The Dinner event will feature a vibrant panel of women from different generations, to speak on their experiences throughout their lives. 



Each event will feature purses valued over $150, donated by local businesses and organizations. Raffle tickets for the purses will go on sale at beginning of each event as doors open. Both events will be catered by Broadway Grille, and will have delicious cocktails and great networking opportunities. 

The event was born to raise awareness for the work of the Branch County United Way (BCUW) in helping children embrace to learning at an early age. Through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, BCUW provides free books to children from birth to age 5. Last years event raised over $10,000 to help provide books to children birth to five to foster reading in the home.

Each event will also bring an opportunity to purchase tickets for the Power Purse as well.
