The Women’s Leadership Council of the United Way of the Lowcountry is having the great event called “Power of the Purse”. It will be Thursday, March 10th at 6 p.m. at Soiree in downtown Beaufort.
The organization will also be announcing who will receive the “Woman of the Year” Award. One hundred percent of the money raised goes into the “Breaking the Barriers to Education Fund” that helps school-aged children and their families. It exists to fill needs not currently covered by other agencies.
Join us for a fun night of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live music, silent and live auctions and much more!
Imagine somewhere; walking down a hallway of a local school is a student in need of help that goes beyond what might be available. We know this because we’ve had that student, or their parents, coming to us when they have exhausted all avenues of traditional resources available to them. Think about the impact a toothache can have on a child. They need the tooth extracted before his pain increases and his grades slip further. Or think of a mother who cannot afford the new tire that will help her get her children to school safely every day. These are just examples of how the United Way of the Lowcountry is able to step in – money for the dental procedure and paying for the tire come directly from our Helpline fund making it possible for some to overcome the financial barriers to making sure their children get a solid education.
Tickets for this event are $65 and are limited in number. For further information, please call 843-982-3040 or go to the website at www.uwlowcountry.org.
