On May 23, the Power of the Purse packed a punch for its third year, raising funds for The Boys and Girls Club of Thunder Bay Breakfast Club. The event auctions off designer handbags with proceeds donated the Breakfast Club, a program that promotes a healthy and nutritious lifestyle for its members. The glitter and glamour of the transformed Dominion Motors’ show room housed elegantly clad guests who were silently vying for one of thirty-eight handbags on display. Wine, scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, and the cutest little purse cookies kept bidders occupied between sneak peeks at the bidding sheets.
