FORT LAUDERDALE (October, 2014) – Koncept Events (KE) co-founder Hillary Smith, CMP, CSEP has accepted the nomination to join as a member of the exclusive Broward Pulse Committee (Pulse). The invite-only committee is an active arm of the American Heart Association of Greater Miami Fort Lauderdale (AHA) comprised of prominent South Florida young professionals known for their philanthropic efforts.
Smith’s passion for creating industry leading events at KE extends to her charitable efforts on both global and local levels. Over the past 14 years, Smith has committed her time and resources to communities around the world working with Fortune 500 and 100 companies ranging from Apple, Google and Nike to Citigroup and Standard & Poors throughout the US and Caribbean. Also realizing the need in her local community, Smith and KE have initiated school supply drives with Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Broward County along with the upcoming activation “KE Drive to Feed” which supports one of their largest client’s crusade to help provide meals to underfed children via Feeding America South Florida.
Since its creation in 2011, Pulse has proven to be an incredibly powerful force, fundraising over $400,000 for prevention and the local fight against cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Members are chosen based upon their ability to inspire, educate and dedication to philanthropy. Pulse is strengthened by their committee members’ ability to enact their network of friends and colleagues to benefit the mission of the AHA.
“I am so thrilled and honored to be a part of this prestigious group and look forward to taking a very active role in making a difference,” says Smith.
