Power of The Purse

 

Power of The Purse

In our region, 51% of children enter school unprepared to learn, not having the tools and/or knowledge to excel in the classroom. This is unacceptable.

As champions for change in Central Kentucky, United Way is raising awareness and support for Early Childhood Education programs in our community at Power of The Purse – a lady's event to be held the evening of Saturday, August 17th. In 2018, over 100 guests attended Power of The Purse, and collectively raised over $10,000 to benefit United Way of Central Kentucky initiatives to improve early childhood education programs across our community. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit education initiatives and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

During the evening, guests will join United Way at Thurman Landing to enjoy dinner, tastings, music, and a live auction. During the auction, gentlemen will take the stage for a fashion showcase of designer handbags (i.e. Kate Spade, Coach, Michael Kors, etc.) – all containing items donated by generous business partners. Examples of items included inside each purse may include tickets, jewelry, gift cards, wallets, and much more!
