The YW Needs YOU!
2021 Purse & Passion Table Captain Sign Up Is Underway!
Each April, YWCA Central Alabama hosts Purse & Passion, the largest fundraiser for the YW in which critical funds are raised that support all YW programs and services including quality child and youth development programs for children of homeless and low-income families; safe, affordable housing; and domestic violence services. Purse & Passion Table Captains are the driving force behind this event, sharing the mission of the YW with their friends and family by inviting them to attend the Luncheon and donate to the cause.
The YW is so grateful for the support that you have provided as volunteers and donors of in-kind goods and services. As difficult as 2020 has been, 2021 is shaping up to be an even bigger challenge for our organization and those that we serve, and we need your support as Purse & Passion Table Captains to raise crucial funds to ensure our services reach those in our community who need our help the most.
The 2021 Purse & Passion Luncheon will be livestreamed online at purseandpassion.swell.gives on Thursday, April 29, 2021
This year, we are excited to announce that we have TWO WAYS to participate as a Table Captain!
- Virtual Captain- Raise awareness and funds for the Purse & Passion mission by inviting your friends and family to your virtual Purse & Passion table. Each guest will receive an invite to tune in to the Purse & Passion program virtually to hear the inspiring YWCA client stories and donate towards your table goal. To participate as a Virtual Captain, CLICK HERE
- Host at Home Captain- NEW! This year, instead of hosting a virtual table for Purse & Passion program, you can have the luncheon come to YOU! Host friends and family in your home or in your yard, and tune in together to the virtual Purse & Passion program to support the YW safely, yet still together! The YW will be working with local partners to offer discounts on lunch options for you and your guests. To participate as a Host at Home Captain, CLICK HERE
