Power of the Purse

November 18, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

2022 Power of the Purse event will be held Friday, November 18 at the Downtown Reno Ballroom.  The virtual raffle was a great success and we are looking forward to being back in person for this event!

We celebrate what is inside each woman’s purse- the economic building power that she brings to our local community. Women make up more than half of the U.S. population, and control or influence 85% of consumer spending (Source, Forbes 2019). Our 1000+ guests come to the Reno Ballroom each year to shop local vendors, enjoy food, beverages, and
our famous high-end purse raffle. Your support of Power of the Purse allows Nevada Women’s Fund to continue Empowering the Woman who carries the purse!  This premier holiday shopping event raises money to support the Nevada Women’s Fund’s scholarship and grant programs. Since 1983 Nevada Women’s Fund has awarded over $9 million in academic scholarships for women in Northern Nevada and awarded community grants supporting women and children. Our academic scholarships support local women to obtain higher education, resulting in them achieving financial security.


General admission tickets – $75.  Ticket includes: Access to the event from 6-9pm,  2 drink tickets, appetizers and access to shop from our select vendors.

VIP tickets – $150.  Ticket includes: Early admittance at 5pm for a VIP champagne and shopping hour, with first access to shop from our select vendors, a VIP hour purse raffle, 2 drink tickets and appetizers.

You may purchase tickets here.


We are now accepting vendor applications through  September 16. Please visit this link to submit an application. Vendor selection notifications will be sent out by October 7.


We have several sponsorship opportunities available for this event. Click here for more information.
