Purses vs Poverty

Purses vs. Poverty was created to raise awareness about poverty in Dallas, to empower women in the vital role they play in philanthropy, and to raise funds for CitySquare. All proceeds directly support CitySquare’s 22 poverty-fighting programs. Those in attendance have the chance to win designer handbags, while at the same time, providing the opportunity for our neighbors to have a hand-up out of poverty. Purses vs. Poverty is the perfect girls night out or Mother’s Day celebration.

Purses vs. Poverty planning for 2020 is underway. The event will again be in May of next year. Check back for updates and announcements.
