What would Power of the Purse be without a purse raffle?
As always, a collection of designer purses will be raffled off including Michael Kors, Coach, Kate Spade and many more.

Last year Power of the Purse raised over $42,000 for Graduation Coach and other local programs that support education and children in Stanislaus County. Please support WLC and our work in the community through your participation in this fun and inspiring event.
