Name: TFAE Purses and Promises: A Girls' Night Out for Children's Literacy Fundraiser
Date: December 4, 2020
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM CST
Event Description:
The event will feature gently used designer and brand name purses for sale and silent auction, while guests can also enjoy shopping pop up shops from local boutiques and door prizes. Delicious hors d’oeuvres and wine are included with ticket purchase.

All proceeds from the event help fund the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library reading program in Terrebonne Parish. Through this program, registered local children receive one age-appropriate book every month until their fifth birthday at no cost to their families.

The venue will abide by state guidelines for COVID-19 including encouraging guests to wear masks, maintaining 50% of max capacity, and providing sanitizing stations. The silent auction will be featured online, so those attending in person can bid from their devices and those wishing to “attend” from home can still bid on the best purses.

TFAE has funded more than 275,000 books to nearly 10,000 local children through the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Terrebonne Parish since adopting the program in 2012.  With approximately 3,300 children currently enrolled, TFAE funds the program at approximately $80,000 a year. All proceeds from Purses and Promises event help to fund the program for Terrebonne Parish.
