Power of the Purse is a community fundraising event presented by United Way of Olmsted County's Women United – a giving circle of women leadership contributors whose collective, caring power is building a healthier, stronger community. This very popular event returns for its 14th year to once again improve lives of children and youth in Olmsted County on Tuesday, June 11, 2019!

This year's keynote speaker features Sue Klebold, Author of the New York Times bestseller A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy, and advocate for mental health. Sue Klebold became a passionate advocate for mental health awareness, brain research and intervention following a national tragedy. Her son, Dylan Klebold, was one of the two gunmen responsible for the Columbine High School shootings of April 20, 1999 in Littleton, Colorado.

Please join us for a delicious luncheon and impressive purse auction, and help in the efforts to fight for the education, health, and financial stability of every person in our community. United Way works collaboratively with programs and opportunities to ensure that children and youth in our community reach their potential in school and the community. Proceeds benefit United Way programs that help children and youth with community connections, positive learning environments and positive role models which all contribute toward good mental health.
