Fill a Purse for Change and Race for Change at Convention 2018

2018 February 5

Fill a Purse for Change

We will continue our theme Fill a Purse for Change at the 2018 AAUW Ohio Silent Auction. We did very well this past year with this project. The idea behind the theme is to replace a basket with a purse and fill it with items for the auction or you can purchase a designer bag and auction it in the raffle as another option. I suggest that you provide one fabulous purse filled or not filled with a value of at least $150. If your branch would like to donate $150 instead of the purse, go for it.  Fundraising VP Deborah Wooldridge will provide the auction with a Luis Vuitton, Kate Spade or a Michael Kors bag to get things rolling. Remember that Vera Bradley bags are always a hit and catch the interest of bidders. TJ MAXX is a great place to shop for designer bags at a discounted price.

Race for Change Contest

We will also hold a Race for Change Contest among the Districts. As tickets are bought stickers will go up on a board throughout the conference and we will announce the District winner at the ending session. Many organizations do this at international, national and local conferences and this will let everyone have a chance to be philanthropic.  Let’s bring our checkbooks and support AAUW funds through giving! Our goal at the Conference this year is $ 3,000.  I know we can do it because we all want change for women and girls!If you need more information contact Fundraising VP Deborah Wooldridge at
