 Sponsored by Women United for Early Childhood

 

The 4th annual Power of the Purse was held on Tuesday, May 3, 2011.  It was a great evening that included:  a silent auction of unique and extraordinary purses; delicious food; and a message of renewal - all in support of early literacy.


Our guest speaker was Elizabeth Hagen, author of Now is Your Time:  The Steps to be Fearless and Extraordinary.  Ms. Hagen's presentation was highlighted by several important points, including:


  • Stopping the blame game and start taking active responsibility
  • Shaking off the road blocks and watching your success soar
  • Starting to enjoy the small moments and seeing your life have more meaning
  • Standing out, not alone
  • Shedding old rules
  • Serving yourself first and you'll be in a better place to help others; and
  • Surrounding yourself with supportive people

 

Proceeds from the event will support the work of Women United for Early Childhood, which works to make a difference by  helping to equip families and caregivers with the tools needed so all the children in our area can be prepared to succeed when they start school. 

 

Following are a few photographs from the event
