Power of the Purse raises awareness about the importance of economic independence for women. Over the years, the event has raised more than a million dollars to support Girls Inc. Their mission is to inspire all girls ages 6-18 to be strong, smart and bold. Each year they choose a dozen local women to be "purse-o-nalities", who along with a designer and a Girls Inc. girl, create one-of-a-kind purses. Elizabeth Nye, Executive Director of Girls Inc., and Mekdes, a Girls Inc. council member, joined us to show off a few of the creations for this year's event:

  • Power of the Purse
  • Friday, April 13
  • 4:30pm Boutique Sale
  • 7:00 Runway & Auction
  • Portland Hilton
