Are you or your company interested in donation a purse to be auction at the 2016 Power of the Purse?! The Women’s Leadership Council could not do all the things we do without the generosity of women and businesses throughout our community. Your donation helps us make our event successful and raise money for a few wonderful organizations. Find the complete donation form HERE!
This year’s “Arabian Nights” themed event of fun and entertainment will be held on Friday, November 4, 2016, at the Country Club of Jackson. The evening will include a silent auction of themed purses, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a surprise-filled live auction!
100% of the auction proceeds will benefit the in-school mentoring program of Energizing Education (EE). EE’s program is a collective approach to promoting literacy by providing in-school mentoring coupled with family engagement activities aimed at reinforcing the need to nurture reading skills in the home. The goal of the program is to ensure that all students read at or above grade level by 4th grade.
You can help us make a difference in the lives of the women and children right here in our community by donating a purse. We ask that all purses be at least a $100 value.
Feel free to email WLC@UWJackson.org or call Melissa Callison at 392-1004 if you have any questions.
