Published on Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Purses will be new or gently used, from the top name brands to exclusive local artist-made handbags. Every purse will go home with a new owner with a goal of raising $20,000 at the end of the evening.

“The Power of the Purse is a great event for attendees to make a positive difference in health care and the community,” said Kathy Sell, Power of the Purse Coordinator for the McLaren Northern Michigan Cheboygan Campus Guild. “Where else can you donate to a great cause and get a new purse?!”

The event will take place from 5:30 – 9 p.m. on Thursday, August 17, at Stafford’s Perry Hotel in downtown Petoskey. Purse viewing and silent auction is from 5:30 – 8 p.m. with a live auction starting at 8:15 p.m. Tickets are $40 each. Proceeds will benefit McLaren Northern Michigan Cheboygan Campus.
