Power of the Purse is Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest’s biggest event of the year, packed with a POP Up Shop, live auction fashion show, dinner, and much more!
For more than 13 years, Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest has had the pleasure of hosting our annual gala, Power of the Purse. In the months prior to the event, many of Portland’s most notable leaders, artists, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists work with local purse designers to create a one-of-a-kind handbag. Each piece is a unique work of art that will be auctioned off during a live fashion show presenting the fabulous handbags, the creative individuals who inspired the design, and the bright stars of the evening: our Girls Inc. girls! With extensive media coverage and notable ‘Purse-o-nality’ participants over the years, Power of the Purse has positioned itself as one of the most innovative and talked about events in our community.
