Purse & Passion is the YWCA’s single largest fundraiser, having raised more than $5 million since 2000. Last year, the YW celebrated the 16th anniversary of Purse & Passion. For more than a century, the YWCA has been responding to the needs of women, children, and families. Purse & Passion helps to fund the YW’s initiatives, including child development programs for homeless children, affordable housing for families, a broad array of domestic violence services and social justice programs.
This luncheon benefits KIDS Korner, the YW’s nationally-accredited child development program for children of homeless families. Table hosts will invite 400 of their friends, co-workers and neighbors for a day of friend-raising and fundraising. Last year's luncheon raised more than $100,000 for KIDS Korner, which helps homeless children learn, play and re-discover their self worth.
