The inaugural Purses with Purpose event benefiting the Pearce Family Foundation and Dreamcatchers is taking place at The District at the Biltmore on Friday, August 18th at 5:00PM. Guests are invited to bring a purse (new or gently used) with a value of at least $200 for a purse swap, white elephant style. You might even walk out with a vintage designer handbag. Personally, I love a good white elephant exchange- especially when there is a lot of trash talking and stealing (all in good fun of course!) going on so I’m anticipating an action packed evening for a great cause! There will be drinks and hors d’oeuvres in addition to a raffle and the chance to mix and mingle with fellow purse loving philanthropists in the valley. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased below.
The Pearce Family Foundation Mission: The Pearce Family Foundation is a public 501 C3 non-profit charity that exists to provide needed financial assistance, mobilize resources and engage the community to support families with a child facing chronic or life-threatening illness. All proceeds raised benefit the Pearce Family Foundation’s main initiative, Angels Around Us of AZ, to help ease the burdens of daily life so these courageous families can focus solely on their child’s journey to get well.
