For the fourth year in a row, we are a participating boutique for the Girls Inc. of NW Oregon'
s fundraiser, Power of the Purse
. On Friday, March 14th
, attendees have the exclusive opportunity to shop an impressive lineup of retailers
including Will Leather Goods, Consigning Women Handbags and our neighborhood pals, Aleda Fitness, before settling in for dinner, a live auction, and runway presentation that's sure to have you using your best "America's Next Top Model" one-liners.
With a mission to "inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold
," Girls Inc. serves 125,000 girls ages 6-18 in the United States and Canada. Our Portland affiliate has been active since 1998, and our relationship with the organization began with a simple ask. As as female business owner and designer/maker of items that are intended to make women of all ages feel strong, smart & bold, when Betsy was initially approached to participate in their annual fundraiser, it was an easy "yes!" Check out their blog post about betsy & iya
as well as other Purse-O-Nalities (<-- yes, I love it!). Just think about it... our collective purse powers combined could really make a difference in the lives of girls in our area. If you're looking for something fun to kick off your weekend, buy a ticket
, have a drink and get your shop on.. all for a good cause! Cheers, Anna ***Song of the Moment: Bag Lady
