Fifth annual Purses for Partners to be held

The fifth annual Purses for Partners, a luncheon and purse auction to benefit Kinship Partners, will be April 21 in the Gull Lake Center at Grand View Lodge. Purse viewing and the silent auction will begin at 11:30 a.m. and lunch will be served at noon. Tickets for this one of a kind event for women and girls are $30 for adults and $15 for girls 12 and under. They may be purchased by calling the Brainerd Kinship office at 454-8012 or (877) 730-5437.

There will be both a silent and a live auction. Purses for gals of all ages will be auctioned and each purse will contain a special extra surprise gift from an area business.

All money raised benefits the children’s programs of Kinship Partners.

The mission of Kinship Partners is to provide positive role models and guidance to youth in our communities.
