More About Power of the Purse

October is Domestic Violence awareness month and Every Woman’s Place is hosting the 3rd Annual Power of the Purse – Changing Purses Changes Lives, to increase awareness in the community about the issues of domestic violence.  Regardless of age, economic status, educational background, race, religion, or nationality, 1 in every 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.  This violence causes physical injury, psychological trauma, and sometimes death, with the effects crossing multiple generations.

The Power of the Purse event will raise awareness and funds to support Every Woman’s Place and survivors of domestic and sexual violence in West Michigan. Donated items from community members and supporters will be included in silent and live auctions which will feature purses, jewelry and other accessories.  Together, as women change their purses, they will be changing the lives of hundreds of survivors, simply with “the power of the purse”.

Sponsorships are now available.  For more information, please contact Amanda at 231-759-7909 ext. 237.
