Power of the Purse

5th Annual Power of the Purse

April 2, 2020 at the bush convention center

ABOUT THE EVENT
On Thursday, April 2, 2020, United Way of Midland will be hosting its fifth annual Power of the Purse event at the Bush Convention Center. Our Power of the Purse event will feature shopping with locally owned businesses, 5 rounds of bingo with multiple opportunities to win a designer bag, raffles for two high end designer bags, dinner and deserts, and more. As we enjoy a night of fun and games, United Way will honor Lori Wesley with our first ever Women’s United award. 100% of the net proceeds from Power of the Purse go directly to United Way of Midland’s Innovative Grants. 
 
THE POWER OF YOUR PURSE
Each year, United Way of Midland opens grant applications to local nonprofits for one-time funding for projects and specific programs that help improve the health, education, or self-sufficiency of Midlanders. Since 2013, United Way of Midland volunteers have granted over $352,492 to help strengthen our community through projects such as refurbishing senior housing with Midland Parker Place, replacing soiled mattresses at Safe Place of the Permian Basin, and remodeling a room with Basin Dream Center allowing them to double the number of beds available for girls aging out of foster care. The power of your purse can help change the story of many Midlanders through United Way!
