Brenda Franco, President & CEO of Franco’s Cocktail Mixes, shares that her philosophy is epitomized by Robert Kirby’s quote: “The mark of a true professional is giving more than you get.” Brenda is the Honorary Chair for the 2nd Annual “Diamonds & Dudes” to be held at the spectacular Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Resort Pier Top on Friday, September 23, 2011. This exquisite evening will benefit Women and Wishes, a non-profit organization that helps middle income women and their children transition through life’s challenges.

The evening will be dedicated to honoring and recognizing prominent philanthropic men for their outstanding contributions and commitment to make a difference in the lives of women and children in our community. This event will feature a live and silent auction, with dinner, dancing, and a tribute ceremony.

Ms. Franco says, “I am humbled, honored and excited to be asked to chair this event for Women and Wishes. I have the chance to give back, have fun, and raise money for a good cause at the same time.”

Women & Wishes’ operation is funded through socials, fundraising efforts and the generous contributions of corporate sponsors and the private sector.  On August 31, 2011, Allied Kitchen and Bath hosted a “Meet the Press” social which gave supporters a chance to meet the “Dudes” being honored at the 2nd Annual “Diamonds and Dudes.”
