Letter: The Power of the Purse

To the Editor:

Last year, Power of the Purse, a champagne brunch and auction presented by the Women’s Leadership Council of Granite United Way, raised $16,000 to support programs for women in the Upper Valley through Second Growth, Grafton County Drug Court and Second Wind Foundation.

This year, the event will be held on Sunday, Oct. 27, from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Wilder Center in Wilder. It is a fun (and delicious) opportunity to get a head start on holiday shopping for celebrities’ handbags (from Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and Gov. Maggie Hassan), gifts and more. There is something for everyone’s budget. Please reserve your tax-deductible tickets at www.guwpowerofthepurse.eventbrite.com or at the door.
