Purse Power is an annual event hosted by United Way of Gaston County. The event was created as a fundraiser and fellowship opportunity to raise money for causes that are important to women in our community. The highlight of the event is the raffle and auction of designer handbags and pocketbooks, as well as celebrity-owned purses and memorabilia.
This year’s platform will focus on preparing children for success in school. For many students, school breakfast and lunches are their most reliable food source. Purse Power’s proceeds will go towards ensuring hunger is not an obstacle to getting a good education. This year’s event will benefit Backpack Weekend Food Program, a local organization that works with community partners to provide children with nutritionally balanced meals to take home each weekend during the school year. It truly is a program that focuses on giving a hand up, not a hand out.
Purse Power 2018 will be held on March 15th, 2018 Gaston Country Club from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm.
Any questions about the event can be sent to Leigh Spach, or by phone at 704-864-4554 ext. 103
