Join us on Sunday, November 8, for Women United’s signature fundraising event, Power of the Purse. Instead of our traditional in-person event, we will be hosting our first-ever online buying and bidding shopping experience that includes 50+ trendy designer bags and 20+ silent auction purses, baskets and items. You can also help send underserved children to a Summer BOOST Learning Program and buy books and toys for preschool learning centers in Lake County’s low-income communities.100% of all proceeds and items purchased will support early learning programs in Lake County’s most vulnerable communities through our Little Kids Big Futures Fund.
Shop until you drop! You will find a variety of purse styles such as satchels, shoulder bags, and totes from well-known designers including Michael Kors, Coach, Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, Karl Lagerfeld and more. Maybe you are more interested in jewelry from Kendra Scott or artist David Parker, wine, spirits, chocolate, baby items or sports paraphernalia. There is something for everyone!
Buying and bidding will begin at 11:30 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. However, once you purchase your event ticket, you'll receive a unique event link that allows you immediate access to ‘window shop’. While the online shopping experience won't be active for purchases until November 8, you will be able to view all the available items so you will be ready when the event begins.
We are pleased to offer FREE contactless delivery of all items to your home if you live within 15 miles of Lake Forest.
If you purchased your ticket by Friday, October 16, you will be entered to win a Circle of Love Pendant in Sterling Silver by Helzberg Jewelers! The winner will be announced soon.
We will be back in 2021 with a bigger and better in-person Power of the Purse event. Until then, we will continue to count on our steadfast supporters and new friends to help ensure children are prepared for kindergarten and ready to succeed. Our community’s children have never needed us more! And we can’t thank you enough
