If there’s one thing I love, it’s networking and meeting people from the community! When mixed with a charitable fundraiser, it doesn’t get any better than that! Such is the case for the wonderful event that I’ll be attending tonight-Power of the Purse.
When I met with Jeanne Foskett, 2010-2011 President of the Women’s Fund of El Paso, for headshots (page 16), we had some time to chat and learn about each other. Power of the Purse occurs every 18 months, and the goal is to fundraise for scholarships for single mothers. To do so, celebrities have donated luxurious bags by Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Chloe, Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Judith Leiber, Jimmy Choo, Prada, Valentino, and the list goes on and on, to auction off tonight (silent auction). It’s clear that many people have worked tirelessly to prepare for the event. I’ve heard many great things about the event, and I am very much looking forward to it!
I encourage you to come tonight. It sounds like it will be a very “sexy and the city” vibe. I’ll be hanging out with Kara while enjoying food and drinks from GeoGeske and listening to the sounds of DJ Christopher Ferris of Cedar Entertainment. Tickets will be sold at the door for $75. The event is being held at the Union Depot in downtown El Paso.
