Switchboard event honors brightest stars of Miami-Dade

On November 9, Switchboard Miami will celebrate Miami-Dade’s All Stars, the hardworking nonprofits and unsung heroes who make a critical difference in the lives of others every single day. 

You are invited to join this important celebration and get to know the true stars in our community.

Saving lives and helping others goes on 24/7 in Miami. Tens of thousands of your neighbors make their living making a difference in our community. Now is your opportunity to meet them and celebrate the important work they do.

Some of them work and volunteer at Switchboard, one of Miami’s oldest and most enduring non-profit organizations. Since 1968, Switchboard has been answering the call for help and connecting all people in need with community resources 24/7. Last year, Switchboard answered 178,271 calls from youth, adults and families seeking help.

Switchboard manages Miami-Dade County’s only comprehensive HELPpages – over 5,000 programs and services. It is their mission to connect the community to the organizations in the HELPpages. Last year, Switchboard made 170,434 referrals to help individuals connect to local organizations.

“Because we connect people and services, we have the opportunity to know and work with Miami-Dade County’s many agencies. It’s an honor to host this First Annual All Star Non-Profit Awards Luncheon and shine the spot light on some of the great work going on here in Miami,” says Switchboard’s Chief Executive Director Catherine Penrod. “It’s important to recognize and celebrate good people and organizations, because without them, we could not do our job helping callers.”

Reserve your seat. Secure your table. Become a sponsor. And celebrate the true “All Stars”. Call Amy Crismond at Switchboard today at (305) 358-1640x127or visit
