Power of the Purse fundraiser in Rib Mountain auctions off women's items

RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -- Hundreds of women helped raise money for a cause Monday night in Rib Mountain.

The United Way group called "Women in Action" hosted its Power of the Purse event.

Purses, accessories, and other items were auctioned off.

The money raised helps low-income women. Organizers say more than 200 women showed up at Monday's fundraiser.

"Women are a powerful group so we like to bring them together to make sure that all the women are in a comfortable situation, help them shine and help them help many single moms that are in the area," said Christie Terkelson, the chair of Power of the Purse.

Some of the groups the money will go to include Rebecca's Closet, Christmas for Mommies, and Project Step Up.
