2015 Power of the Purse!
Friday, April 10, 2015

Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum
The plans for the 2015 Power of the Purse are underway, and

we hope you choose to be a part of this exciting philanthropic tradition!
The proceeds will support programming for women and children in DeKalb County.


  • The luncheon will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and will feature Lucinda Nord, Vice President of Public Policy for the Indiana Association of United Ways. She will be talking about early education at the state and local levels, and how each of us can help spread the message about the importance of early learning in our community!

  • The evening event will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will feature dinner, light entertainment, and another opportunity to hear from Lucinda. The dinner event is a great opportunity to relax enjoy time with friends!

  • Both events will include our popular purse activities! With your help, there will be many purses to entice and delight the attendees!

  • One purse from each event will also have a “golden ticket” in it, as we have done in the past. The lucky winners will receive another wonderful prize!

  • TI Automotive Group is once again sponsoring two POWER PURSES! The two winners will be announced at the evening event.


Enclosed are materials describing your sponsorship opportunities.
Please note that all Corporate Level Sponsors can purchase additional event tickets before they go on sale to the general public.
