Thank you sincerely for your support of Purse Power 2015! The results are in, and the event was able to generate $10,000 for Family Promise of Gaston County. Thank you so much for making Purse Power a great event for our community! Check out our Purse Power Facebook Page (link above) for photos from the event.
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 focused on developing Stable Families in our community. One unexpected expense, like a car repair, can be enough to throw a family into turmoil. Purse Power’s proceeds will go towards getting homeless families, especially those with children,back on their feet and into a home. This year all proceeds from the event will go to help Family Promise of Gaston County, a local organization that works with local churches and faith organizations to provide homeless families with a place to live, and helps get them back on their feet and into a home. It truly is a program that focuses on giving a hand up, not a hand out.
Purse Power 2016 will be held on September 8th, 2016 place & time TBA.
