Power of the Purse

Thanks to the more than 300 guests who attended and bid on 90+ purses to raise much needed funds in support of financial stability for women in Washtenaw County for Power of the Purse. We had the honor to celebrate Molly Dobson as our Woman of the Year. You can watch her speech on our Facebook page here.
