With the recent news that Kathy Ireland, CEO of Kathy Ireland Worldwide, is headlining this year’s United Way Women’s Leadership Luncheon, excitement and demand for tickets are building for the March 14 event.
$1.9 Billion Brand & Design Empire
Characterized by Forbes Magazine as the “prototype of model-turned-mogul,” Ireland leads a $1.9 billion brand and design empire that includes everything from home furnishings and fashion to publishing and destination properties. Ireland launched the company in 1993 at the height of her modeling career, which included three appearances on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
In recent years, Ireland has gained respect and recognition for her philanthropic efforts to improve education, reduce poverty and help families prosper – all of which align with United Way’s focus.
With demand for tickets and corporate tables already strong, another sell-out crowd is anticipated for the luncheon, which last year raised $180,000 to help local women and children in need.
