Power of the Purse

"As the purse is emptied, the heart is filled." -- Victor Hugo

Purse Power

The hearts fill to overflowing as hundreds of women gather each fall to support CEDARS kids through our Power of the Purse event. Special volunteers spend months “bagging” unique purses for our exclusive and very festive event. One-of-a-kind handbags, some designed by international designers and others chosen with everyday use in mind, tempt those in attendance to bid at both silent and live auctions. Victor Hugo’s observation—“as the purse is emptied, the heart is filled”—reminds us of the joy of caring for others. Open your purse to give, and you’ll discover far more satisfaction than you’ve ever known! Power of the Purse 2015 will be held on Thursday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Cornhusker Marriott. Save the date, tell your friends, and join us for a one-of-a-kind girls' night! Hundreds of stylish and unique handbags will be featured on auction. You won't want to miss it! Purchase your ticket today!
