MIAMI (WSVN) - United Way Miami held a ceremony honoring Darlene Perez and Jorge Perez for their work over the years in helping vulnerable families across Miami-Dade County.

The ceremony was held Wednesday to honor the couple and their foundation, The Perez Family Foundation.

A portion of United Way’s Annex building was named after the family.

The foundation has donated “nearly $2.9 million that was placed in United Way Miami’s endowment fund.”

“We are so grateful to Darlene and Jorge for their continued support and trust throughout the years,” said Joe Zubi, United Way Miami interim President & CEO. “Thanks to donors like them, we are able to continue fueling our mission of building a thriving and equitable community for all.”
