Power of the Purse


To embrace the power and knowledge of women in our community, United Way of Lewis County will be hosting the 12th Annual Power of the Purse event on Tuesday, August 8th at 4:30pm at Riverside Golf Club in Chehalis.

Power of the Purse is a unique fundraising event accessorized with all the things women love - purses, accessories, spa packages, weekend getaways and more! It also signifies a social collaboration of women from all walks of life, coming together to commemorate the importance of women’s leadership and celebrating the power of women’s philanthropy and success in our community.

Through the Power of the Purse, United Way of Lewis County is building a group of dynamic leaders from all walks of life who are committed to igniting the power of women to advance the common good in our community.

From a raffle of fabulous prizes to a drawing for a designer purse, you and your friends will have the opportunity to enjoy great fashion and a night out on the town! 

United Way of Lewis County will be honoring a remarkable woman with the 5th Annual ‘Woman of Distinction’ Award!
