Power of Purse raises funds for grants

The Women Givers of Northeast North Carolina, a program of the Northern Albemarle Community Foundation, hosted its 6th annual Power of the Purse event late last year. The sold-out event included an auction of donated purses from local businesses and patrons, a wine tasting by Sanctuary Vineyards and a fashion show by Honey & Hive Boutique, Kris Cass Collections and Shay Leslie Boutique.  Close to $5,000 was raised for grantmaking in 2015!
