Andrea Lauren Elegant Interiors Attended The
2020 Philanthropic Women of St. Joseph’s Annual Luncheon!
Philanthropic Women of St. Joseph’s is a leadership network of community-minded women who want to change and save lives in the Tampa Bay community by investing in collaboration with other women leaders. This phenomenal group of women works hard year-round to raise both awareness and the necessary funding for hospital equipment required to keep St. Joseph’s Hospital at the forefront of medical technology!
The Philanthropic Women of St. Joseph’s Annual Speaker’s Luncheon helps introduce this amazing group of women to new members and celebrates the accomplishments of the members and their support of women, children and families at St. Joseph’s hospitals. This 12th year yielded the highest contribution yet and brought some very special guests to join in celebration: Gayle Sierens from News Channel 8, the keynote speaker Cheryl Hines from HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, and her husband Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.!

Literally one of the most viewed faces in the community over the years, Gayle Sierens Martin is a well-known icon throughout the Tampa Bay area.
