Help Spread Awareness About Arthritis at the DC Purses with Power Event!

PWP-Logo (2)Oh how I miss being out and about! What better way to ease back into DC’s social scene than by attending the 2nd Annual Purses with Power Auction and Social!

Purses with Power is a “girls night out”themed event where attendees come together to network, socialize and shop while supporting a worthy cause and spreading awareness around arthritis. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States and affects women nearly twice as often as men. This event is used as a platform to target women, spreading awareness and education to provide them with resources to prevent and control arthritis in partnership with the Arthritis Foundation. This year’s ultimate Girls Night Out is hosted by Dr. JC Hayward, a 40 year veteran anchor at WUSA9 and DC’s first female anchor, recently inducted into the National Association of Broadcast Journalists’ Hall of Fame. The night will include Bacardi’s signature cocktails, light refreshments, hors d’oeuvres, Red Velvet Cupcakes, a silent auction featuring a number of designer handbags and other great items, style tips from Super Fashion Stylist Shell B. Cheri, and entertainment by DJ Afuw.

As someone not personally affected by arthritis, I am looking forward to learning more about how I can join efforts to spread awareness about such a worthy cause. I am so honored to be among an amazing group of bloggers supporting this event. Please be sure to check out a couple of their posts to learn more about how arthritis impacts the lives of many:
