Pursapalooza November 23, 2024

Now in its 9th year, Wood Library’s popular purse party fundraiser returns on November 23, 2024.  This event is fabulous in every sense of the word and has generated a faithful following – plus valued support for Wood Library!

Pursapalooza typically attracts women who have a passion for purses and are happy to support Wood Library while they shop, sip, and socialize.  We add new twists to the event every year to keep it fresh and to offer our shoppers an amazing experience, great deals, and lots of fun.

Everything in our showroom is donated by community members.  Designer purses, everyday bags, bangles and bling – there is something for everyone!   Our shoppers get amazing deals on hundreds of new and gently-used purses and jewelry, and have a chance to win one of five new designer purses paired with gift certificates from area businesses.

Consider getting involved this year as a sponsor or raffle donor and help us raise money for Wood Library.  Your contribution will support Wood Library’s awesome services and programs that benefit everyone in our community.  Details about sponsorship opportunities and how to donate a raffle item can be found here

Fundraising is an important part of the library’s operating budget.  Last year, Pursapalooza netted more than $16,000 for library services and programs.  We want to build on this success!   Your support of Pursapalooza will help us innovate and adjust library programs as people’s needs change from year to year – and offer community-focused services that help people be well for life.

VOLUNTEERS WANTED!  Sign up for purse and jewelry sorting, cleaning, and pricing.  Sessions run July 16 through the end of September.
