The Women’s Leadership Council is hosting the Power of the Purse on Mar. 10 at the Bull’s Eye Country Club.
The event will feature hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, a silent purse auction, and an opportunity to network and learn more about United Way of Inner Wisconsin’s Women’s Leadership Council and its initiative “Learning for Life.” There will be a variety of different purses to bid on. We encourage women to attend and bring along a friend for an enjoyable evening and help the community at the same time!
Proceeds from the event will support issues that affect women and children, including the “Learning for Life” initiative which ensures that all third graders are reading at a proficient level. The program matches children with reading mentors once a week.
Tickets are $25 advance; $30 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at HERE. They can also be purchased at River Cities Bank, the Inner Wisconsin United Way, and in the lobby of Aspirus Riverview Hospital.
For more information about the WLC, “Learning for Life” or the “Power of the Purse,” please call the United Way office at 715-421-0390. Bull’s Eye Country Club is located at 2800 Ridgewood Trial in Wisconsin Rapids.
