“The Power of the Purse” fundraiser at the Portland Art Museum
“The Power of the Purse” fundraising dinner at the Portland Art Museum on March 9th was a benefit for GirlsInc. The mission of this incredible organization is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold.
Cindy Thompson Event Productions explains what the fundraising dinner is about: “The Power of the Purse is not your standard fundraising dinner. In the months prior the event, Portland’s most notable leaders, artists, entrepreneurs and philanthropists worked with local purse designers creating the handbag of their dreams.
Each piece was a unique work of art that was auctioned off during a live fashion show showcasing the fabulous handbags, the creative individuals who inspired their design, and the bright stars of the evening-Girls Inc. girls The Power of the Purse auction and dinner raises money to support Girls Inc., Portland’s local non-profit that supports girls in need to recognize their potential, honor their resiliency, and believe in themselves.”
Cindy asked if I could donate flower purses for the bistro tables; it was my pleasure to be able to contribute to this event.
A huge thank you to Joni Shimabukuro for the pictures!
