Making a fashion statement – and helping Bright Futures for Youth

… raised $8,500 in the raffle alone – a record – and will be providing grand totals soon. 

A great time was had by all so stay tuned for the March 2024 date.

Bright Futures for Youth’s much-anticipated Power of the Purse event on March 29, 2023 brings hundreds of community members together to connect over lunch – and bid on or enter a raffle for classic, chic, fashionable and trend-setting purses donated by businesses and individuals.

Giving back has never looked so good.

The dollars raised benefit Bright Futures for Youth and its three programs – The Friendship Club, NEO and SAFE, a program for children and young adults experiencing housing instability.

Our programs offer after-school programs and life-skills lessons to ensuring access to health care and counseling. We also provide safety-net services for youth, such as clothes and healthy meals.

Many thanks to our Power of the Purse sponsors (see the list, below) who make the event possible – and help raise money for our year-round programs.

Together, we are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of young people who participate every month in Bright Futures for Youth programs.
