Tea and Teddy Bears!
Power of the Purse Christmas Tea 2019

The ladies of the Power of the Purse enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon at this year’s Holiday Tea Party. The festive décor of the Global Tea Mart was paired with a delectable array of finger sandwiches and sweet treats at every table. Members learned the interesting history of tea and also about the event’s goal- to raise funds to purchase additional teddy bears for children visiting the emergency department. We are happy to report that we met our goal and will be able to purchase an additional 200 bears this holiday season!

It’s been a great year of fellowship, fun and success. In addition to supporting the Teddy Bear Program, the Power of the Purse raised over $49,000 in 2019 to help create the resource guide for our Perinatal Bereavement Support Group, placed Ben’s Bells in the ICU, and unique Birthing Chairs in the Maternal Child Health areas, and continued support of the July Stroke Camp. We could not have done this without your dedication to our goals. A huge “Thank you!”
