Coming Saturday, November 21, 2020



The fourth annual Pursapalooza fundraiser was held at Wood Library on Saturday, November 23, 2019.  Shoppers enthusiastically lined up outside the library before the doors opened at 4PM, eager to snag a great deal on a designer purse or costume jewelry.  In just a few short hours, this popular fundraiser netted $13,740 for Wood Library’s life-enriching services for adults.

Library Director Jenny Goodemote expressed gratitude to everyone in the community “who donated literally hundreds of purses and bags full of jewelry.  The support for this event is just tremendous.  We could not pull off this event without a terrific team of volunteers who coordinate every detail and spend hours sorting, pricing, and cleaning purses and jewelry.”   Goodemote also noted the generous donations of gift certificates by area businesses which were paired with purses for a raffle.

Event sponsors were Canandaigua Air Center, Canandaigua Auto Wash, Canandaigua The Medicine Shoppe, Crown Jewelry, Friends of Wood Library, Lake Country Physical Therapy, Light and Life Yoga by Dianne, Michele Kisly Photography, Monica’s Pies, Nolan’s on the Lake, Quail Summit, Sandy Reed, Skorich Designs, Rochester Air Center, Rochester Homebuilders Association, UR Medicine Thompson Health, Wolfe Insurance Agency, and Zotos International.

Food and drinks were donated by Bon Ami French Bistro, Good Life Tea, Heron Hill Winery, Macri’s Deli & Café, Rio Tomatlán, Sinful Confections by Kathryn Casella, and Vineyards Wine & Spirits.
