On November 5th, our Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) held their 12th annual Power of the Purse fundraising event at the Royal Melbourne Country Club in Long Grove. Over 200 women joined together for an afternoon filled with a champagne brunch and an assortment of games to win purses, jewelry, wristlets and much more.
The Women’s Leadership Council of United Way of Lake County is a group of 90+ women with a common commitment to making a difference through philanthropy, leadership and volunteerism. As women who give at the Leadership Level of $1000 or more, this group uses the power of their time, talent and resources to ensure children are prepared for kindergarten and ready to succeed.
The event raises funds for critical early literacy programs that ensure a foundation for strong and successful academic futures in Lake County. As of 2017, nearly $235,000 has been granted to worthy nonprofits. Power of the Purse ensures that more children receive the support they need to be prepared for kindergarten and ready to succeed.
