A force-majeur behind the bulk of Miami’s club scene from infamous ‘90’s Club Warsaw to today’s top-tier LiV at Fontainebleau, Michael Capponi’s passion outside of providing exotic entertainment for his clientele is healing the world. First exposed to philanthropic outreach when he flew to Kosovo in 1999 on a humanitarian aid mission, Capponi knew he had found his higher calling. He understood that by using his influence and connections for the greater good, he could raise awareness to the masses. And so it was during a visit to earthquake-stricken Haiti in 2010 that he founded Global Empowerment Mission, an organization responsible for both organizing and participating in countless world disaster relief tours, including post-Irma aid to the ravished island of Puerto Rico. Leveraging the power of social media, and celebrity friends like Reality Star turned Entrepreneur Bethany Frankel, Capponi sent out a call-to-action to his followers, and they responded! In less that 24 hours, they had filled a 100,000-sq.-ft. Wynwoood warehouse with Hurricane Maria relief supplies to help those most in need throughout The Caribbean; GlobalEmpowermentMission.org.
