Power of the Purse


Power of the Purse is a special event brought to you by United Way of Lewis County that celebrates the power of women supporting our community. When highly motivated and caring women come together, each with their own diverse backgrounds and life experiences, they can have a tremendous impact on other's lives and programs they are passionate about.

This year's event features a Kentucky Derby "Run for the Roses"  theme, the Woman of Distinction Award presentation, delicious hors d'oeuvres, and so much more, including a raffle full of beautiful purse packages and accessories.  You won't want to miss this special night!
