Power of the Purse


To embrace the power and knowledge of women in our community, United Way of Lewis County will be hosting the 13th Annual Power of the Purse event on Tuesday, August 7th at 4:30pm at the new Centralia College TransAlta Commons.

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. 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!

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.


United Way of Lewis County will be honoring a remarkable woman with the
6th Annual 'Woman of Distinction’ Award!


$30/person to attend
(Tickets can be purchased online beginning mid-April.)
