1 in 4 women experience domestic violence in her lifetime. The number 1 reason they can’t “just leave” is because they’re being financially abused. Because of this, YWCA Yakima created a “Power of the Purse” event, focused on financial empowerment for women and in partnership with Allstate’s “Purple Purse Challenge.”
Doors at Yakima Valley Museum will open at 4:00 pm, on Thursday, October 10, 2019. Guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres created by, The Fat Pastor, Shawn Niles, and a glass of complimentary wine as they have a first look at the evening’s purses. A silent auction, live auction, fashion show, networking, plus cash bar will entice and delight attendees!
Want to help? Consider donating a gently used or new purse, tote, handbag or wallet. Donations must be at YWCA Yakima office no later than Friday, October 4, 2019. Sponsorship opportunities are available, too.
