Sold-Out Power of the Purse Raises $49.5k for Early Literacy Programs
On November 5, 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, an assortment of games to win purses, jewelry, wristlets and much more. This year’s event raised $49,500, which is a 25% increase over last year.
Power of the Purse raises funds for critical early literacy programs that ensure a strong and successful future for Lake County’s most vulnerable children. 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 are ready to succeed.
