Practically Perfect! Power of the Purse Happens Nov. 1

Posted on

The 10th annual Power of the Purse will bring together generous people from across Jackson County for food, fun and the opportunity to support United Way’s work to end poverty.

Power of the Purse happens Friday, Nov. 1. It involves local businesses and individuals donating purses filled with items of all kinds. The purses are then auctioned off, with all proceeds going to a local nonprofit or program. This year’s funds will fuel United Way of Jackson County’s financial stability programs.

This year’s theme is based on Mary Poppins. The event features surprise guest models, a raffle, and other fun activities.

Power of the Purse will be held at the Country Club of Jackson. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the event begins at 6 p.m. Tickets are required for entry; you can purchase them by texting POPJXN to 41444, or call (517) 796-5120 for more information.
