The 14th annual Power of the Purse will be held Thursday, April 4th at 6:30 p.m. at The Anderson Arts Center. The event is a live and silent purse auction hosted by Women United of The United Way of Anderson County to benefit teen pregnancy prevention efforts.
The auction features purses from designers such as Kate Spade, Coach, Tory Burch, Brahmin and more. Additionally, the purses are combined into packages which include massages, gift certificates to restaurants, jewelry and much more.
The success of this event has been invaluable to funding the teen pregnancy prevention programs in Anderson County School Districts Three and Four. Today, there is a teen pregnancy prevention program in all five of the Anderson County public school districts.
With the assistance of the efforts led by the United Way of Anderson County, the teen birth rate which peaked in 1991 has dropped 60 percent.
