The event will feature over 200 new and gently used purses and jewelry for sale along with raffle baskets and a purse drive to benefit the 501(C)3 charity.
There is no entry fee to the function, however patrons are encouraged to bring a donation of purses, jewelry, or hygiene products. Each donor will receive a free “Pop-Up” Fundraiser tote bag for supporting the charity drive
“Our first “Pop-Up” fundraiser was such a huge success that we will now feature the unique marketplace style function twice a year,” explains Patricia Brusha President of Purse-Impressions Charity Boutique who is planning a 3rd event in March 2022.
Purse-Impressions is on a mission to provide fresh start purses and backpacks to women and men celebrating their graduation from rehab. They want those graduates to leave with dignity, hope and the knowledge that someone cares. In less than 2 years the charity has donated almost 3000 purses and backpacks to recovering addicts in AZ, CO, FL, DC and Canada
“I founded Purse-Impressions to transform the tragedy and heartbreak of losing my daughter Courtney to addiction into inspiration and compassion for others who are overcoming addiction in their own lives,” said Patricia Brusha. “Before Courtney left us, she told me she didn’t like that women who graduated from rehab often left with their personal items in a plastic bag. She wanted those women to hold their heads high, to be proud of their amazing accomplishment and to leave with something that showed their value. This organization was her dream, and I am carrying it forward and expanding its reach to also serve men.”
