Power of the Purse

4th Annual Power of the Purse Luncheon

October 25, 2017 at the midland country club

2017 Guest Speaker- Sonia Manzano

We are hosting a luncheon at Midland Country Club, which will feature guest speaker Sonia Manzano. You know Sonia as “Maria” on Sesame Street, where she played a lovable mom and friend to millions of children (and puppets) for decades. Sonia won a 2016 Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award, had garnered 15 Emmys for writing children’s television scripts, and has written critically-praised books for children and young adults. Her love of children’s education and her personal history with this issue are powerful.

What is Power of the Purse?

Power of the Purse provides a collaborative forum for women of all ages who want to significantly improve the quality of life in the Midland community through leadership giving, advocacy and volunteering. It’s about joining with like-minded women to be a strong voice and make a difference in meeting needs in the community. This year’s event is benefiting United Way of Midland’s Community Impact initiative: funding for MISD Literacy Liaison staff members.
