Together with the Royal
About our philanthropic initiative
Launched in March 2019, TOGETHER WITH THE ROYAL is The Royal Poinciana Plaza’s philanthropic initiative for female empowerment and female entrepreneurship.
Whether through monetary and in-kind donations, scholarships, or community partnerships, The Royal Poinciana Plaza concentrates their community outreach to organizations with a female focus.
With a heart for the community, this initiative is celebrated publicly on March 8, International Women’s Day. The event, which is open to the community, features a panel discussion, fashion presentation celebrating the diversity of women, sips + bites, music and more.
The event is in collaboration with community organizations. Past partners have included Impact the Palm Beaches, Dress for Success Palm Beaches, Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County and Junior League of the Palm Beaches. As a part of the initiative The Royal Poinciana Plaza makes separate donations to each organization, which includes a Women in Business scholarship to one deserving student awarded in June.
“I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by strong and supportive women in all aspects of my life. My family was shaped by compassionate matriarchs and almost every boss throughout my career has been a woman.” Lilly Leas Ferreira, General Manager of The Royal Poinciana Plaza said. “Now as a mother and as a general manager, I have the privilege of helping to shape the next generation of female leaders. The impact of empowering women is undeniable, and I’m honored to launch The Royal Poinciana Plaza’s TOGETHER initiative focused on female empowerment and entrepreneurship. Together, with some of our area’s most influential women, we will be raising support and lending a voice to four local female-inspired nonprofits.”
