MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) In honor of this year’s United Way of Midland’s ‘Power of the Purse’ event, we are giving away one free ticket to an evening of glamour, shopping and a chance to win a designer purse at the dinner.
It all takes place on April 2nd at the Bush Convention Center.
To be considered, you will need to post your video on either your Facebook or Instagram main page by midnight on March 19, 2020. Entries must include four things:
- Your name
- An explanation of what your purse means to you
- Tag Facebook and Instagram @UWMidlandTX, and #PowerOfThePurse.
The winner of the social media ticket giveaway will be announced on March 20.
100% of the net proceeds from ‘Power of the Purse’ go directly to United Way of Midland’s Innovative Grants focused on strengthening the community through various projects. These grants have helped local organizations like Safe Place of the Permian Basin replace soiled mattresses and a commercial refrigerator and even remodeling a room with Basin Dream Center giving more girls aging out of foster care a chance at a bright future.
Stay tuned for upcoming stories this month about Safe Place of the Permian Basin and Basin Dream Center.
