Grant Cardone Foundation Raises Millions of Dollars During 10x Impact Gala

The Grant Cardone Foundation raised $2 million during its inaugural 10X Impact Gala last month at the JW Marriott Turnberry Resort and Spa in Aventura. The Grant Cardone Foundation is a national nonprofit organization established to provide funding to enhance youth programs across the U.S. The evening was hosted by Grant Cardone (pictured), an entrepreneur, best-selling author, star of Discovery Channel’s Undercover Billionaire and founder of the 10X Movement.

Gala event guests included entrepreneurs from all over the country, including retired NBA star and Hall-of-Famer, Alonzo Mourning and world-renowned DJ Irie. The Grant Cardone Foundation’s mission entails providing mentoring, financial literacy education and entrepreneurial development to at-risk adolescents in underserved communities, especially children without father figures in their lives. 

“It is my personal goal to deliver a program that gives kids and young adults, from underserved and at-risk communities around the world, the opportunity to create the life they want, not the life the system makes them think they have to settle for,” Cardone says, CEO of the Grant Cardone Foundation. 

The event featured a live auction and a thought-provoking presentation by Cardone and Mourning, as well as presentations from Chief Operating Officer Sheri Hamilton and 10X Stages Co-founder, Pete Vargas. The Gala sponsors included Platinum and Presenting Sponsor Mark Naaman of Allegiance Gold, which donated $250,000 to the Grant Cardone Foundation; Diamond Sponsor Greg Kennedy from PowerhouseCryptos.com; Premier Sponsors, Dom Del Monaco from Red Rock Industries and Magda Khalifa from Triangle Fragrances.

After losing his father at a young age, Cardone witnessed how many of society’s most pressing challenges comes from a lack of father involvement in children’s lives. It can directly impact economic welfare, production, the erosion of human capital, social exclusion, crime and social instability. Cardone established his charity to help those who may need life and career guidance, just as he once did. 

The global initiative funded at the Impact Gala event was the newly launched 10X Hub program in South Africa. The 10X Hub provides financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and mentorship programs to help level the playing field, fight poverty at its core, and create a lasting LEGACY (Leading, Entrepreneurial, Growth and Commitment to Youth education) in improvised communities. It features an entrepreneurial development center, a collaborative space and a 10X mentorship hub.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
