The 7th Annual Power of the Purse fundraiser benefitting United Way of Midland's one-time Innovative Grants took place October 27th. The event featured: eight rounds of bingo to win designer purses, shopping from locally owned businesses, a wine pull, high-end purse raffle, and more. We also honored Kayleigh Dunn with the 2022 Women's United Award. We are so thankful for all of the sponsors, attendees, vendors, underwriters, and committee for making this event possible. Because of their generosity and support, we were able to raise over $69,400 for our 2022 Innovative Grants!
