Power of the Purse

Open your purse to reduce poverty in Lewis County...

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, weekend getaways and more! It also brings together women from all walks of life who want to make a difference and celebrate the power of women’s philanthropy in our community through United Way of Lewis County. 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! This year's fabulous theme is "Breakast at Tiffany's" - feel free to come in your favorite Little Black Dress!

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 HOPE and lifting families out of poverty in our own community.

By investing in United Way of Lewis County's vital poverty work, you are changing lives every day. YOU are an important piece of the puzzle in creating a healthy, vibrant Lewis County.

6th Annual 'Woman of Distinction’ Award!
