Power of the Purse

Power of the Purse Event to Support Early Childhood Literacy Programs

Power of the Purse save the date


Power of the Purse is an exciting event that brings together women from throughout southwest Minnesota with a commitment to our youngest learners. All money raised will be used for local initiatives that help effectively prepare young children in our area for kindergarten. Proceeds from this event support efforts such as Imagination Library, Stuff the Bus school supply distribution, Born Learning Trails, and more!

The 2022 Power of the Purse event was held on Thursday, May 5th at the Mercantile at Bello's, Marshall. The evening was fun for all in attendance and included: fabulous purses, silent auction, delicious food, ladies' night out and an investment in early childhood education and literacy.  

NEW THIS YEAR:  Those who couldn't attend in person were able to see a full list of Silent Auction items and bid online up until closing time of the auction.
