Power of the Purse
The Southeast Alabama Medical Center Foundation’s Philanthropic Women’s Society hosted its third annual Power of the Purse fundraising event at the Dothan Area Botanical Gardens, Wednesday January 25, 2017. More than 125 women attended the event featuring more than 30 designer handbags for silent and live auction to benefit healthcare programs and services offered by Southeast Alabama Medical Center. The handbags were donated by generous individuals and local retailers Dillard’s, Eagle Eye Outfitters and Southeast Alabama Medical CenterWomen’s Boutique . The goal of the event, sponsored by Capsouth Partners and Lewis – Smith Supply is to create awareness about the power of collective philanthropy and to increase involvement in the Philanthropic Women’s Society. Each year, members pool their annual donations and then vote on a project that needs funding at SAMC.
