‘Purses for a Purpose’ raises money for Women’s Fund

Area women got the chance to do some shopping for a good cause Thursday night.

The Women’s Fund of Greater La Crosse held its second annual “Purses for a Purpose” event at the Court Above Main.

50 one-of-a-kind and designer purses were up for auction, with all of the proceeds going to Women’s Fund programs across the area.

Last year’s fundraiser raised a total of 5-thousand dollars. This year, the Women’s Fund was hoping to collect 75-hundred dollars.
