Join Peaceful Paths on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at the Gainesville Women's Club as we kick off a Covid-conscious event, the 6th Annual Power of the Purse Brunch! Learn about the impact of financial abuse in the lives of survivors and ways you can get personally involved. You will also hear first-hand how our Economic Empowerment Program has created a path of self-sufficiency for survivors who have participated in the Financial Literacy Coursework.


We are planning a delicious brunch prepared by our friends at Dos Mamas that will offer the flexibility of social distanced dining at the event or grab-n-go for those that want to take their meal home.   We have several guidelines in place to host a "Covid Concious" brunch. 


  • We are selling a limited number of tickets so we will be at 50% capacity in the event space.

  • We are limiting the # of guests at each table 

  • We will have a strict stand, up-mask up guideline

  • Guests will have the flexibility of walking around the silent auction to get an in person peek at the purses, but the convenience to do all bidding from their cell phones right from their table!

*Please read this important information to access our online handbag auction!

Our amazing handbag auction and program will be managed through a mobile bidding app to provide supporters the option to participate from home or in person. The designer handbag auction will open on Sunday, April 11 at 10 am and close at Saturday, April 17 at 11:30 am during our in-person brunch so attendees can take their winnings home.  *Should a remote bidder win a purse, we will have curb-side pick up at Peaceful Paths between April 19-21 or by appointment.

We will email and/or text you your unique personal bidding information prior to the auction opening on April 11 so you can pre-bid prior to the brunch. If you do not receive the text from us by April 9, please email us at fundraising@peacefulpaths.org and we will get you registered.
