Join The Women’s Fund for the 2018 Power of the Purse© on Thursday, April 26th from 10:30am-1pm. The event will take place in the Karl Dean Ballroom at The Music City Center. We are thrilled to have Mia Hamm as our guest speaker, for our 20th anniversary celebration of Power of the Purse©.
After 17 years, two World Championships, two Olympic Gold Medals, and near unparalleled success as a marketing icon, Mia Hamm retired from professional soccer in 2004 as not only the best women’s soccer player in history but also as one of the most important and recognizable female figures in the history of sport. Hailed by ESPN as the greatest female athlete of the past 40 years, Mia was the youngest woman to ever appear in a match for the US Senior Squad at just 15 years old in 1987, and during her illustrious career playing for the national team shattered a litany of American records, most notably those for international goals (158) and assists (144).
