2018 The Power of the Purse® Luncheon

Mia Hamm will serve as the guest speaker for the 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).

Mia has continued to serve as an inspiration to young girls looking to rise to the pinnacle of the sporting world. She has maintained an active presence within the soccer community and has served as an outspoken advocate for Title IX and gender equality across sporting lines, all the while cementing her status as the face of not merely a sport but rather of an entire generation of female athletes through her Foundation. Mia is also part owner of the new Los Angeles Football Club.

All proceeds of The Power of the Purse© support the grantmaking potential of The Women’s Fund.  Since its inception in 1994, The Women’s Fund has made grants totaling more than $1.4 million to programs supporting women & girls in Middle Tennessee.
