Please note that the purses cannot contain any alcoholic products to comply with charity gaming laws. Gift cards are acceptable.

  • Each purse should be packed with goodies, and the value of the purse and content should be a minimum of $200.00
  • The purses are displayed during the luncheon and dinner.  We will be awarding a “People’s Choice Award” to one purse sponsor at both events, so you might be a winner, as well!
  •  Packed purses, including a detailed description of the contents, are due in the United Way office by TBD. Anyone who submits a purse for donation by TBD will be entered into a drawing to win FREE event tickets! 
  • We encourage you to shop locally and support our DeKalb County businesses!
