The night will feature "fabulous fun", signature cocktails, and a designer handbag auction. The featured speaker will be Rachel Giannini from the acclaimed documentary "No Small Matter". According to the Facebook event:

Every second, over one million neurological connections are made in a child’s brain. Rachel empowers listeners to make the most of every moment. With a mixture of personal stories, reflection, and tangible takeaways, this keynote gets you in the feels as you hear about your actual impact on young children and families.

Dress is cocktail attire. Black or white colors are suggested, but so is orange, which is the official color of Women's United QC, symbolizing optimism and energy. Women United's mission is to "make the Quad Cities the best place to raise kids".

Tickets for 'Power of the Purse' are $100 each, or you can get a table of 8 for $750. You can get details on the event and tickets at United Way QC's website.
