YWCA Central Alabama's annual Purse & Passion is the YW's largest fundraiser. It raises more than $600,000 each year to support domestic violence services; child and youth development programs; and safe, affordable housing.
With the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have found ourselves in an unprecedented and difficult time. Sadly, for many members in our community, home may not be a safe place to shelter. Calls to the YWCA crisis line have DOUBLED in recent weeks. YWCA Central Alabama is not closed to victims of domestic abuse. We are answering crisis calls, and we need your help to spread our mission.
The 21st annual Purse & Passion is our first to be hosted virtually. Watch the livestream at 11:30 a.m. on April 30, 2020. Early birds are welcome at 11 a.m. Join our table captains, who are members of the YWCA Board of Directors and the community-at-large, and their guests. Learn how you can help meet the needs of those the YW serves.
This fundraising event helps us help women, children, and families chart a course for a brighter future. There is no cost to view the livestream, but we hope you'll donate to support this fundraiser. Mark your calendar and tune in!
