that will be distributed to the men and women who have bravely served our country and are now in need of our help.

Your contributions will go towards purchasing the products to fill the care packages that will be assembled on-site at the conference. Not only will your donations help us fill the bags with all of the necessities, it will allow us to create even more care packages so that we can help hundreds of homeless veterans.

Each care package averages $8.00. Our goal is to collect $8,000 so that we can prepare and fill 1,000 care packages to Operation Sacred Trust. Your donation does matter and we look forward to your contribution. 

To make your donation, please contact Diane Haggerty, CMP at dhaggerty@mpif.org or by calling 609-452-7700 x103.




Intercontinental Miami

InterContinental Miami

At the InterContinental Miami, vibrant art, innovative businesses, and tropical life converge into the premier luxury experience. Built around Henry Moore’s famous sculpture, “The Spindle,” the luxury Miami hotel lies along the downtown waterfront, with the city’s business centers and famous beaches both within easy reach.

In 1982, the InterContinental Miami was built in an untraditional way. Instead of building the hotel, then decorating it, they started with an art sculpture. Henry Moore’s 18-foot, 70-ton Spindle sculpture, made of travertine marble, was the focal point that the lobby was created around. Pietro Belluschi, the world-famous architect who designed the 34-story hotel created the Grand Lobby to be an elegant entrance, with its Italian marble slabs and precious African wood complementing The Spindle.
